The NBA power forward has reportedly been taken out of the New Jersey Nets’ rotation by interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, according to ESPN. In short: he’s benched.
That must be rough news for Kris, who is already having a tough time in his personal life. He’s still fighting to prove that his ex Kim Kardashian married him as a publicity stunt, their divorce trial begins on May 6, and he’s been dropped by one divorce lawyer. And, of course, Kim is having a baby with her new boyfriend, Kanye West.
Kris signed a two-year, $24 million contract just last July. He has averaged 5.9 rebounds and 5.5 points per game playing an average of 18.4 minutes this season, but apparently that number has gotten lower and lower since the beginning of this year.
Tough break, Kris! We really do things start going your way soon. On the plus side, does this mean you won’t have to worry about missing the playoffs to attend your divorce trial?
