Last season was a good one for Kris Humphries. Besides getting engaged to Kim Kardashian, hereby known as the hottest WAG on the planet, he finally broke out by cracking the starting lineup of the New Jersey Nets.
In 74 games, he averaged 10 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, easily proving himself to be one of the most physical and athletic power forwards in the NBA.
That being said, if Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov wants to win, he would have to be insane not to retain Humphries. Still, there are a few things to consider regarding the 6'9" rebounding machine and his future with the team set to move to Brooklyn in the next couple of years.
First, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul are set to hit free agency next offseason and considering Prokhorov wants to add stars to his team, going after just one of those guys could mean letting Humphries walk.
Also let's not forget that Humphries is about to enter his eighth NBA season and last year was the first where he saw significant playing time. He was great when he played, but there is always the risk of him being a one-and-done player.
Finally, and this could prove to be more important than we all think, Humphries and Kardashian just got married. Considering how most of his new bride's family is based in Los Angeles, there is always the possibility that he could make a move out west so that she can be closer to them.
Regardless of what happens, the team that signs Humphries could quite possibly be getting the best defender on the free-agent market.
Probable Destination: Los Angeles Clippers
