The Phoenix Suns announced Sunday they have agreed to a buyout with power forward Kris Humphries.

Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com reported the Atlanta Hawks are the most interested party for Humphries.

He joined the Suns on Feb. 18 in a trade with the Washington Wizards. In his first game with his new team, Humphries had 18 points and 12 rebounds. He talked about what he brings to the game after his strong first effort, per Paul Coro of AZCentral.com.

"I’ve always been kind of a hustle player, just rebound and defend on the floor,” Humphries said. “I can bring that to this team. I’m in shape to play that many minutes, but the way I want to play, more up and down, I’ve got to get in better shape.”

The 31-year-old has averaged 6.9 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in his 12-year career. He isn't going to add a lot of scoring if he joins the Hawks, but he can be a solid contributor off the bench. His presence underneath could help the Hawks as they look to grab a top-three seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
