Kris Humphries Re-Signs Deal With New Jersey Nets

December 21, 2011 05:30 AM by Megan Thompson

It looks like Kris Humphries is going to be employed again and it’s not with an E! reality show! Kris Humphries, who has had more play time on Kourtney and Kim Take New York than on the basketball court, is signing a deal with the New Jersey Nets. Keep reading for the latest scoop on Humphries’ deal.

It’s been a rocky year for the 26 year-old unemployed basketball player, Kris Humphries. Kris Humphries was relatively unknown until he married Kim Kardashian in a widely publicized and televised wedding spectacular. Then 72 days later, came the huge announcement that Kim Kardashian was filing for a divorce. Kris fired back and instead of a divorce he wanted to annul his short marriage to Kim.

Kris Humphries has been worried about his image as of recent, especially now that Kourtney and Kim Take New York is currently airing on E! Viewers watch as Kris and Kim’s relationship falls apart on TV. An unemployed Kris recently appeared on Good Morning America and avoided questions about his failed relationship. When asked a direct question about Kim, Kris answered, “Through everything I’ve just focused on family and preparing for basketball.”

It seems Kris’ focus on basketball has paid off. It’s being reported by The New York Post that Kris has inked an $8 million dollar deal with the New Jersey Nets. As soon as the deal is signed, Kris will join the team as early as Wednesday night in a preseason game.

Do you think Kris Humphries will focus solely on basketball and stay out of the limelight? Let us know what you think, leave a comment below.

    I think anyone who hitches their wagon to this reality show circus has their own self-aggrandizing agenda. He probably won’t receive the collateral attention he has been forever. Wait until that main K-sister finds her next victim. No one will remember this guys name after too long.

    Chris Humphries is a professional ball player that in an of itself makes him a celebrity. I cannot imagine the anger he feels when the news media refers to him as “Kim’s Ex”. Kim’s only claim to fame and celebrity is a story that proclaims “Kim K proves her booty is 100% natural.”. Yes Kim you are 100% booty. Can’t wait until you and your entire dysfunctional family fades as the Hilton’s have. Please just don’t take as long.

    Good going, Kris. You do not need anybody’s name attached to yours to be famous or successful. The experience you went thru in your marriage to K’s, have dealt a life lesson to you. Better luck next time.

    I think he had to love her to be willing to get involved with this train wreck of a family. Kim did him wrong and tried to make it look like it was his fault. She was suspicious and untrusting because maybe SHE was the one who shouldn’t have been trusted. None of the girls’ marriages will last.
