The Brooklyn Nets continued their active off-season and have re-signed power forward Kris Humphries to a two-year, $24 million contract per a report from ESPN reporter Marc Stein:
Just going up online and via SportsCenter: Kris Humprhies is staying with Nets on two-year deal valued at $24 million

Despite being voted as the most disliked player in the NBA in a Forbes fan poll, mostly due to his high-profile yet short -lived marriage to Kim Kardashian, Humphries was one of eight players to average a double-double for 2011-2012 season with averages of 13.8 ppg and 11 rpg.
Humphries re-joins a Nets team along with Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, recently acquired G/F Joe Johnson and European forward Mirza Teletovic to give the franchise a core that on paper should contend for a playoff spot in the East in their first season in Brooklyn.
Humphries was originally drafted 14th overall in 2004 by the Utah Jazz after his freshman season at Minnesota. For his career, Humphries has averaged 6.7 ppg and 5.5 rpg in eight seasons with the Jazz, Raptors, Mavericks and Nets.
