The Brooklyn Nets have re-signed power forward Kris Humphries to a two-year $24 million deal, according to a report on the team’s website.
The former first-round pick of the Utah Jazz in 2004, Humphries has put up his best numbers over the last two and a half seasons with the Nets, improving last year to 13.8 points and 11 rebounds per game.
“Kris has been a very consistent player for us over the past two years,” Nets general manager Billy King said. “He has developed into one of the top rebounding forwards in the league, and we are very pleased to welcome him back.”
The signing of the 27-year-old Humphries should round out a much-improved Nets lineup that has retained point guard Deron Williams while adding shooting guard Joe Johnson.
