WNBA star Kelsey Plum and NFL tight end Darren Waller tied the knot earlier this month. But the couple’s lives changed quickly when Waller was traded to the New York Giants.
The trade meant that Waller would have to move across the country. He had spent the last three seasons with the Raiders before being traded to New York.
After news of the trade broke, former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III tweeted: «Darren Waller JUST MARRIED Kelsey Plum of the Las Vegas Aces and Josh McDaniels wedding gift was to trade him to the New York Giants. McDaniels is NOT a romantic.»

Plum noticed Griffin’s tweet and jokingly suggested that her husband was traded because Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels didn’t get a chance to attend the couple’s wedding ceremony.

«Probably because he wasn’t invited to the wedding lol,» Plum tweeted.
But on Wednesday, Plum tried to downplay her comment by saying, «That was a joke people LOL.» Plum, who plays for the Las Vegas Aces, expressed his admiration for the city in which he plays.
«I love Las Vegas, I’m here to defend the title. I’ll put my phone down now,» he wrote with two emojis.
The star athletes tied the knot on March 4 in a private ceremony. Plum shared several photos from the wedding on Instagram.
Waller was reportedly upset with McDaniels after the Las Vegas Review-Journal announced the couple’s wedding date. Neither Waller nor Plum had publicly disclosed their marriage plans.
Two weeks ago, McDaniels expressed interest in keeping Waller in Las Vegas, saying the tight end «will be a big part of what we do going forward.» But, an NFL Network report revealed that the team had been searching for a business partner for over a year.
On the court, Plum helped the Aces win the WNBA title last season. She was also named the All-Star Game MVP and won a gold medal with Team USA at the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
