Report: Kris Humphries re-signs with the Brooklyn Nets

Forward Kris Humphries will re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets on a two-year contract, reports ESPN's Marc Stein on Twitter.

The 27-year-old Humphries has averaged a double-double the past two seasons. Last year, he scored 13.8 points and grabbed 11.0 rebounds per game.

Humphries, who was famously married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian for 72 days, was a key part of Brooklyn's many attempts to acquire the Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard. In most trade scenarios, Humphries had to agree to a sign-and-trade deal that would have sent him to a third team. For a while, when there were rumors the Nets and Magic were getting close to a deal, it appeared Humphries would head to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But Cleveland backed out when Humphries wouldn't agree to a contract with only one year guaranteed. The Nets are reportedly no longer looking to acquire Howard, meaning Humphries' re-signing helps them complete their frontcourt. With Brooklyn's trade for Joe Johnson, the team should contend for a playoff spot this season.
