NBA Rumors: 7 Reasons Kris Humphries Will Get the 76ers over the Hump

According to a recent Philly.com report, the Philadelphia 76ers are believed to be interested in Brooklyn Nets star Kris Humphries.

The 6'9", 235-pound forward is coming off of the best season of his career; in 2011-12, Humphries averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds per game while shooting a solid 48.1 percent from the field.

At 27 years old, Humphries would be an ideal fit for a young Sixers roster that is poised to make some noise in the Eastern Conference. But with the team dangerously close to the salary cap, one of the few ways that Philadelphia could sign Humphries would be to use the NBA's amnesty clause on power forward Elton Brand.

Doing so would free up more than $18 million in cap space next season—more than enough to get a deal with Humphries done. So with that move being a definite possibility this summer, let's take a look at seven reasons why Humphries will get the 76ers over the proverbial "hump" in the Eastern Conference.
