Khloe Kardashian, the reality TV star has hooked up with Tristan Thompson, the role player from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The pair has not admitted that they are officially together but recent Lakers rumors and social media images have confirmed the brewing romance between the two.
Kardashian and Thompson were spotted at a Drake concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and there’s a video of the pair in a serious public display of affection.
The romantic relationship between the two leads to questions and Lakers rumors that the Thompson might want to play for Kardashian’s hometown team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
Currently, Thompson is one of the core players for the Cleveland Cavaliers that won the NBA title against the Golden state Warriors last June. It’s unlikely that a trade to Los Angeles will happen soon.
However, the Cavaliers are also one of the teams with the highest total salary in the upcoming season. There is a slight chance that they want to cut salary and trade someone like Thompson, who will be earning about $16 million per season until the 2020 season.
Here’s Thompson and Kardashian getting cozy with each other in a club:
Khloe Kardashian is still married to former NBA player Lamar Odom but her involvement with Thompson could mean that the marriage is on the rocks and on their way to a divorce.
Via ESPN’s Trade Checker, a Tristan Thompson deal to Los Angeles works in exchange for Jose Calderon, Lou Williams and Julius Randle.
The Thompson to Los Angeles Lakers rumors does not make sense for the young L.A. team, which is still in rebuilding mode with lots of project players in the roster. However, one of their primary weaknesses is the power forward position and Thompson can be a veteran leader with the Lakers if he’s traded to Los Angeles.
