    It appears the Golden State Warriors have not been scared off by the Kardashians' commitment problems.

    The struggling Bay Area NBA franchise is reportedly interested in bringing one of the famed sisters to Oakland along with her equally struggling basketball playing husband.

    No, Kris Humphries is not coming to the Warriors -- although he is still a free agent looking for a home.

    Instead, respected Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson reports that Golden State is interested in bringing Lamar Odom, and by extension his wife Khloe Kardashian, to the Bay Area.

    Odom, who was recently ruled inactive for the rest of the season by the Dallas Mavericks, would fill a need for the Warriors.

    Golden State has four starters penciled in next season, including Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut.

    That means the team could use a small forward like Odom.

    But the former Los Angeles Lakers' star has struggled this season. His averages of 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 20.5 minutes in his 50-game stint in Dallas were all career lows.

    It is widely believed that Odom wants to return to the Lakers and that was part of why he struggled this season.

    Thompson says the Warriors most likely won't land Mr. Khloe Kardashian because he would have to take a pay cut to be here and he still wouldn't be in Los Angeles.
