While much of the offseason attention may be focused on starters Al Horford and Kent Bazemore, the contract of late-season acquisition Humphries is about to expire. Count him among those who would like to be back next season. “Of course,” Humphries said this week when asked if he want to be back in Atlanta. “It’s been a great experience for me after being traded and ending up here. Coach (Mike Budenholzer) really wanted me here. Being able to get here and have this experience is great.”
Storyline: Kris Humphries Free Agency
The late-season acquisition appeared in just one of the Hawks’ six playoff games against the Celtics in the first round. The center played 8:48 in a Game 5 blowout win, entering in the fourth quarter with the Hawks leading by 29 points. Budenholzer chose to use a combination of Mike Muscala and Mike Scott to combat the smaller and quicker lineup the Celtics used in the series. Humphries had five DNP-CDs. “I think we’ll need Kris in this series,” Budenholzer said Saturday. “I can see us needing Kris and (Muscala) and everybody. I think Kris is always ready. He’s anxious. He’s let me know he is ready to go.”
Q. I’m curious about picking up a new offense this late in the season. It’s a lot of read and react. How do you expect that to go? A. You look at most of their principles. Boston has run a lot of the same kind of actions. A lot of this is more reads and moving the ball, screening away, getting a two-man game on one side, picks, pops, rolls, spreading the floor with the 4-man and the 5-man. It’s something I’ve been involved in so it should work out. I’ve played in this kind of system before.
