Kris Humphries signs a staggering two-year, $24 mil contract to stay with Nets. Wow thats a lot of paper!

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine
Just going up online and via SportsCenter: Kris Humprhies is staying with Nets on two-year deal valued at $24 million

Good move, wouldve hoped for about $10 mil but happy its 2 years. Now that we have a good PF combo in Hump/Mirza, Reggie can play some back up Center minutes. All we need is a backup center and sign TOKO for 2nd/3rd string SF minutes!!

EDIT For those that only read the first page: The short length of the contract is huge! After playing out a season (or even midseason) he can trade him as an expiring contract since there would only be one year left. This could get us very high quality starter in the $10-15 million rage OR upgrade our bench. The flexibility provided by this short term contract after this season is crucial.

Glad to see The Hump come back. Overpaid or not, Billy King has put together a nice roster that will be competitive. They still need to get Darko, Nazr, or some other capable center to back up Brook Lopez, but other than that, they have a pretty deep team.

Solid deal for Nets and Hump. Hump gets more flack than anyone I've ever seen but he plays his ****ing *** off, you never see that dude NOT soaked head to toe in sweat and battling for every rebound/loose ball.

I'd take him on my team in a heartbeat but I am sure Hump will do anything to stay out of MSG lol.

I think its a great signing for us, especially since we had his bird rights. People need to realize it was about the years, not the money. He can be shipped off next year if he isnt doing well.

The guy is a double double machine, theres not too many players you can say that about.

njnets
07-17-2012, 11:18 AM
Slightly overpaid but at this point, there cap is screwed. 2 extra for each year ain't bad. When healthy, both complement each other really well. Defensively not great but that's why they got Evans.

All that's left is signing a legit 7 footer as depth and there probably done.

That's alot of paper. But they are now a #3 or 4 seed in the East. I also think they are a better rebounding team than anyone in the East. Don't miss shots.

I view Humphries like I viewed Oakley, he's tough. Other than the Kim K debacle, Hump is tough.

Payroll just went over $80 Mil for this year! Thank you Proky!!

Hope the reason they went so high is that they made the 2nd year only partially guaranteed for 2 or 3 Mil. Then they could always trade him, cash and a 2nd rounder and free up space to get below the tax apron and also generate a traded player exception.

Humphries averaged 11 last yr., 10 the yr. before, he's 26, strong build no matter how much we hate him.

I said I view him as Oakley, minus the Kim K crap that everyone keeps hanging over him what's wrong? You saw him backing down to Amar'e when they were trying to punk him? you saw him embrace the boos at MSG and everywhere he played.

Oak and I loved Oak was 9.5 PPG 9.5 RPG 1.1 SPG
Humphries the last 2 seasons has turned into double double man, and he also blocks a shot per gm. There's nothing wrong w/ comparing the 2, both are role players, good rebounders, Oak was an enforcer, that's the only difference.

What's happened in his career is he went from 13 MPG to 20+ MPG.

We're not talking about the Kim K crap. Forget about that TMZ nonsense. Thats for little kids.

Anyone who produces rebounds automatically just doesn't deserve to be compared to Charles Oakley. You are really diminishing what Oakley did for the Knicks, rebounding, defensively, and scored (if called upon). Kris Humphries just rebounds and does some scoring

You understand now why people on here call you a fraud as a Knick fan. I know your response is gonna be "I dont care." Well stop saying your an objective Knicks fan. Your anything but.

Exactly I'm not talking about enforcer wise. I love my Knicks, I love love looooooovvvve my 90's Knicks. Oakley was a role player. That's what Humphries is for the Nets. Oakley today wouldn't be viewed as an enforcer, he'd be fouling out before the game ends. In terms of production on the court, Humphries his last 2 seasons has been a double double, a block per game, and he's a hustle guy. I don't see how comparing the 2 is off, they play the same position, same role, if he were a Knicks player, who would my Knicks fan compare him to watching the last 2 seasons? com'on, lets be real here.

07-17-2012, 11:58 AM
Seems a bit high, but so is every single other free agent contract being signed this off season. At least this one is money being paid due to hard work and never taking a play off. With Lopez - Hump - Gerald as the 3-4-5 I think they're definitely the best rebounding in the East. Joe Johnson will have a green light to jack up shots with those three able to reel them back in.

Double digit production from all 5 of the starters in multiple categories each IMO. Don't hate just to hate because the jersey now says Brooklyn.

Wow, that's a lot of money for him? I would have given him 8 million a year but 12 may be too much. I guess they could work with that number, especially when Wallace is taking 9 million this year (pay will increase after this).

Now that the Howard trade has been shelved, they went signed Humphries instead of letting him go to the Cavs for a one year deal.

Oakley might have been a little better, but I don't know how anyone can get riled up by the comparison. 10-12 boards and 10-12 points per game is 10-12 boards and 10-12 points per game.

Yeah that's my biggest concern. Although the toughness of Reggie helps out a lot. A Camby signing would've been perfect to back-up Brook but you guys got him ahhh. Looking forward to the rivalry as well. But Hump definitely steps up his game (yeah yeah he should be going all out every play but that cliche doesn't always exist) against certain matchups - I watched about 80% of the Nets games last season (online haha) and the games against the Clippers were awesome to watch with the Griffin/Hump matchup. I'm sure he'll step it up a notch against Amare as well.

I dont think you can completely write off Lopez injury this year since I believe it was a foot. That is a tough place to injury for such a big dude. But like I said, I see the Nets as a 5 seed with the team currently constructed. I think most fans would take that after last year. They will be very good.

Exactly x1000000. What am I do? use prior stats for that? Some people on this site can be so stupid.

YES. This is what the rest of PSD doesn't seem to get with their "omg good luck being the Atlanta Hawks of the East" Would we rather be lottery team year in and year out or a good playoff team? The Nets fanbase has been waiting for a decent team for a long 6-7 years and Billy King provided.

What? If I'm not mistaken they were down against the Pacers and Celtics. Yes, I think the heat are the best team in the NBA but you are far from saying that "every other team in the NBA" needs Dwight Howard to beat them. They are damn good of a team but they aren't THAT good. Any team can get beaten if their opponent is hot enough at the right time - why upsets are the best part of sports.

Lol. I don't disagree.

However, Kris Humphries is not one of those "idiotic salaries." The Nets gave Humphries a slight overpay annually -- taking everything into consideration, I'd say his value is somewhere around $9 million a year -- but they did so for two reasons: (1) to limit the duration of the contract to two years (rather than three) -- thereby creating a tradable asset that could be used for Dwight Howard (read THIS (http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/47923/to-make-sense-of-nets-deal-look-south)) or another deal in the near future; and (2) to make up for the fact that they dangled Humphries in trade talks for the first two weeks of the off-season.

People who think this is a bad signing are displaying their inability to effectively analyze the entirety of the Nets' situation. In other words, they're simpletons.

Agreed. I was reading Hollingers article stating that now BKN has the ability to absorb a ton of the Magic's bad contracts as well as providing them with Lopez and Brooks (and picks). So this makes sense for that reason. If they don't get Howard, they are out of this contract in 2 years.

Kris got paid. He wanted long term security but this will do. That's three year's worth of pay in two. I think the Nets are banking on him improving defensively or using his expiring next summer to get an overpaid PF (looking at you Boozer).

Thats what I make of it too, I guess sometimes your better off having an expiring contract sooner but still, thats a 3 year deal kind of money.
