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.
