Tristan Thompson Now a Laker, Closer to Khloe Amid Apparent Rekindling
Tristan Thompson Signs with Lakers ... Closer to Khloe Amid Rekindling???

Tristan Thompson is signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, which means he'll be reteaming with LeBron -- but, also, he'll be much closer to Khloe Kardashian ... and that's significant.
The team made it official amid reports that TT had signed with them, taking to social media to announce he was, in fact, a Laker now as they head into the playoffs. Thompson will add depth and experience to their bench.
The Lakers are signing two players today to add depth for the postseason, sources told ESPN. L.A. will sign guard Shaq Harrison, a defensive-minded point guard, and Tristan Thompson, a veteran center with playoff experience on LeBron James’ teams in Cleveland. Both players…— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) April 9, 2023 @mcten
It sounds like he could get some playing time, too ... considering he's a vet and his history with LBJ in the playoffs, not to mention a good amount of current Lakers players are plagued with injuries. Point guard Shaq Harrison is also signing with LAL.
This is great news for Laker Nation, as their chances at a playoff run seemed slim just a few short weeks ago. Now, however, they have an actual shot ... assuming they can get through the play-in tournament -- which starts this week. Lakers will play the Timberwolves.
Of course, Tristan now being a Laker could be seen as good news for someone else ... and that'd be his baby mama, Khloe -- who'll probably see him a lot more heading into summer.
The dude's already here in L.A. a helluva lot as it stands -- remember, he and KK share 2 children together ... and they have been hanging quite a bit these past several months as they continue to co-parent. They were even at McDonald's in the same ride this past week.
Considering all the other signs of what sure looks to be a romantic rekindling ... something tells us Khloe might be pretty thrilled about Tristan's transfer to the west coast too.
At the very least, it'll make their jobs as mom and dad easier. Congrats!
