Free agent Kris Humphries signed a one-year deal for $8 million to remain with the New Jersey Nets, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Humphries will be dressed for Wednesday’s preseason game against the New York Knicks, sources said. He took his physical in New Jersey Tuesday.

Humphries, a power forward, is most famous for his 72-day failed marriage to reality-TV star Kim Kardashian.

Humphries envisioned getting $10 million annually on a long-term contract, but that market clearly wasn’t available. The Nets have been careful about offering multiyear deals this offseason, choosing to keep salary-cap space available for the pursuit of possible free agent Dwight Howard next summer.

Humphries had his best NBA season for New Jersey a year ago, averaging 10 points and 10 rebounds. He became one of the best per-minute rebounders in the league.
