Kris Humphries, Wizards agree to $13 million contract

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Washington added a veteran presence on the inside with the addition of Humphries.

Kris Humphries is headed to the Washington Wizards on a three-year contract that will pay the veteran power forward $13 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The signing comes just after the Wizards lost power forward Trevor Booker to the Utah Jazz.

Humphries is Washington's third major move of the offseason, following the signing of Paul Pierce and the decision to re-sign center Marcin Gortat to a $60 million contract. Washington lost small forward Trevor Ariza to the Houston Rockets in addition to Booker's deflection earlier in the offseason.

Humphries turns 30 this season and will be expected to provide rebounding and interior toughness on Washington's second unit. He has averaged double-digit rebounds twice in his career. Last season, Humphries shot a career high 50 percent from the field in 69 games for the Boston Celtics.

This will be Humphries' 11th season in the NBA after being selected No. 14 overall in the 2004 draft. He averaged 8.4 points per game for the Celtics last season.
