Kris Humphries, one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA, has reached an agreement to stay with the Nets for the next two seasons. The deal is worth 24 million dollars, so he will receive 12 million per year. Hump announced his deal via twitter, taking a jab at rapper Kanye West, when he said "Up at Brooklyn! Lucky Jay didn't drop me from the team".
Humphries is judged very hard, but he averaged a double-double last season, averaging over 10 rebounds and points per game. He played solid defensively and became a fan favorite after being attacked unfairly by opponent fans because of his short marriage to media starlet Kim Kardashian. He was fifth in the league in rebounds last year, and he fills a strong need for a power forward who can rebound well and can play substantial minutes.
In other Nets news, they have retained Keith Bogans, a shooting guard who played five games with the Nets before getting injured. He will provide very good perimeter defense off the bench, and can hit spot up three's well. Bogans has made the shooting guard position very deep, having Joe Johnson, MarShon Brooks and Bogans all at the position.
Welcome back home, Kris! I personally can't wait to see you in black and white, and I'm sure most Nets fans feel the same!
