SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles said he plans to maintain a simple lifestyle following the conclusion of his NBA career.

It is rare that Ingles venture’s away from his trusty on-court footwear of white Nikes. If color is included beyond the jersey, it will probably be a brightly colored pair of socks.

Ingles keeps it simple on and off the court and doesn’t anticipate that changing once his playing days are done. Though that doesn’t mean Ingles, in the final season of an extension signed in 2019, is eyeing anything beyond this season.

During the DJ & PK Show on The Zone Sports Network on December 21, 2021, Ingles stopped short of calling himself cheap but made it clear that he is doing fine.

“I drive a really old, used F-150, and I wear Jazz sweats and Chucks. My bank account is fine,” Ingles made clear when the conversation turned to his income sources post NBA career.”

Ingles even joked about what his fitness routine could look like after his playing days come to an end.

“I think it’ll get to a point where like, I enjoy a quiet beer every now and then.” Ingles continued, “I think it might get to the point where, I’ll see myself in the mirror and be like, ‘…oh, shoot…it’s time to figure this thing out.”

That time doesn’t appear to be coming anytime soon as the versatile player can be plugged into Quin Snyder’s starting lineup in place of anybody but Rudy Gobert.

With Mike Conley missing one game of most back-to-back’s this season, Ingles played some of his best basketball of the season. When Royce O’Neale missed a handful of games due to foot soreness, Joe played power forward as admirably as he had played point guard.

In 30 games this season, Ingles is averaging 7.7 points per game on 44 percent shooting from the field and 39.6 percent from beyond the arc, both his lowest since the 2015-16 season. He is also averaging 24.8 minutes per game, his fewest since 2016-17. All with the idea that when the Jazz need him most, in the playoffs, he’ll be more able to contribute than in years past if he has a lighter workload in the regular season.

Until the time for beer and donuts, with the occasional workout comes, Ingles continues to talk trash on an NBA floor near you.
