According to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, the Brooklyn Nets and forward Kris Humphries have agreed to terms on a two-year, $24 million contract. NBA.com's David Aldridge confirmed the report. The contract is totally guaranteed, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Spears also is reporting the Charlotte Bobcats offered Humphries a three-year, $28 million deal.
Last season, Humphires made $8 million and averaged a career-high 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds per game. Those numbers could dwindle a bit this season, as Humphries will need to share the ball with starters Deron Williams (point guard), Joe Johnson (shooting guard), Gerald Wallace (small forward) and Brook Lopez (center).
Humphries, 27, is entering his eighth season in the league and was rumored to be one of the pieces of a possible blockbuster deal involving Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.
"Kris has been a very consistent player for us over the past two years," said Nets general manager Billy King. "He has developed into one of the top rebounding forwards in the league, and we are very pleased to welcome him back."
