NBA star Tristan Thompson has agreed to join the Boston Celtics, his agent Rich Paul of Clutch Sports confirmed to Yahoo Sports on Saturday, November 21.
The outlet reports that the 29-year-old free agent, who played with the Cleveland Cavaliers for nine seasons, has a two-year, $ 19 million contract with the Celtics. The imminent move from the center to the East Coast comes after he reconciled with his ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian and spent several months in quarantine in Los Angeles with Khloe and her 2-year-old daughter, True Thompson.
Celtics fans reacted to the news on Twitter, unleashing their effusiveness and joy, messaging Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian on the matter.
When some wondered if this means that Khloe Kardashian will be seen on the court, others clarified that there are no spectators allowed at NBA games at this time due to the coronavirus pandemic. At the end of last season, players were left in a bubble of isolation at Walt Disney World in Florida, and the games were held behind closed doors.
