Cuban told EXTRA that he is  excited not only  about having the 6'11'' power forward from the Los Angeles Lakers, but also about having Kardashian in Dallas.

"You know, we had a 'team' meeting, and we all decided that Khloe is the official favorite Kardashian of the Dallas Mavericks," said Cuban to EXTRA. "She's welcome with open arms. We can't wait to have the whole family, can't wait to have Khloe and Lamar."

While Khloe tweeted after the news of the trade that she was "sad" and "a tad thrown off" by the news of the trade, Cuban said, "She is going to love it. The Mavs really make a point for all the players, when we bring somebody in, we really work with the families to make them feel comfortable."
