Although the NBA has yet to crown a champion for the 2011-2012 season, it is never too early to look ahead. Many of the players available for hire this summer could serve as missing pieces to teams looking to get over the hump, including Kris Humphries.
Humphries, a player who has found himself in the spotlight for many other reasons than basketball throughout his career, is actually one of the most underrated guys in the league today.
He can rebound with the best of them, does a great job of finishing around the rim and will be looking to cash a big check this summer after stepping up in Brook Lopez's absence and showing his worth.
Just how much is he worth? Much more than people give him credit for. Like him or not, he would be a great addition to any team, but these seven organizations would be foolish to not pursue Humphries this summer.
