Both Howard Beck and Adrian Wojnarowski report that the Nets may bring back Kris Humphries if they fail in the pursuit of Dwight Howard and get outbid for Ersan Ilyasova's services. Meanwhile, changes in the Nets cap structure necessitated by the Joe Johnson trade have eliminated any chance the Nets could sign Jason Kidd after a five year absence. The Nets will now have to find a back-up point guard elsewhere.

"The Nets also intend to re-sign Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries, their last two significant free agents, and the last two players remaining from the 2010-11 season," wrote Beck. Woj noted, "If they can't make a deal [for Dwight Howard], they'll work re-sign free-agent center Brook Lopez and move to keep free-agent forward Kris Humphries, a league source said. The Nets also are still pursuing Milwaukee Bucks free-agent forward Ersan Ilyasova.

Ilyasova has offers from the Bucks, Raptors, Nets and a European team, said his agent. Kidd may now rejoin the Mavericks or the Knicks.
