D'Angelo Russell is known as an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. He is most famous for snitching on the extra marital affairs of a teammate, Nick Young.
D'Angelo Danté Russell was born on February 23, 1996 in Louisville, Kentucky. His parents are Keisha Rowe and Antonio Russell. He went to Central High School in the place where he grew up for a year and then later moving to Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida. At Montverde, Russell started a strong partnership with future NBA player Ben Simmons as their group won consecutive High School National Tournament titles.
With the 2nd pick, the Los Angeles Lakers drafted D'Angelo Russell and signed him to a rookie scale contract. He was a part of the Magic Johnson's plan to revamp the group and Russell was thought to be the leader of the new generation. His performances in the first portion of the season earned him a spot in the Rising Stars Challenge and before the finish of the season, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
In July 2019, The Golden State Warriors figured out how to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves with a sign and trade deal that will send D'Angelo Russell to the Bay Area. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors and Brooklyn Nets made a sign and trade agreement that will convey Russell to Golden State on a four-year, $117 million arrangement. The sign and trade deal will include Golden State sending a protected future first-rounder to Brooklyn and re-directing Shabazz Napier, Treveon Graham and money to the Timberwolves.
D'Angelo Russell has been connected to various cuties throughout the years. His first prominent public relationship was with Niki Withers, a University of Southern California volleyball player who he dated during his time with the Lakers. The two eventually separated and following his exchange to Brooklyn, which was depicted as a stage down in his career, Ms. Withers stood out as truly newsworthy for posting "L O L" on Twitter which was dared to be directed at him.
Russel's next relationship was with another volleyball player, Janay Bankston, who went to California State University, Stanislaus. The couple was seen just once in open together when they went to the motion picture debut of War Dogs (2016). As of late, the point guard has been connected to Gabby Engersgaard who he has been spotted inside and around New York. Very little is known about her and of their relationship. The couple is said to keep things between them private.
