What is Tristan Thompson's net worth? NBA player signs two-year deal with Boston Celtics
The center and father of Khloe Kardashian's child has reportedly signed a two-year, $19 million contract with the Boston team
Free-agent Tristan Thompson has reached an agreement with the Boston Celtics, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The NBA insider posted the news on Twitter writing, “Free agent center Tristan Thompson has reached an agreement with the Boston Celtics, his agent @RichPaul4 of @KlutchSports tells Yahoo Sports."
The center and father of Khloe Kardashian's child has reportedly signed a two-year, $19 million contract with the Boston team. The Canadian basketball player has a net worth of $45 million as reported by Celebrity Net Worth. A former fourth-overall pick, Thompson spent the first nine seasons of his NBA career with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Toronto native has averaged 9.4 points and 8.7 rebounds per game throughout his career, including a personal-best 12 points per game last season, as reported by Sportsnet. Thompson figures to shore up the interior weaknesses of Boston's starting five, offering post-scoring and rebounding to a club that features perimeter stars like Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker. His addition to the Celtics comes just hours after former All-Star Gordon Hayward decided to leave the team in favor of joining the Charlotte Hornets.
Thompson spent the first four years of his career establishing himself as a crucial part of Cleveland’s rotation. All his hard work paid dividends for him in 2015, when he signed a huge extension with the Cavs. This came out to be $82 million for five years, which at that time, was criticized for being a tad overpriced by some experts.
Khloe and Thompson dated for 10 months before calling it off after he cheated on her with Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods in February. The following month, Woods appeared in an interview on Jada Pinkett Smith’s 'Red Table Talk' and said that she shared nothing more than a peck on the lips with Tristan as she left his house after a party in Los Angeles. “[There was] no passion, no nothing. He just kissed me. It was a kiss on the lips. No tongue… no making out,” the model explained.
As soon as the interview aired, a furious Khloe took to Twitter to call Jordyn out. “Why are you lying @jordynwoods? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story,” she tweeted. “BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
Hours later, however, she retracted her accusation and added in a different tweet that Thompson was the only one to blame for their breakup. “This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” she tweeted. “Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me wasn’t such a shock as the first time. What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”
