An NBA player who was called out by his playmate girlfriend on Instagram for allegedly cheating on her, has now become engaged. Utah Jazz center, Jeff Withey, 26, sealed the deal with Kennedy Summers with a massive diamond ring. The basketball player, who earns a million dollars a year shooting hoops, was caught out last month after Kennedy noticed that her boyfriend had bought two tickets for the movies, despite claiming he was going alone.
Utah only has 1-3 roster spots open — depending on if it picks up contracts for Shelvin Mack, Jeff Withey and Chris Johnson — although that figures to change with the team’s need to thin out that packed point guard platoon. The most likely scenario would seem to be trading away Trey Burke, Shelvin Mack and/or Raul Neto. Utah has plenty of money to use for a free-agent shopping spree, depending on what level of player it goes after. With Hill, the team’s guaranteed salary for next year is $64.6 million. Throw in an additional $4.5 million with the contracts of Mack, Withey and Johnson, and the Jazz are still well below 2016-17’s projected salary floor of $84.6 million and far below the $94 million salary cap and $113 million tax level.

“The coaches here are amazing,” he told Basketball Insiders. “They give you a lot of confidence.” The contrast was stark to his previous home. “In New Orleans, it was a tough place for me, just because the coach [Monty Williams], he didn’t really give me a shot, you know what I mean? Even if I was playing, if I screwed up one time or anything like that, he would just take me right out. Here, Coach [Snyder], he’ll come to you… it’s just a different type of coaching. More player-friendly, for sure.”
