Cavaliers fans read this! Tristan says he will join Clippers 'in a heartbeat' if it makes girlfriend Khloe happy
The NBA Trade Deadline is scheduled for February 8.
Tristan Thompson is soon set to move to LA, given the fact that his girlfriend Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with child.
Although Tristan is currently signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, there have been some rumors claiming he may get traded to the LA Clippers.
“In a perfect world he would love to go to the Clippers or the Kings because he would be in California, and close to Khloe when she is out there, but they currently make it work while he is in Cleveland. So, if he were traded anywhere from Miami to Minnesota he knows that he would be able to make it work with Khloe,” a source close to Tristan told Hollywood Life.
“A different team and different location will not deter their relationship one bit. They are ride or die for each other and she will join him where ever he ends up going. But of course, would he want to go to LA? In a heartbeat,” the source continued.
It’s no secret that distance isn’t a problem for Khloe and Tristan. She was recently spotted at his basketball game in Cleveland on January 16. League sources told cleveland.com weeks ago that the Cavs would consider trading him to the Clippers as a part of a deal to bring DeAndre Jordan to Cleveland. Similar reports resurfaced Friday.
"It doesn't bother me at all," Thompson said. "At the end of the day, you only control what you can control. That's when coach calls me in the game, go out and play hard and compete. That business side, people get paid to do that stuff. I get paid to be out there on the court and compete and do my job. Guys get paid to make decisions and move pieces around.
"For me, seven years in the league and seeing guys get traded and just understanding the business of basketball, it doesn't faze me at all," he said. "I know what I need to do, just play and be myself."
We aren’t certain how soon the Cavaliers will make their decision, but the with the NBA Trade Deadline quickly approaching on February 8, we can assume it’ll be soon!
