The Boston Celtics may be going through a rebuilding phase at the moment, but it seems that despite coming to the end of an expensive contract, there's one guy you wouldn't expect who is still in their plans.

You would be forgiven for thinking that Kris Humphries is playing out his last few games as a Celtic, but not according to GM Danny Ainge.

The former Mr. Kardashian has apparently been in talks with the organization about a new deal. 

“I have had a few conversations with Kris," Ainge said on his weekly interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub.

"Because he's been with us all year, he was with us in the summer and all this year. Kris sort of knows where we are as an organization and he knows we like him. And he knows there is a lot of uncertainty, depending on which direction we choose to go this summer. None of us now.

But he knows we like him, his coaches and teammates like him, we just can’t make any promises yet.”

Humphries was selected with the 14th pick overall in the 2004 draft by the Utah Jazz out of Minnesota and the Golden Gophers.

Since then he has moved around the league with stints at the Toronto Raptors, Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and - since 2013 - the Celtics.

Humphries has been averaging 20 minutes a contest this year as the number two PF behind Brandon Bass. He is racking up 8.5 points a game to go along with 6 rebounds and one assist per contest.
