The Kardashian and Jenner clan has made its way through the NBA ranks. 22-year old Kendall Jenner has reportedly dated a few NBA players in the last few years. Now, she is reportedly with another: Philadelphia 76ers superstar Ben Simmons.

Simmons is coming off of an excellent rookie campaign, which will likely net him the Rookie of the Year award. After missing last season with injury, he was a key cog in the Sixers' surprise NBA Playoffs run. Some believe Simmons is already one of the 20-or-so best players in the league.

The 6-foot-10 point guard played in 81 of 82 regular season games, leading the team to a long winning streak without fellow Sixers star Joel Embiid. He averaged 15.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 8.2 assists per game, and upped many of those numbers during the post-season.

Now, according to Page Six, he is the latest NBA star to find his way under the Kardashian/Jenner umbrella. From the report:

An insider familiar with the duo said the romance has been going on “for a few weeks.”

Another source told us the pair was spotted this week on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And a third source said that Jenner, 22, and Simmons, 21, were seen last week in Manhattan with a group of friends at the clubby Bowery restaurant Vandal.

“Security measures seemed to have been taken to ensure Kendall and Ben enjoyed their night hassle free,” said a witness. “They were smiling the night away with their friends.”

Just a few months ago, Simmons began dating singer Tinashe. The two split up recently.

Kendall Jenner has been connected to a few NBA players before Ben Simmons.

Most recently, she reportedly dated former Los Angeles Clippers and current Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin. She also "casually dated" Jordan Clarkson, a former Laker who was traded to the Cavaliers this season.

Based on the infamous "Kardashian Curse," this is definitely not the news that Sixers fans want after such a promising season. Of course, given The Ringer's crazy expose about general manager Bryan Colangelo's alleged Twitter activity, they have more pressing issues.
