Kris Humphries is adjusting to a new part of his career as a stretch-4.
Humphries has been a midrange jumper specialist to a three-point shooter.
“I got to be in better shape, to take what I showed I do last year and then add the three-ball to it,” said Humphries, who was in the starting lineup Tuesday. “You’re further out, so as far as offensive rebounding, that’s a run in and a run out. And then you’re running back and then you got to set your feet and have your breath together and shoot it. It’s different. I’m still getting used to it.”
Humphries went 2-for-26 from three-point range over his first 11 NBA seasons.
“I haven’t really worked on shooting threes, like really worked on it, ever,” Humphries, 30, said. “Other than maybe college and stuff but that’s a close three. Now I’ve got to adapt to what we’re trying to do and get in better shape.”
