Kim Kardashian's ex-husband is 24M richer

From Comcast SportsNet
NEW YORK. (AP) -- The Brooklyn Nets continued their offseason barrage of signings Tuesday, agreeing to a new, two-year deal with power forward Kris Humphries. 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.

With Ravens winning, T-shirt look fits John Harbaugh to a tee

With Ravens winning, T-shirt look fits John Harbaugh to a tee

The Ravens are unbeaten (3-0), including their last two victories with coach John Harbaugh wearing a gray T-shirt on the sidelines. The casual look has been good to Harbaugh, who had never worn a t-shirt on the sidelines until this season.

Does that mean Harbaugh will stick with the T-shirt look until the Ravens lose? Harbaugh said Monday that he wasn’t sure, because he was not superstitious.

“I’m superstitious about not being superstitious,” said Harbaugh. “I think it’s really important not to be superstitious.”

Harbaugh said that Ravens equipment manager Tommy Wood would have the gray T-shirt washed and ready if Harbaugh wanted to wear it for Sunday’s upcoming home game against the Raiders (2-1).

“He (Wood) said, ‘We’re saving this one,’’’ Harbaugh said. “So it will be laundered up and ready to go next week, I guess.”

If the Ravens keep winning, and the weather turns cold, Harbaugh knows wearing a T-shirt on the sidelines could be a problem. He laughed when asked if he would consider wearing a T-shirt Dec. 12 for the Ravens’ game at New England.

“I don’t like being cold,” Harbaugh said. “If that T-shirt can stretch and fit over a parka or something like that, then we might have a chance.”
