The 76ers waived Humphries on Saturday, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports. Kumphries scored just three points in four exhibition games, and failed to make much of an impression during his stint with the club. The veteran has bounced around the league in recent years, with Philadelphia being his sixth team since the 2012-13 season. It is unclear what his next move will be.
Humphries is planning to sign a non-guaranteed deal with the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Humphries will have a chance to make the final roster, provided he's up to par during training camp. He's bounced around the league as of late, landing in Atlanta last season -- his fifth team since 2012-13. Last year, he averaged 4.6 points and 3.7 boards across 12.3 minutes per game while shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc -- an area he's worked to improve over the past two seasons. Even if he makes the team, it's doubtful he'll garner a bigger workload than in 2016-17, making him avoidable in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
Humphries posted five points (2-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds and two blocked shots across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 104-86 loss to the Pacers. With the Hawks locked in for the playoffs, Humphries drew the start with Paul Millsap (rest) on the bench along with the rest of Atlanta's first unit. The 32-year-old journeyman performed admirably while Millsap was out with injury, and he may earn some more playing time during Atlanta's playoff run as a result. He's only averaging 12 minutes of usage per game this year, so one shouldn't expect Humphries to make a huge impact moving forward.
Humphries will start at center for Wednesday's tilt with the Pacers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Hawks are resting a ton of players Wednesday, which includes both Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap. That allows Humphries to pick up the start at center and he should be in line for a hefty workload, which could make him an intriguing and cheap DFS play for Wednesday's slate of games.
Humphries (neck) will be available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Humphries had been listed as probable on the Hawks' injury report, so it was always expected that he'd be available for the contest. The veteran big man turned in a productive outing Friday against the Cavaliers with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes, but expect his minutes to take a steep hit now that he's back on the bench with Paul Millsap (rest) and Dwight Howard (rest) reclaiming their usual starting roles in the frontcourt.
