Entrepreneur and “The Kardashians” star Kris Jenner revealed on a new episode of the family’s Hulu show that in January, she stepped in to help former NBA player Tristan Thompson get a job at ESPN — by contacting the network herself.

“I was able to reach out to ABC/Disney and really express how talented I thought Tristan was,” Jenner said during the episode. “And how they would really benefit from him being a part of the ESPN team.”

Thompson made several appearances on “NBA Today” and “First Take” on the sports network earlier this year.

Thompson, shares daughter True (5) and son Tatum (1) with Jenner’s daughter, Khloe Kardashian.

Thompson eventually put the media gig to the side after rejoining the Los Angeles Lakers for the playoffs last season, which led to a new contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2023-2024 season.

“Everything’s been great. You know, ESPN, obviously, I appreciate you, helping make this all happen,” Thompson told Jenner during the show.

“This is a dream. The fact that we could have that call on Friday and they asked if you could start on Monday, that never happens to anyone,” Jenner told the NBA star.
