Less than an hour after a report surfaced that the Los Angeles Clippers were propositioned to join the Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic in what would become a four-team blockbuster deal to move Dwight Howard to the Nets, one of the main pieces in the deal put up the first road block in the complex equation.
According to the report filed by ESPN's Chad Ford, Kris Humphries (who is currently a member of the Nets) needed to be persuaded by his agent to sign a one-year deal to join the Cavaliers.
Humphries agent, Dan Fegan, is still trying to convince Humphries to settle for a deal that will be guaranteed for just one year. Fegan also represents Howard.
According to Fegan, that part of the report is inaccurate.
Kris Humphries agent, Dan Fegan, tells SI that talk of a one-year deal for Humphries is "ridiculous."— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) July 9, 2012
Fegan went on to say that he hasn't had any discussions with Humphries about a one-year deal from any team and that his client is only interested in a multi-year, guaranteed deal.
