Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries might not remain in Boston for long as the Boston Celtics will likely explore the trade market for two of the players they just acquired, according to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy.
Wallace and Humphries are headed to Boston in a mega-deal with the Brooklyn Nets that was agreed upon Thursday night, but can't be officially completed until July 10 due to an NBA moratorium. Brooklyn teammates MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans, Kris Joseph and three future first-round picks are also headed to Brooklyn. The Nets will receive Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry in the deal.
Wallace still has three years and $30 million left on his contract and doesn't seem to be a great fit for the rebuild in Boston. But because of his future salary and declining play, though, it may be difficult for Boston to trade him for any significant assets.
Humphries is owed $12 million in the final year of a two-year deal, though, so he could have some value as an expiring contract despite being in the doghouse last season in Brooklyn.
Murphy believes the Celtics might also look to move Brandon Bass, who's owed about $13.6 million over the next two years, though that contract isn't quite as bad.
