The Charlotte Bobcats, who are in desperate need for some frontcourt help, are once again inquiring about the services of Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries, according to the Charlotte Observer.

The Cleveland Cavaliers backed out of a deal yesterday that would have sent Humphries there because they did not like what they would have gotten in return.

The 6-foot-9, 235-pound Humphries would likely command a paycheck of $10 million a year over three or four seasons, according to reports.

In 2011-12, Humphries made $8 million and averaged career highs in points, rebounds, blocks and minutes per game
