Utah Jazz Rumors
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.
The former Michigan point guard and Naismith Award winner was traded by the Utah Jazz earlier this month. He says his new destination — the Washington Wizards — is a welcome chance to jumpstart a career that seemed to stall as the 2015-16 season wound down. “It was definitely time for a reset,” Burke said. “A lot of the things that happened, I didn’t understand. Just to have an opportunity again, being able to play with an All-Star-caliber point guard in John Wall, I look at it as an opportunity to go deep in the playoffs and win games.”
There is a sense the Celtics would love to pry away Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward, who has a player option next year, which few in the NBA believe he’ll exercise meaning he’ll likely be an unrestricted free agent. There were rumors around the draft that Hayward would welcome a trade, but Jazz sources downplayed any reported unhappiness. Still, there is a real risk that Hayward could walk next July.
Jazz sources said it’s highly unlikely the team even considers a trade for Hayward, but that won’t stop the Celtics from checking the temperature there as teams head into the new NBA season in late September.
