NEW YORK (AP) -- The Brooklyn Nets continued their offseason barrage of signings Tuesday, agreeing to a new, two-year deal withformer Minnesota Golden GopherKris Humphries. Humphries spent just one season at the University of Minnesota, averaging 21.7 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, en route to earning Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors in 2004. Humphries, 27, averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds for the Nets last season, and has averaged a double-double in back-to-back seasons: 2010-11 and 2011-12. Last season's effort came on a one-year deal and for a bad team. Then still in New Jersey, the Nets went 22-44. But Humphries, who will make 24 million over the life of the contract, will now be part of a new-look group in Brooklyn that includes guards Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, center Brook Lopez, and forward Gerald Wallace, who all either decided to re-sign with the Nets this month, or in the case of Johnson, accept a trade from Atlanta to Brooklyn. "Kris has been a very consistent player for us over the past two years," Nets general manager Billy King said. "He has developed into one of the top rebounding forwards in the league, and we are very pleased to welcome him back." Humphries was married to reality television star Kim Kardashian for a brief time. The Nets also this month added some depth, signing veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse to a one-year, 1.4 million deal, and forward Mirza Teletovic to a three-year, 9.8 million contract. They also acquired forward Reggie Evans in a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, and signed backup point guard C.J. Watson. The Nets have missed the playoffs the past five seasons, the last two as temporary tenants at the Prudential Center in Newark while the move to Brooklyn was finalized. On Wednesday, the Nets will hold another press conference, this one for Lopez, who re-signed last week.
