Alex Caruso is having himself a week.
The former Laker went public with his relationship with Mia Amabile not long before signing four-year, $37 million deal with the Bulls on Monday.
Before free agency began, the 27-year-old took to his Instagram story to share a photo with Amabile, who is believed to be an Instagram model from Los Angeles. Amabile followed suit, sharing a cozy photo of the couple in Avalon, N.J.
“He’s a Jersey Shore boy,” Amabile wrote over the photo that showed her posing with Caruso in front of a sunset.
It’s unclear when or how the pair met, as well as when they began dating.
When Caruso’s deal with the Bulls was official, Amabile shared a boomerang video of the Texas A&M product flexing on the beach in a bucket hat. She added an animated Chicago Bulls symbol with the caption, “Let’s goooo.”
Fans were curious about Caruso and Amabile in the weeks leading up to the couple going Instagram official. He had been leaving flirty comments under her photos, and dropping hints the two were an item.
Caruso was a fan favorite as a Laker, averaging 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game last season, while shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 40.1 percent from beyond the arc.
He’ll reunite with his former Lakers teammate, Lonzo Ball, who agreed to a four-year, $85 million deal with the Bulls on Monday as part of a sign-and-trade agreement with the Pelicans.
