Nets Get OK To Attend Kris Humphries-Kim Kardashian Wedding

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The Nets can RSVP "yes" to Kim Kardashian's wedding.

A team official says the Nets have been granted permission to attend the E! reality star's marriage to forward Kris Humphries on Saturday in California.

General manager Billy King and other members of the Nets' basketball operations department are expected to attend the ceremony, the official told The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the guest list was to remain private.

With players and their teams not supposed to be in contact during the lockout, they must check with the league about events where they would be together. Weddings are among the special cases the NBA has allowed, such as when Heat All-Star Chris Bosh got married earlier this summer.

Nets coach Avery Johnson told CBSNewYork in June that Kardashian won't distract Humphries, who is set to become a free agent once the lockout is resolved, from his on-court duties.

"Kris is a focused young man and we know he's real passionate about the game of basketball," Johnson said. "The life that he's leading right now, that's just a part of this new social media, that's just a part of his lifestyle."
