King: Nets Close to Deal with Humphries
Much work remains to be done. The Nets need viable backups at point guard, center and small forward, and they need more rebounding and defense throughout the roster. They are working to re-sign Kris Humphries, their starting power forward, who appears likely to return after flirting with the Charlotte Bobcats.
General Manager Billy King said a deal with Humphries was “close,” but added, “It’s a process.” He also confirmed that the Nets were working on a deal with Jerry Stackhouse, the veteran guard.
