The Washington Wizards have signed forward Kris Humphries to a three-year contract worth $13 million via a sign-and-trade with the Celtics, per multiple reports. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report both reported the signing.
The third year of the deal is reportedly a team option. From Wojnarowski's report:
The Boston Celtics are finalizing a sign-and-trade agreement with Washington to fit Humphries' deal into the salary cap, sources said. The Wizards can send Boston part of the trade exception earned with Houston in a recent sign-and-trade deal for Trevor Ariza.
The sign-and-trade comes shortly after former Wizards forward Trevor Booker agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Utah Jazz. Humphries will be part of a partially revamped Wizards front line that also includes Paul Pierce, who signed with Washington for the two years and $10 million, and Marcin Gortat, who re-signed with the Wizards on a $60 million deal.
Humphries averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season for Boston.
