Was waiving Kris Humphries a good move for Suns?

Just 10 days after the Phoenix Suns acquired Kris Humphries and DeJuan Blair in a trade with the Washington Wizards that sent Markieff Morris out of town, the Suns have waived both men.

On Sunday -- six days after waiving Blair -- the Suns waived Humphries, who played just four games in Phoenix. He will reportedly sign with the Atlanta Hawks, which would be his eighth NBA team in his 12-year career.

Of course, gaining Humphries and Blair wasn't the primary objective of the trade -- rather, it was to acquire the Wizards' 2016 first-round draft pick. That pick is protected, meaning Washington would keep it if it were to be a top-nine pick in this year's draft -- but that isn't likely.

If the Suns do receive the pick, it will give them three first-round draft picks in 2016, plus an early second-round pick -- a fantastic opportunity to rebuild the struggling franchise with a combination of draft picks and trades.

But what about Humphries, who averaged 7.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game during his brief time in the Valley? Should the Suns have held on to him?

ABC15's Craig Fouhy and Jason Snavely debated that topic in Sunday's "In The Ring" segment. Check out the above video to hear what they had to say about the Suns' move.
