Prior to the Nets tip off against the Milwaukee Bucks from Barclays Center, it was announced that Kris Humphries had been pulled from the starting lineup in favor of Reggie Evans.

After being signed to a two-year deal worth a total of $24 million, Humphries has struggled thus far this season, averaging just 8.1 points per game and 8.1 rebounds per game.

While respectable, those numbers are well below the 13.8 points per game and 11 rebounds per game he averaged for the club last season.

It’s also worth nothing that Brook Lopez has missed his fifth straight game and that without him, the Nets defense has been fairly porous.
