Nets’ Kris Humphries quiet on upcoming free agency



HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — With the NBA on the eve of a potential lockout, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries didn’t want to talk about his upcoming free agency.

Reality television. Fiancee Kim Kardashian. A change of agents. They also were out of bounds for the NBA’s fifth-leading rebounder this past season.

What Humphries wanted to talk about was his 45-minute visit with young patients Wednesday at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at the Hackensack University Medical Center.

“I think one thing that everyone has to know is that no one is beyond hospitals and that everyone is somehow connected to someone who is struggling,” Humphries said. “I have had family members deal with cancer and all sorts of diseases and different things. So it’s something you have to know. It could very well be your kid in there someday.”
