Humphries announced Tuesday via his personal Instagram account that he has retired from professional basketball.
The 34-year-old had been out of basketball since 2016-17, so his retirement announcement was mostly just a formality. The 14th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, Humphries spent 13 seasons in the league with the Jazz, Raptors, Mavericks, Nets, Celtics, Wizards, Hawks and Suns. Over 800 career regular-season appearances, Humphries averaged 6.7 points and 5.4 rebounds in 17.8 minutes per game.
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.
Humphries is expected to play Sunday against Cleveland, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Humphries popped up on the injury report Saturday with a strained neck, but the expectation is that he'll play through the ailment Sunday. With Paul Millsap resting, Humphries started Friday's game against the Cavs, finishing with 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes.
Humphries will start at center Friday against the Cavs, Hawks play-by-play announcer Bob Rathbun reports.
Humphries will enter Atlanta's starting lineup in place of Dwight Howard, who is being handed the night off. Considering the Cavs will be without their starting center, Tristan Thompson (thumb), as well, Humphries should like his chances of making an impact, particularly because Paul Millsap will be rested for the Hawks, too, opening even more frontcourt minutes for Humphries. In two starts this season, Humphries has averaged 5.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 21.0 minutes per game.
Humphries will start at center for Saturday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
With Dwight Howard (rest) out Saturday, Humphries will draw the start at center, despite only playing in 45 games this season, averaging just 11.8 minutes when he does play. Though it's unclear how much time he'll see, Humphries averages 14.2 points and 10.4 rebounds per 36 minutes, possibly making him a solid DFS option if he can get at least a 20-minute workload.
Humphries (coach's decision) failed to see the floor in a 119-111 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Humphries hasn't played in any of the Hawks' last six games, and coach Mike Budenholzer's increased preference to use small-ball lineups won't help the 32-year-old's case for cracking the rotation. Mike Muscala has been phased out of the frontcourt mix lately as well, but since he's consistently ranked ahead of Humphries in the pecking order this season, Muscala would likely be the first big man to reenter the rotation if Budenholzer wants a more traditional backup option at center over natural power forwards Ersan Ilyasova and Paul Millsap.
Humphries (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 109-104 overtime win over the Trail Blazers.
Humphries was dropped from the rotation for the third time in six games, as coach Mike Budenholzer elected to use only one reserve big man (Mike Muscala) while instead leaning more heavily on his starters. Even when he cracks the rotation, Humphries frequently sees less than 20 minutes, making it difficult to wring out much fantasy value from him.
Humphries put up a season-high 14 points (3-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes in a 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday.
With the Hawks missing Dwight Howard (rest) and Mike Muscala (ankle), Humphries was called upon to serve as the team's top reserve in the frontcourt, and he ended up seeing his most minutes of the season while offering stellar shooting from the outside. Humphries has shown the ability to score and rebound well on a per-minute basis throughout his career, but his defensive deficiencies will result in him maintaining only a bit role in the rotation when the Hawks have their full complement of bodies in the frontcourt. Muscala could be at risk of sitting out Wednesday against the Pistons, but with Howard set to return for that contest, Humphries will be in line for a downgrade in playing time.
Humphries contributed 13 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 117-97 win over the Nets.
Humphries had his most productive of the year, as he filled out the stat sheet and posted his best scoring performance of the season. The 31-year-old has bounced in and out of the rotation all season, but this game could put Humphries in line for a more stable role moving forward.
Humphries will return to the bench for Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves.
Humphries drew the start on Friday against the Nuggets, as Dwight Howard was sitting out with back spasms. He was solid in relief, posting 10 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a block over 22 minutes, but will head back to the bench with Howard returning to the lineup. Humphries will likely see his playing time take a significant hit with this move, making him irrelevant in the majority of fantasy leagues. Prior to Friday, Humphries hadn't seen more than five minutes in each of the Hawks' last eight games.
Humphries will move into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports.
The Hawks will deploy a big lineup to start Friday's game, bumping Kyle Korver to the bench and plugging Humphries into the front court. Humphries had not played in any of the Hawks' last three games, and he hasn't played double-digit minutes since Dec. 3 when he posted 10 points over 17 minutes. He figures to see a healthy chunk of playing time against the Nuggets on Friday, but Mike Muscala figures to see plenty of time off the bench as well.
Humphries scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists and a block in 18 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 117-96 win over the 76ers.
It was Humphries' best performance so far this season, but minutes and production will be hard to find for the veteran big, as he remains stuck on the bench behind Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard. An injury to Howard that pushes Humphries into the starting five and boosts his fantasy value isn't out of the question though, as Howard has missed at least 10 games in four of the last five seasons.
Humphries turned in 11 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound and one assist across 14 minutes in Wednesday's 123-116 loss to the Lakers.
Injuries to Mike Scott (knee) and Tiago Splitter (hamstring) have made Humphries a consistent member of the Hawks' frontcourt rotation to begin the season, and that's unlikely to change over the next few weeks. Though his role looks to be stable, with both Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard regularly seeing 30 or more minutes, there won't be enough court time available for Humphries to gain much fantasy appeal. He had eight total points in the Hawks' first three games of the season.
Humphries will enter the starting lineup at power forward for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Pistons, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Humprhies didn't see the floor during Monday's game against the Cavaliers, but with Paul Millsap (illness) and Mike Muscala (rest) sidelined Thursday, Humphries will have a shot at seeing some extended run. Once the regular season begins, Humphries is expected to play only a minor role off the bench behind Millsap.
Humphries was held out of Sunday's preseason game against the Cavaliers for rest purposes, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Coach Mike Budenholzer said he simply wanted to use Sunday's game to spread the minutes around to some of Hawks' other frontcourt players, with Ryan Kelly and Walter Tavares both picking up run. The expectation is that Humphries will hold down a consistent, but minor bench role during the regular season.
Humphries agreed to terms with the Hawks on Monday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Humphries jumped between the Hawks, Suns, and Wizards in the 2015-16 season, but it appears he will start out with the Hawks again in 2016-17. He agreed to the one year, $4 million dollar deal on Monday. Humphries had 21 appearances with the Hawks last season and averaged 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14 minutes a game.
