(NEW YORK) — The Brooklyn Nets and power forward Kris Humphries have agreed on a two-year deal worth $24 million.
Before joining the Nets in the middle of the 2009-2010 season, Humphries never averaged more than 5.7 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. When he became a full-time starter his career took off. The past two seasons he’s averaged double-double. Last season, the 27-year old Humphries averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds per game.
Humphries’ future with the Nets was at one point in doubt as he was rumored to be part of a trade with the Orlando Magic, so the team could acquire center Dwight Howard.
The Nets have also added Joe Johnson, and have re-signed Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, and Gerald Wallace.
