NBA Free Agency Rumors 2012: Kris Humphries 'Close' To Re-Signing With Brooklyn Nets, Says GM Billy King

The Brooklyn Nets are "close" to a deal to re-sign power forward Kris Humphries, general manager Billy King told reporters Friday at the team's pep rally at Brooklyn's Borough Hall.

King cautioned that "it's a process," according to Howard Beck of the New York Times. But it looks like the Nets are close to keeping their leading rebounder and continuing to solidify their rotation as they position themselves for a strong playoff run next year.

It has been reported that the Nets are willing to offer Humphries three years and $24 million to remain with the team. His other primary suitor, the Charlotte Bobcats, are said to be offering three years and $22 million.

Humphries averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds last season. His rebounding average ranked him fifth in the NBA.
