Kris Humphries Bio Blast

Posted on Feb 29 2016 - 12:28pm by Chase Irle

The Atlanta Hawks have agreed to sign Kris Humphries once he clears waivers. Humphries is most known for his short-lived marriage to reality TV star Kim Kardashian off the court, but has quietly put together a decent career in the NBA. He was drafted at 19 years of age by the Utah Jazz with the 14th overall pick in 2004 draft. His time in Utah was pretty disappointing for such a high draft pick. Humphries only averaged 3.6 points on under 40% shooting and 2.7 rebounds in only two seasons for the Jazz. He signed with the Raptors in 2006 where he spent the next three seasons. His numbers were not much better with the Raptors, but his career turned around in the 2009-2010 season, when he was traded from the Dallas Mavericks to the New Jersey Nets. Humphries spent four seasons in the Nets organization, starting 127 games, averaging 9.5 points and 8.6 rebounds. During the time, Humphries demonstrated his relentless effort on the boards and the ability to stretch the floor with a nice jump shot. Over the last three seasons, Humphries has spent time with Boston, Washington and most recently Phoenix. His numbers did take a dip from his days with the Nets, but Humphries has still shown a great ability to rebound the ball and could play a nice role for the Hawks off the bench. Humphries is in his 12th NBA season, but is still only 30 years old. He still looks to have a good amount left in the tank and could possibly be on the Hawks roster past this season if he can impress down the stretch run for Atlanta.
