The low-key stature of the NBA star Chet Holmgren regarding his relationship makes fans wonder if he has a girlfriend.
Even if the Oklahoma City Thunder player has yet to confirm if he is dating, he is not free from rumors.

An alum of Gonzaga University, Holmgren missed the entire 2022-23 season due to a Lisfranc injury in his foot.
On October 25, 2023, he earned his NBA debut in the 2023-24 season, scoring 11 points in a 124-104 win over the Bulls.
His career-high 36 points came on November 18 in a 130-123 win over the Warriors. Also, it included 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks, and two three-pointers.
With that feat, he joined Michael Jordan as the only rookie in NBA history to do so.
Currently, he is on a four-year $44.89 million contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
