Looks like Iman Shumpert will join the increasing list of NBA players with R&B boos. The New York Knicks guard is reportedly dating singer Elle Varner.

While neither have confirmed the rumors, both of them have shared various photos on several social networking sites, leading many to believe they are indeed more than friends. Varner, who’s debut album Perfectly Imperfect boasted the Grammy-nominated song “Refill,” added more fuel to the fire recently by posting a filtered-photo of two hands in the sand on her Instagram. Shumpert, 22, also uploaded a clip on his Vine account, with the caption “Found me a mermaid…and brought her to #Aruba.”

Varner, 23, shared candidly with VIBE Vixen her views on dating, late last year. “For me, dating is like a really different thing. I have to look at everybody and say, ‘Why are you here?’ It’s kind of messed up, but it’s true,” she said. “I know what it’s like on the other side. I’m literally meeting people that just completely overlooked me and now they think that they’re just meeting me for the first time…I’m warming up to it. I’m starting to feel more secure just as an artist and where I’m at, and now I think, ‘You might have time for a date.”
