Report: Kris Humphries to Sign One-Year Deal With Nets

He had a bit of a rough offseason, but fortunately Kris Humphries can now bring his focus back to the game of basketball, as Yahoo! reports the power forward will ink a one-year deal to play in New Jersey once again this season: “Kris Humphries and the New Jersey Nets are finalizing a one-year contract that will pay him between $7 million-$8 million, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Humphries is expected to sign the contract Tuesday and be in uniform for Wednesday’s preseason game against the New York Knicks, sources said. He took his physical in New Jersey Tuesday. Humphries, a power forward, is most famous for his 72-day failed marriage to reality-TV star Kim Kardashian.Humphries envisioned getting $10 million annually on a long-term contract, but that market clearly wasn’t available. The Nets have been careful about offering multiyear deals this offseason, choosing to keep salary-cap space available for the pursuit of possible free agent Dwight Howard next summer.”

    Sucks that everything is revolving around Dwight now… Humphries was a nightly double double.

    He was a double double dude when he was getting that inspirational Kardashian p*ssy. He MIGHT be a double double cat again this contract year. But once he gets his long term deal he’ll be an cornball all over…


    It’s telling that no other NBA teams went after Kris Humphries.

    Kris, how was that ass?

    Just read the Knicks signed Steve Novak. Never heard of that kid a day in my life…

  • Geeg

    Glad he got a good deal — unlike some folks who try 2 think they know what kind of talks he’s been in! Boy’s got PLENTY of game left and no K gave it to him!

    @O, Novak has bin around the L for a minute now, he hit a game winning 3 for the rockets a few years back. He cant do much but he can shoot the 3 well.

    Yea, (I’m overexaggerating here..or am I?) Novak has 1 skill and that is to hit the 3.

    Teams weren’t after him because of what him and his agent wanted. a 4 year 40 million dollar contract.

  • Matt Park

    Should have signed with the Clippers! Although if what nbk said was true, then what is Kris Humphries thinking?? lol

    If that’s what Kris wanted he must have still been coming down off that Kardashian punnany high.

    @ Unf*ckwitable and niQ, good looks on the info. Novak sounds kinda wack now that y’all put his career in perspective. LOL.

    Damn Omar, I’ve known about Novak since he was ballin with Dwyane Wade and Travis Diener at Marquette.
    He aight.
    He’s no Kevin Pittsnogle when it comes to obscure 6’10″ white 3 point shooters tho

    “He’s no Kevin Pittsnogle”

    Best quote ever.

    @IAMORANGE4EVER…..fantasy draft? you get Melo? I sure as hell did. Oh wait, this is about KH? dude was getting double doubles because lopez was a punk on the boards last season. he has claimed that wont happen this year…we shall alllll see!


    @Ldub20 to be honest, I’m not involved in fantasy basketball this season. Good luck to you though. Hope Melo gets you lots of fantasy points. :)

    I wonder if the people at SLAM took bets on the over/under to see how many people would mention Kim Kardashian in some sort of unfunny way?
