Washington Wizards: There’s no ‘Wall’ in Team

The Washington Wizards went out looking for a center that could not only score points and get plays going, but would also serve as a big guy on a generally short roster. While GM Ernie Grunfeld has been focused on bringing Kevin Durant to D.C., he has lost focus when it comes to solving issues that the team has right now. Washington is 12th in the East and is trying to return to...

Poor Kris Humphries can’t seem to catch a break.

Hard evidence that Wizards need a lineup change

The Washington Wizards are 6-4, riding a nice three-game win streak. But expectations are higher than what they've done so far, and there's no reason for them to settle on a particular lineup that might not even work.Here's a quick look at one player who may not fit in the starting lineup.Humphries is shooting just over 40 percent from the floor, and over half his attempts are threes...

Kris Humphries is shooting a mind-numbing 46.4 percent from behind the three-point line, on 3.5 attempts per game. He's already made 11 more threes this year than in every season up to this point combined. It's remarkable, but also necessary. The Washington Wizards need him to stretch the floor, and so long as he makes outside shots Randy Wittman will be happy, per The Washington...

The Morning Wiz: Addressing The Necessity For Kris Humphries’ Mobility

To define a ‘small’ lineup in basketball and particularly in today’s NBA is to identify a floor spread with at least four shooters.

Can Kris Humphries become a stretch four for the Washington Wizards?

Kris Humphries has always been a rugged, traditional power forward. He bangs for rebounds and prefers to use his muscles on the inside than his quickness and athleticism on the perimeter. But Humphries—who's always had a decent enough jumper—may still be evolving, which is great news for the Washington Wizards. Courtesy of CSN Washington's Ben Standig, here's some more information...
