Is Brooklyn stupid, or did the Pistons get good deals?

I saw something last night on Kris Humphries' new contract and it made me think...

What do fellow Pistons fans think about this in comparison to Stuckey's and Prince's contracts?

Here are the contract details for each.

Kris Humphries

Reportedly: 2 years (2012-13 through 2013-14) for $24,000,000

Tayshaun Prince

4 years (2011-12 through 2014-15) for $28,000,000 ($6,292,135; $6,764,045; $7,235,955; $7,707,865)

Rodney Stuckey

3 years (2011-12 through 2013-14) for $25,500,000 ($8,500,000 each year, the last only guaranteed for $4,000,000)

Tayshaun Prince made his deal after a season of 14.1 PPG, 47.3% shooting, 70.2% FT%, 4.2 RPG, 2.8 ASP in 32.8 MPG after 9 years in the league. Prince has career averages of (including this past season) 12.9 PPG, 46% shooting, 76.5% FT%, 4.7 RPG, and 2.7 APG in 33.3 MPG.

Rodney Stuckey made his deal after a season of 15.5 PPG, 43.9% shooting, 86.6% FT%, 3.1 RPG and 5.2 APG in 31.2 MPG after 4 years in the league. Stuckey has career averages of (including this past season) 13.8 PPG, 42.4% shooting, 83.4% FT%, 3.1 RPG, and 4.4 APG in 29.7 MPG.

Kris Humphries made his deal after a season of 13.8 PPG, 48.1% shooting, 75.2% FT%, 11.0 RPG, 1.5 APG in 34.9 MPG after 9 years in the league (most of those career highs). Humphries has career averages of 6.7 PPG, 46.7% shooting, 65.7% FT%, 5.5 RPG and 0.7 APG in 17.8 MPG

Now, as with most players, it appears that his production increases with the time he gets to play. But when I look at the stats above, and comparing contract terms, it seems that the Pistons have two players tied up for longer for about the same amount of money who have produced more, and on a consistent basis, than Humphries has. Am I missing something about Humphries that I'm not aware of? Roughly $12,000,000 a year for an average PF.

Now, I will take into consideration cost of living in the area, the location of the team, and owners, but even still. It seems like the Nets are just throwing money around like it's sand.

I know many Pistons fans would love to get rid of Stuckey and/or Prince in an attempt to get better talent, but please keep in mind both Stuckey and Prince are still serviceable and average talents in the NBA.
