Kris Humphries To Sign With New Jersey Nets, According To Report

The New Jersey Nets are in the process of finalizing a one-year deal with free agent power forward Kris Humphries that will pay him between $7-8 million, reports Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski

One of the most well-regarded free agents still on the market, Humphries averaged 10.0 points and 10.4 rebounds in 27.9 minutes per game last year for the Nets. He notched at least 10 rebounds in 15 of New Jersey's final 16 games, achieving a double-double in 14 of those contests.

The 26-year-old Humphries is a seven-year NBA veteran who blossomed under coach Avery Johnson last season. Prior to averaging a double-double last year, he had never averaged more than 7.1 points or 6.4 rebounds per game. 

Humphries is expected to be available on Wednesday for New Jersey's final preseason game. He would instantly become the front runner for New Jersey's starting power forward position.
