07:35 AM ET 12.24 | After a middling month of December, Avery Johnson decided finally to switch things up in the Nets' rotation. The player who saw his minutes take the biggest hit was Kris Humphries, who never got into [Sunday's] 95-92 win at the Barclays Center after starting 20 of the first 25 games and playing in all of them. ... [Sunday's] DNP was the latest step in what has been a gradual reduction in minutes for Humphries, who played fewer than 20 minutes in five of the previous six games. But Humphries, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract as a free agent in July to return to the Nets after averaging a double-double each of the past two seasons, admitted not playing came as a bit of a surprise.

Dude can get numbers but IMO I dont know how you paid this guy $12 million a year. If I recall no one else even wanted this guy. Something about your double doubles just do not add up.

Cause of Andre Blatche Humphries I admit sees less minutes.
Blatche is a better player and proved a change in scenery has him focused and all about basketball.
Humphries doesn't even rebound the way he use to last season.
Evans gets more, as does Lopez & Blatche...
Humphries?
Definitely odd man out....

Humpries: 7 rebounds per game at 12 million per year.Lopez: 6.9 rebounds per game at 15 million per year.Where are the basketball geniuses that insisted this was a good deal?

But you can't put a price on the great publicity and professionalism he brings to the team.
