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.
