The Nets spent plenty of money this summer -- almost too much -- filling out their roster after an unsuccessful bid to land Dwight Howard.

As what was called a "Plan B," the Nets handed over $60 million over four years to Brook Lopez, coming off what really was a missed season and followed that up by giving Kris Humphries $24 million over two years, as he was coming off a season in which he played 62 games, averaging 34 minutes, 13.8 points and 11 rebounds for the Nets.

The money, along with the years, almost seemed reasonable for a double-double machine like Hump, while Lopez received a hefty contract for a big man who played just five games the season prior and was struggling to grab more than six rebounds -- as a 7-footer -- over the previous two seasons.
