Memphis Grizzlies player Ja Morant’s personal life has been quite in talk of having a daughter at such a young age. However, while talking about his family, the Memphis star has someone in the same field as him. Born on February 16, 2005, in Dalzell, South Carolina, is Ja Morant’s sister Teniya Morant.
The 18-year-old Teniya, growing up with his brother was coached by their father Tee Morant, a former basketball player for the Memphis Grizzlies.
However, he was more occupied with Ja’s career and was close to his draft. Teniya on the other hand left often ignored and not looked after much. But she was quite close with his brother. On Valentine’s Day 2022, Ja gifted her a white Jeep Wrangler that she always wanted.
Like his brother, Teniya is emerging to become a great player one day. She is continuing with the legacy that his parents started and is currently running by his brother. Teniya’s father Tee Morant played basketball for Claflin University, and her mother Jamie Morant was a point guard in high school.
However, let’s take a look into the basketball career of Ja Morant’a sister Teniya Morant.
Which team does Teniya Morant play for?
While growing up and playing with his brother in the backyard, her basketball career started at Hillcrest Middle School in Dalzell. Following this, she moved to Houston High School in Germantown, Tennessee. She is currently in her senior year.
Standing 5 feet 7 inches, her playing career in high school has been quite highlighted in social media. A video on Twitter was viral showing off Teniya’s dominant gameplay in the match

Thus, Teniya scored 20 points and 10 rebounds leading Houston’s 65–51 win over Arlington High School on January 24, 2023. Apart from this, Teniya has also competed against the boys in open gyms at Houston High School.
However, Teniya Morant like his brother who is a professional basketball player in NBA wants to be a WNBA professional player. Her personal life has been quite a mystery yet. Thus, it would be great to see what she does in the coming years in her college. Will she be as great as her brother or will her career take off to something different?
