10:04 PM PT --
Kris just posted a tweet that totally mocks Kanye West ... saying, "I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ 'lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team' lol!"

The tweet is an obvious reference to the diss-track Kanye released ... in which he trashed Kris and bragged that he could have his BFF Jay-Z fire Kris whenever he wanted.

Kris Humphries
doesn't need Kim Kardashian to make a living ... 'cause dude just signed a $24 MILLION contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

It's a 2-year deal according to ESPN ... which means Kris got one helluva raise -- his previous contract was a 1-year deal worth $8 mil.

Not bad ... considering the Nets are partially owned by Jay Z ... who's best friends with Kanye West ... who's still banging Kris' estranged wife.

Kanye also recently bragged that he could have J fire Kris whenever he wants.

Sounds like a perfectly healthy work environment.

That's a great move for KH, not so much for the Brooklyn Nets. Congrats on the big payday though.

TMZ you need to leave this crap alone. This DB is not worthy of any news what's so ever. FYI you're the only one making this guy relevant.

LMAO at the Net's stupidity for this contract. The fans are freaking out. Does this mean he will finally stop being a b**** about the divorce & sign the papers?
