Kris Humphries’ net worth in 2021 is $35 million. This is according to numerous outlets, including Celebrity Net Worth.

Humphries is a retired NBA player who laced up for eight teams throughout his career. He is also well-known for appearing in the hit reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. 

The 6’9” power forward was born in Minneapolis, MN, and was actually a competitive swimmer first before pursuing basketball. Not only was he a competitive swimmer, but he was also so good that he was breaking records across several events. His competition? Just two of the greatest American swimmers in history, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.

However, Humphries would quit competitive swimming at age 12 to pursue basketball instead, quickly emerging as an elite prospect. He would go on to lead Hopkins High School to its first state championship in 49 years, receiving McDonald’s All-American and Second Team All-USA honors as a senior in 2002.

After initially committing to NCAA powerhouse Duke, Humphries reconsidered and pledged to play at his hometown university. He was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and an Honorable Mention All-American at Minnesota. He set a single-game scoring school record of 36 points, while also setting the school record for most total points by a freshman with 629. He averaged conference-highs in scoring and rebounding with 21.7 and 10.1, respectively, in his first and only collegiate season.

Humphries declared for the NBA Draft after just one year with the Golden Gophers. He was selected by the Utah Jazz with the 14th overall pick of the 2003 draft, struggling to make an impact over his first two seasons as a professional. On June 8th, 2006, Humphries was traded to the Toronto Raptors. Following three innocuous seasons as a reserve with the Raptors, Humphries was traded to the Dallas Mavericks on July 9th, 2009, setting the stage for the best stretch of his career.

Less than three months into the 2009-10 season, Humphries was on the move again, traded from Dallas to the New Jersey Nets.

Humphries had a breakout year with the Nets, averaging 10.0 points and 10.4 rebounds per game, both career-highs at the time. It was also around this time that he became romantically involved with Kim Kardashian.

Humphries improved on his career-highs in 2010-11, averaging 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds to go along with 1.2 blocks per game. He also became a regular starter for the first time, starting 62 games for the Nets beside the likes of All-Star Deron Williams and future Nets all-time leading scorer Brook Lopez.

After four relatively good years with the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets, Humphries was involved in one of the most infamous trades in modern league history. Along with three other players and three future first-round picks, Humphries was traded to the Boston Celtics in exchange for aging stars Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry. This trade has gone down as one of the most lopsided trades in the history of the league, with Boston benefitting massively from that trio of unprotected first-round picks.

As for Humphries, he would switch teams again after just one season, this time via a sign-and-trade that sent him to the Washington Wizards. A fun fact: Humphries hit 23 three-pointers over his one-and-a-half seasons with the Wizards after going almost a decade without making a single three.

On February 8th, 2016, Humphries—plus a protected first-round pick—was shipped to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Markieff Morris. Despite a promising debut performance in which he put up 18 points and 12 rebounds off the bench, Humphries was bought out by the team after just four games.

His last stop in the NBA came with the Atlanta Hawks, Humphries’ team for two seasons before he retired in 2019. He averaged 6.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists throughout his career in 17.8 minutes per game.

Humphries’ best days playing basketball came with the Nets from 2010 to 2013, the same time his fame rose to new heights due to off-court activities. In October 2010, Humphries began dating TV personality and socialite Kim Kardashian, most well-known at the time for her and her family’s reality TV show

Humphries was a prominent figure in the show. His name got even more traction when he and Kim decided to get married in 2011, for which a two-part special was aired. However, the marriage lasted all but 72 days after Kardashian filed for divorce. In response, Humphries tried for an annulment on the grounds of fraud. A lengthy legal dispute ensued, finally reaching its end in June 2013 when Kardashian and Humphries reached and finalized an amicable divorce settlement.

It’s safe to say that Humphries had an eventful 2010-11, on and off the court. Unfortunately, he has mentioned that the controversies with the Kardashians affected him severely in his playing days.

After his retirement from the NBA, Humphries became a Five Guys franchisee operating in Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as a real estate agent. He is now worth $35 million due to his playing career and business ventures.
