Sources have now learned that PF Kris Humphries will re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets for a two-year deal worth $25 million. He will be a part of the franchise moving to Brooklyn after spending two years in New Jersey with the lowly Nets.
Humphries’ stats were impressive as he averaged a double double last season with 13.8 points per game and 11 rebounds per game in his best season as a pro. He is a hustle player who fights for every rebound, plays solid defense, and scores when the team needs him to score.
Humphries’ signing is a great move by GM Billy King, as now the starting five is set. It will include Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, and Brook Lopez. Humphries has had two impressive seasons with the Nets after coming to the team as an unknown commodity. After the bogus Kim Kardashian wedding and some quality play at the Power Forward position, Humphries has made a name for himself. While Dwight Howard to the Nets would have been an enormous trade for Brooklyn, the Nets are better off with Humphries at the four spot and Lopez at center. The lineup is filled with solid players at each position, making the team favorites to reach the playoffs.
