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. Per NBA insiders, he’s being brought on to add depth to their bench — especially when it comes to big men.
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…
It sounds like he’s going to get significant playing time too … considering he’s a vet and his history with LBJ in the playoffs — not to mention that a good amount of current Lakers starters are plagued with injuries right now. Point guard Shaq Harrison is also signing.
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 are up against 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!
