Humphries went from E! to ESPN, averaging 11 rebounds per game in the 2011/2012 season that helped secure a lucrative two-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets worth $24 million. He also watched his wife of 72 blissful days -- and 15 miserable months -- become Kanye West's "Perfect Bitch" and ultimately carry Yeezy's baby.
But the proverbial ball's still in Humphries' court 'cause Kanye can't marry Kim until her divorce is final.
In the meantime, Kimye will have to settle for a non-binding "commitment ceremony" and promise rings.
West and Kardashian will exchange vows in Malibu during a private commitment ceremony attended by close friends and family, according to The Sun.
"Kanye is very traditional," a source recently told the paper. "He'd have liked to marry Kim now they are having a baby. But with Kim still married to someone else, there is not much he can do."
He can, however, put a ring on it.
"[The two] will still exchange rings, they just won't wear them on their wedding fingers," the source adds. "One of Kim's friends is lending them his £7million Malibu beach mansion and the entire bash will take place there. It'll be a lot more low-key than a wedding."

Yeezy's been 'bout that marriage life since June, shortly after the pair started dating.
"Kanye wants to marry Kim, and he's telling her to expedite the divorce so they can start their future," a source told Life & Style. "Kanye's like, 'Just do whatever you need to make it go away.'"
Attorneys for Humphries and Kardashian are hoping the marriage will "go away" next month. Divorce proceedings are scheduled to continue in February.
