The Dwight Howard trade has now reached the level of being a kidney stone. Each grueling minute is more painful than the last, and you just want it to be over. A new "stone" has appeared in the rumored multi-team trade, involving Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries.
Possible complication in Dwight 3way deal is Nets FA Kris Humphries would seek 4yr deal with CLE and wouldn't sign 1yr pact, sources tell Y!— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 9, 2012
Humphries is well within his right to ask for a multi-year deal to be a part of this trade and shouldn't just be expected to be content to play on a one-year contract. Humphries averaged a double-double last season with the Nets, but he's being tossed aside in an effort to make this possible trade go down.
In all likelihood, a deal will get worked out if the trade is to commence, but the process continues to drag.
