News broke today that Kendall's been seeing a new National Basketball Association star for "a few weeks" now, Philadelphia 76ers player Ben Simmons. But if this Simmons-Jenner thing goes on past the offseason, the Sixers are in trouble. A source told the publication the two have been dating for "a few weeks".

The romance is still reportedly new, the couple having been spotted in L.A. and NY over the last couple of weeks.

According to Ian Mohr and Mara Siegler of Page Six, a source said they were seen on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel this week, and another said they were together at Vandal restaurant in Manhattan last week.

"They were smiling the night away with their friends", a source told Page Six.

Jenner is only recently moving on herself, having previously been linked with another National Basketball Association player in the form of Pistons' Blake Griffin.

News of Simmons' relationship with Jenner is the second-worst news for most Sixers fans this week.

Just when you thought there might be a good one in the Kardashian-Jenner family, it all comes back full circle and you realize nothing ever changes.

After landing in LAX Monday, Simmons briefly spoke to paparazzi - not about the relationship, but to echo a sentiment for which some Philadelphians are clamoring.

Fans in Philadelphia seem interested in acquiring the services of LeBron James, and it seems like the players wouldn't mind getting a chance on the court with King James, either. Some believe Simmons is already one of the 20-or-so best players in the league.
