Tobias Harris and wife Jasmine met on blind date

Tobias Harris has tied the knot with long-term girlfriend Jasmine Winton. Being married to an NBA star has seen inevitable interest in the couple rise online. However, Jasmine Winton largely keeps out of the spotlight.

La Jolla Light reports the couple met on a blind date when he was playing for the Detroit Pistons between 2016 and 2018. They have a home in San Diego, having fallen in love with the city together. This is why Harris chose to propose to Jasmine Winton in La Jolla. He reportedly had plans to propose on vacation, but these were dashed by the outbreak of covid-19.

Tobias Harris finally popped the question on November 15, 2020. Check out the romantic proposal Harris organised on a beach in La Jolla:

On August 6, 2022, Tobias Harris announced he and Jasmine Winton were getting married. He announced in a Twitter post: “Today I get to marry my best friend!”

The 76ers forward was inundated with messages in support of their nuptials. As of publication date, the marriage announcement on Twitter has more than 55,000 likes.

But in describing Jasmine as his “best friend,” some fans joked they thought the tweet was about Tobias’ NBA best friend, Boban Marjanovic. Tobias Harris followed up with another tweet reading: “Just to clarify Boban Marjanovic and I are not getting married.”

Some fans are hoping this won’t be the only ring Tobias Harris wins, with hopes he can bring in a championship to Philly next season:

NBA stars show up to celebrate Tobias Harris’ wedding

Colleagues and ‘work friends’ are different in the world of basketball. For players in the NBA, many become friends outside the game. So, it comes as no surprise some of Tobias Harris’ NBA friends came to the wedding to share their support.

Among those confirmed in attendance was Nuggets big man DeAndre Jordan. Jordan shared a snap from the wedding to his Instagram Story on the special day.

One of Harris’ best basketball friends, Boban Marjanović, also shared a message of support on Instagram Stories, although it is unconfirmed whether he was in attendance.
