D'Angelo Russell is the best young player in the NBA ... as in playa, playa, play on playa, 'cause the dude's got a brand new lady love, and she's absolutely surface-of-the-sun hot.
The Lakers star is dating 25-year-old Janay Bankston, an ex-volleyball player at Cal State Stanislaus ... did we mention she's beautiful?
You might remember DLo's former gf Nicki Withers was also a college volleyball player, so dude's definitely got a type.
As for Russell and Bankston, they were first seen together at the "War Dogs" premiere in LA back in August ... and their relationship seems to be, really, really good ... unlike that movie.
