By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Kris Humphries was recently labeled as the least liked player in the NBA. But the New Jersey Nets still like him, no matter what Forbes reported.

He has agreed to a new contract with the Nets. His new contract is for one year, $8 million.

He can now focus on basketball after an crazy few months. Months ago, he got married to celebrity Kim Kardashian, which only lasted 72 days.

Kardashian has had Humphries head all over the place, as she has a pending divorce. But he’s trying to annul their marriage, as Kardashian refuses to give back his $2 million engagement ring.

But back to basketball, which he was able to return to last night. Last season, he averaged 10 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, as well as shooting 52.7% from the field.

“I’m excited to be back,” said Humphries. “It’s good to see the guys again. Although it’s a one-year deal, I’m happy and motivated. I think if you ask any player, they all would want a max contract with the longest terms. But I’m happy with the deal and glad to be back.”
