Kim Kardashian is reportedly scheduled to meet with New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin, with the hope of building a romantic relationship.

A source close to the reality TV personality claims that she is interested in getting to know 23-year-old Lin, who recently made history as the second highest scoring player over a period of four game starts, according to MediaTO.

"She thinks [Jeremy] is cute, and she's good friend's with [Knicks player Carmelo Anthony's wife] Lala. It's going to be a double date," a source told MTO.

Kardashian, 31, received widespread backlash for abruptly ending her 72-day marriage to New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries in October, and although their divorce is yet to be finalized the socialite is allegedly ready to move on and has not ruled out getting married for a third time.

While it is unclear just how serious Kardashian is about the Knicks point guard, she has made it clear that she has no plans to film her next wedding, after filming her lavish nuptials to Humphries.

"If you were to ask me now, that's not what I want ... I would just want it to be so special, with our family and close friends, and that's it. Somewhere on a deserted island, very private. No cameras," Kardashian told Allure Magazine.

While Kardashian's intentions are said to be genuine for Lin, critics have accused her of simply trying to rehash her tarnished image.

Lin adoration, dubbed "Linsanity" by Knicks fans, has become an global phenomenon in recent weeks after his skills helped his team win its seventh game straight following a series of losses, and critics have taken to Twitter to express their concern that Kardashian may be trying to bask in his limelight.

"This chick is well beyond ridiculous. RT @BlkSportsOnline: BSO: Kim Kardashian Wants a Date With Jeremy Lin," Mellie Kapowski tweeted.

"She tries to date everything that's popular now RT @BlkSportsOnline: BSO: Kim Kardashian Wants a Date With Jeremy Lin," Charles Penn tweeted.
