Cavs Trade Rumors: Dwight Howard Deal Now Involves Kris Humphries Potentially Landing In Cleveland

As NBA free agency continues this month, the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be getting involved in a major trade with their recent haul of draft picks. According to Ken Berger of CBS it looks as if Kris Humphries could end up in Cleveland as a result of trade that would send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn from Orlando:

One possible destination for Humphries is Cleveland, who would get the forward in a sign-and-trade arrangement, source says. @KBergCBS via Twitter

Humphries is coming off of his best NBA season after turning pro in 2004. The big man averaged career highs in minutes per game (34.9), points (13.8), rebounds (11) and assists (1.5) as he started 62 games for the Nets. The nine-year veteran was a full-time starter for the first time in his career.

Cleveland is involved in the trade because they have a stockpile of up to six first-round picks in the next three NBA Drafts. The Cavs are looking to add assets and help facilitate the trade between Orlando and New Jersey.
