Prior to yesterday’s win against Cleveland, Avery Johnson had some high praise for Kris Humphries, giving an indication as to what his future with the organization may be:
“We want Humphries back,” Johnson said. “What the Nets are all about and where we’re going, Humphries is our kind of player. We’ve told him that. We would love to have you as a part of our program as we move forward.”
If you asked me to predict that Avery would say this about Hump before the season started, I would have never believed it, but Humphries deserves the praise. However, I only want to see the Nets bring him back as a back-up to Derrick Favors. Favors needs to be “the man” in the front court sooner rather than later, and I hope Avery has the patience to let this happen.
