Report: Celtics may look to trade Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries
The Boston Celtics’ acquisition of Brooklyn Nets forwards Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries in a trade for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett became official on Friday, but Boston may already be looking to move the two veterans.
The Celtics may look to trade both Wallace and Humphries, according to CSNNE.com’s Sherrod Blakely.
Both players are signed at high salary figures — Wallace, 30, for three more years and about $30 million and Humphries, 28, for one year and $12 million.
After the trade, which also netted Boston MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph and Keith Bogans, the Celtics have more active players on their roster than they are allowed to carry.
In the first year of their contracts, Wallace averaged just 7.7 points on 40-percent shooting in his first season in Brooklyn, while Humphries’ numbers dropped to 5.8 points and 5.6 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.
