The Los Angeles Lakers’ prized rookie point guard, selected with the second overall pick in last June’s NBA Draft, reportedly is dating Kendall Jenner, the second-youngest sister in the Kardashian clan, according to MediaTakeOut.com.
Jenner, who turns 20 on Tuesday, and Russell, 19, reportedly met over the summer but “only recently began dating.”
The model was seated courtside at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday for the Purple and Gold’s matchup with the Dallas Mavericks. It’s worth noting Jenner was previously linked to Mavs forward Chandler Parsons, who also played in Sunday’s game.
Jenner’s older sister, Khloe, is married to former Laker and Maverick Lamar Odom, but the two have been estranged for some time. Odom recently was found unconscious in a Las Vegas-area brothel and was hospitalized in a coma for several days before waking up.
