Isaiah Hartenstein made a big decision to join the Oklahoma City Thunder instead of returning to the New York Knicks. The Thunder’s general manager, Sam Presti, revealed that the 26-year-old center signed a three-year contract worth $87 million with the team. This news came shortly after Isaiah and his wife, Kourtney Kellar, welcomed a baby boy into their family.

The couple received a warm welcome from the Thunder organization when they arrived at the Paycom Center. Kourtney expressed her gratitude on social media, sharing photos and videos of the thoughtful gestures made by the team to make them feel at home. She mentioned that she was excited to be a part of the Thunder family.

Isaiah and Kourtney got married in California in 2023 and announced their pregnancy earlier this year. Their special welcome at the Thunder’s home arena was attended by Hartenstein’s parents and sister, adding to the joyous occasion.

Kourtney also posted pictures from their journey to Oklahoma City, including images of a private jet and a balloon display that greeted them with a “Welcome Hartensteins” message. It was clear that the couple was touched by the warm reception they received from their new team.

During his time with the Knicks, Isaiah Hartenstein played in every game of the 2022-23 season and most games in the following year. He had a significant role in the team, starting in nearly half of the games and averaging solid numbers in points and rebounds.

Looking ahead, the Thunder are expected to have a successful season after securing the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs last year with 57 wins. Fans are eager to see how Isaiah Hartenstein will contribute to the team’s continued success on the court.

Overall, Isaiah and Kourtney’s journey to Oklahoma City has been filled with excitement and warmth, setting the stage for a new chapter in their lives both on and off the basketball court.
