Cannady, who most recently played for the Orlando Magic during the 2020-2021 season, has been publicly supportive of long-time partner Samuelson, posting an encouraging message to his Instagram after Samuelson was unable to join the USA 3×3 basketball team for the Tokyo Olympics after testing positive for COVID-19.
“I’m proud of the person you are and I know you’ll be back stronger than ever when this opportunity presents itself again in 3 years,” wrote Cannady.
Samuelson’s engagement adds to an already eventful off-season with the 24-year-old reportedly traded from the Seattle Storm to the Los Angeles Sparks.

The Sparks will be Samuelson’s fourth team in as many seasons after being selected fourth overall by the Chicago Sky in the 2019 WNBA Draft. The Forward was then traded to Dallas before landing in Seattle for the 2021 season.
Samuelson finished the Storm’s 2021 campaign averaging 7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game.
