A few more of you have written in regarding the identity of Lauren Conrad's newest accessory (boy), as our staff tries to determine if he is, in fact, former Duke University basketball standout and current Portland Trail Blazers forward Josh McRoberts.

It's looking more like it could be the case... but it's still a mystery.

See the picture of Josh McRoberts below (left), sent to The Hollywood Gossip exclusively below by a reader. Compare it to the recent photo (right) of Lauren Conrad from last week. The Hills star is holding hands with a mystery man - who many of you believe is McRoberts. There's definitely a resemblance... but we still can't say for sure.

Can any of you provide further proof? Does anyone out there know how (and if) he and Lauren Conrad are together? What's he doing in L.A.? Any info you can provide us is much appreciated! Leave a comment on this post or use our Contact Us form.

Yesterday, we brought you photos of Lauren Conrad and her new mystery man and asked for help in identifying this tall, handsome devil. A couple of you think you have done it.

Rumor has it that Lauren's newest "accessory" is Josh McRoberts, a former Duke basketball standout chosen by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 37th pick in the 2007 NBA Draft.

So far, photo evidence that Josh McRoberts is the fellow seen with LC is inconclusive. See the pictures below, of him playing Georgia Tech... and playing the field with our girl in L.A...

My, sports and celebrity gossip continue to intertwine. Although we're happy to be writing about a possible young romance for a change, and not the war or words / baby mama drama surrounding Matt Leinart and ex-girlfriend Brynn Cameron.

Or the disgrace to humanity that is Michael Vick.

Anyway. College basketball fans may recall that despite his stature and natural talent, the 6'10" McRoberts was often thought of as a soft player at Duke... Lauren Conrad robably hopes he isn't a soft player when it comes to her. If you know what we mean!

Fans, The Hollywood Gossip needs your help. How do you know for sure that this is Josh McRoberts? We're obviously curious. Leave a comment with the info you've got - and help our eager celebrity news reporters be the first to get The Hills scoop!
