With the NBA trade deadline now closed, Isaiah Hartenstein finds himself a new home in Cleveland Cavaliers. The former Houston and Denver player is headed to Ohio and bringing his off-the-court personality along. Also probably making an appearance at the arena might be his model girlfriend, which we are getting into more detail here.
Isaiah Hartenstein was born on 5 May 1998 to his German father Florian Hartenstein and American mother in Eugene, Oregon. Florian was a professional basketball player and the family moved to Germany when Isaiah was eight years old, moving back to the US only eight years later as a teenager.
A product of the European basketball scene, Isaiah Hartenstein honed his talents playing in various youth leagues in Germany. In 2016 he played in NBA organized international events and soon declared for the 2017 NBA draft. Four years later he is a bench player in Cleveland and dating an extremely beautiful girlfriend.

The four-year NBA player has now played in the G-league, two big teams, and headed to a former champion. In a short span, the player has had an eventful career but with Cleveland, he should be at home. But how will that impact his relationship with his girlfriend is yet to be seen.
Isaiah Hartenstein may look like a mild-mannered player who does what he is told. But those who have seen his girlfriend won’t mistake him for anything other than a shrewd playa. The lanky center for Cleveland Cavaliers is dating an extremely beautiful model and it is not a recent romance also.
The 7-foot tall player is dating his girlfriend Kourtney Kellar and they have been together for more than two years. The very first Instagram post by Isaiah Hartenstein was a picture of the duo sitting on a couch. The picture was uploaded on 14 February 2020 and the lovebirds were celebrating their one-year anniversary.
Isaiah’s girlfriend Kourtney Kellar is a 2017 Miss Texas International. She was also the smile on Lays packet during their Smile with Lays Campaign. Born on 8 March 1991, she is seven years older than her boyfriend. The model also shared a photo of the couple, one day after Valentine’s Day, acknowledging one year of their relationship.
There is an abundance of loved-up pictures of the duo but more recently Isaiah thanked his girlfriend during their 2nd anniversary. In a sweet Instagram post, he wrote, “Happy Valentines to everyone and especially @kourtney_kellar thanks for sticking by my side through the ups and downs Love you.”
And on the occasion of her birthday, Kourtney came in with some height jokes. She joked, “I’d say you’re my better half, but you’re more like 1 1/2 😏 Thank you for filling my birthday weekend with all the laughs & surprises. I love you @ipjh55 ❤️.”
Isaiah is an NBA center so he is 7 feet tall while his lingerie model girlfriend is only 5 feet and 7 inches tall. That is a 1 foot and 5 inches difference between the duo which makes for a funny picture when they are both standing. But what is height or weight or anything else when two people love each other so much?
Isaiah Hartenstein is a Cleveland Cavaliers Player – Trade between Cleveland and Denver Nuggets
Denver Nuggets were the dark horse for the last NBA season. In the playoffs, they got rid of Clippers in seven games but LeBron and AD were too big a mountain to climb for Murray and Jokic. And the bosses of Nuggets feel like their championship window is still open which is why they have splurged on the NBA tradeline day.
With Aaron Gordon joining Murray and Jokic for another scoring option, Denver also decided to bring in a proven rim protector. JaVale McGee was in the Lakers team that trounced the Nuggets last season and this year he is on their side trying to make another championship run.
As a consequence of Denver’s dealing Isaiah Hartenstein was shipped to Cleveland, along with two second-round picks for McGee. While it is not ideal for a player to play for four different teams in four years, Isaiah now has a chance to try and force himself into the starting lineup.
With few good performances, someone will come calling as there is a shortage of big men who can block shots and efficiently get buckets on the other end of the court. Both things Isaiah can do, he just has to prove it over a large sample size of games to turn heads.
