For the second time in a week, Kris Humphries has made it quite clear he wants to return to the Nets next season. The 6'9" power forward with the gaudy double-double numbers told Al Iannazzone Wednesday, as he told Fred Kerber Monday, that he is grateful for what the Nets have done for his career.
"You want to make the most money you can and have a great career and all those things," he said. "I want to be here. They've helped me get a lot better and rolled with me this year. It would be great to be back here. We're looking to do that."
Earlier in the week, he expressed similar feelings to Kerber, saying he believes the Nets can make the playoffs next season.
"That's kind of a goal, to really put ourselves in a position to carry momentum in and get guys who can help us move forward and go with it," he said. "Hopefully, we'll have our [key] guys back. I want to be back."
After the Knick game where he went for 15 and 14, Humphries is officially averaging a double double, 10.0 points and 10.4 rebounds, all in 28 minutes a game.
