Troy Murphy may be the starter on Opening Night and Derrick Favors (if he's not traded) may be the starter in the future, but Sunday night, it will be holdover Kris Humphries who'll be starting at power forward. Humphries has been getting his share of praise from Avery Johnson lately. Murphy is expected to play next Saturday.
At the two guard, it'll be Anthony Morrow as Johnson tries to determine who's the best fit as Devin Harris' backcourt mate. Johnson also said he'd like to take everyone on the round-the-world tour but it's unlikely. He expects to make a cut before the team leaves in six days. The Nets will vote on two co-captains before regular season begins.
