Jack Cooley RumorsAll NBA Players
Until then, Cooley will continue to work hard to keep earning a spot in the NBA. “I don’t think there will ever be a (time) when feel I like I’ve made it. There will never be a time when I’m content. I’ll always be working,” he said, pointing out how he’s continued working in Santa Barbara and Utah with Jazz coaches. “I’ll never be content. I know the alternative.”
Eventually, Cooley would like to combine his love of finances and hoops to become a financial advisor for guys in the NBA. “Mainly what I would like to do is help athletes invest money and avoid (bad financial) situations,” he said. “I know how hard all these athletes work, and to see how some of them don’t spend their money wisely just because they don’t have someone telling them (otherwise), I’d like to help them avoid that.” If they’re lucky, he’ll even help build a Girl Scout cookie allowance into their budget. Financial advisors who are born somewhere in Illinois at some point in April like to do things like that.
The Utah Jazz announced today that team has signed forward Jack Cooley to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, financial terms were not released. Cooley signed his most recent 10-day contract with the Jazz on March 16 and has appeared in six Jazz games, averaging 1.7 points in 4.3 minutes per contest.
