After conflicting reports Thursday afternoon on the fate of Kris Humphries, Marc Stein reports the Nets and Bobcats are in "a bidding war" for the power forward.

Stein reports the Nets are offering $24 million over three years, the Bobcats two million less.

It's the first time the Nets are reported to have interest in signing Hump for himself rather than offering him up in sign-and-trades to facilitate other moves.

Thursday afternoon, news of Charlotte's interest in Humphries began to spread with Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer suggesting the Nets are talking about a sign-and-trade, John Hollinger theorizing it was about getting a trade exception for Antawn Jamison and David Aldridge contending the Nets want him back.

Stein then reported on the bidding war.
