LAS VEGAS — The musical chairs — or upgrades, depending on the view — continue for the Wizards on Tuesday as they’re on the verge of a sign-and-trade agreement with the Boston Celtics to acquire Kris Humphries, CSNWashington.com has confirmed.

The particulars, however, remain to be worked out.

Humphries replaces Trevor Booker, who agreed to terms with the Utah Jazz earlier in the day. He leaves Washington after four years.

Humphries, 29, will get a three-year deal worth $13 million with a team option for the final year of the deal, Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has reported.

Washington has three trade exceptions that could be part of the deal as Boston tries to rebuild.

In 20 minutes per game in his only season with the Celtics, Humphries averaged 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game that included 30 starts.

Humphries had his most success with the then-New Jersey Nets by averaging double-doubles in consecutive seasons from 2010-12.

He’s a cheaper version of Booker, who received $5 million per year from the Jazz. The Wizards are paying Humphries an average of $4 million per year and with the final not being fully guaranteed it gives them options to get out of the deal for the summer of 2016.
