Kysre Gondrezick has a younger brother named Grant Gondrezick II, who is almost 7 years younger than her.
Coming from a family with a basketball background, the brother-sister duo couldn’t deviate away from the family lineage.
However, this doesn’t mean they were forced to play the sport. Their parents were very supportive of their career choice, which is evident as the eldest Gondrezick sibling is a licensed Esthetician.
On the other hand, Kysre pursued a career in basketball, and her younger brother is also a promising collegiate athlete who is bound to play in the NBA.
Kysre Rae Gondrezick, born July 27, 1997, is an American professional basketball player who last played for the Chicago Sky of the WNBA.
The 5-foot-9 guard attended Benton Harbor High School and was named 2016 Michigan Miss Basketball and Michigan Gatorade POY.
After high school, she committed to play at the University of Michigan but later transferred to West Virginia just after a season.
Following her collegiate career, Gondrezick entered the WNBA draft, and the Indiana Fever selected her as the 4th overall pick of the 2021 draft.
However, on January 18, 2022, she was waived by the Fever. Later, she joined the Chicago Sky for the 2022 training camp but was again waived on May 4.
The former WNBA player made the headlines after her boyfriend, Kevin Porter Jr., allegedly assaulted her.
