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.
