Jan Vesely's Girlfriend Is Eva Kodouskova, And She Also Plays Basketball

UPDATE: Correction appended on her name; it was originally written as Eva Viteckova.

For all those who are desperately searching to find more information on Jan Vesely's girlfriend after the little smooch the new Washington Wizards' draft pick gave on live TV upon being picked, Vesely himself cleared up a few things about her in an interview with Washington D.C. media.

↵

She is Eva Kodouskova, and she is also a basketball player. She's 6'3'' and has also played for the Czech national team. In fact, Vesely said they ended up meeting "on the court," which I imagine means while they were traveling and playing basketball. When asked if she was any good, Vesely was pretty coy.

"She's good," he joked. "So-so. She's OK."

↵

As for the kiss itself, Vesely didn't see what the big deal was.

"It's my girfriend. It was a big moment for me and for her for my family, so I don't know. It was just casual, so I don't know what to say."
