Default Kris Humphries re-signs for 2 Year $24 Million

NY Post:

Now that the Nets have “Brooklyn’s Backcourt” in place, they have turned their attention to addressing their frontcourt depth.

After re-signing center Brook Lopez on Wednesday, Nets general manager Billy King said yesterday the team is still negotiating with power forward Kris Humphries.

“He wants to be here,” King said at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall at the press conference unveiling the team’s All-Star backcourt of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. “So now it’s about making the deal work.”

UPDATE: Kris Humphries is signed to a 2 year 24 million dollar deal.
Kris Humphries back-to-back double-double seasons paid off big time for the Nets power forward. Brooklyn has resigned him. Marc Stein first broke the news.

The deal is reportedly two years at $24 million, all fully guaranteed. Humphries' haul brings the Nets off-season spending to more than $330 million, which David Aldridge called "unprecedented" in league history. The Nets are also at or near a payroll of $80 million, meaning Mikhail Prokhorov will pay a luxury tax of $10 million.

Hump's deal, like others before his, is considerably higher than what was anticipated by the league, but Humphries finished fifth in the NBA in rebounding last season and has been one for handful of players with back-to-back double doubles, 10 and 10 in 2010-11 and 14 and 11 in 2011-12.

Humphries confirmed the signing in a tweet, "I'm up at Brooklyn!", then in a loaded message to Jay-Z, added, "@S_C_ "lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team" lol!" Kanye West, now seeing Hump's ex, Kim Kardashian, has rapped that he could get Jay-Z to drop him from the team. Mikhail Prokhorov quickly said that wasn't happening.
