Jay Humphries had the misfortune of landing in Milwaukee at a time when the Bucks were really entering into a period of transition and coming to the end of their great spell of consistently challenging in the East. If anything, had he played for the Bucks a few years either side of when he actually did, he’d probably be more of a household name in Bucks circles to this very day.
Still, Humphries was a steady pair of hands at a time when the Bucks needed somebody who could hold the team together and lead confidently from the point guard spot.
After arriving in a trade with the Suns that saw sharpshooter Craig Hodges move in the opposite direction, Humphries thrived in the best spell of his career with the extended opportunities he was afforded by Del Harris.
For his time as a Buck, Humphries averaged 13.4 points, 6 assists and 2.7 rebounds in his four-and-a-half seasons in Milwaukee.
