Kelsey Plum and Darren Waller barely enjoyed a week as newlyweds before the NFL star was traded to the New York Giants.
Waller, 30, was acquired by the New York team after spending five seasons with the Raiders in Las Vegas, where his new wife plays basketball with the Aces.
After the news of the trade broke, former NFL star Robert Griffin III tweeted, "Darren Waller JUST GOT MARRIED to Kelsey Plum of the Las Vegas Aces and Josh McDaniels' wedding present was to trade him to the New York Giants. McDaniels is NOT a romantic."
Plum saw the viral tweet and jokingly suggested that Waller was traded because McDaniels — the Raiders head coach — didn't get to go to their nuptials. "Prolly cause he wasn't invited to the wedding lol," Plum tweeted.
