07:09 AM ET 07.16 | Kris Humphries knows the drill: He is an asset, and he has learned one of the most valuable business lessons in the NBA. Never get too comfortable. So even as Humphries was settling into holding his new Celtics jersey with No. 43 stitched onto the front and back, he understood that his $12 million expiring contract could be a giant chip in what president of basketball operations Danny Ainge plans on doing during the infant stages of the team's rebuilding process. Humphries talked with Ainge about his role and was told he would be on this team, but he knows those things have a way of changing quickly. "It's the NBA and if something comes up that's good for the team, I'm sure the team will do it," Humphries said.

He better thank the Russian owner for making him rich and a millionaire. He'll never have that big contract again...

I can't quite figure what the rub is against this guy. He's a legitimate double-double and could be an asset almost anywhere. Someone is going to give him a chance, and those that passed on him are going to be sorry.

He's guilty by association to the haters. Like they wouldn't want to know Kim the way he had the opportunity to. Then again, maybe it's envy...

Lol, while I agree with some that he is an asset (he needs to make less money), this guy has to be the bad luck bryan of the NBA at this point.
