Prediction: Utah Jazz Forward Gordon Hayward Makes Team USA The Downbeat #1418

MyLo makes bold predictions. Gordon Hayward has been in the news a lot this summer whether it has been because of his OMG LOOK AT DAT CONTRACT DOE near max contract or his inclusion on the USA team before it makes its final cut.  Both have been overshadowed by his less than subpar 2013-2014 campaign as the go to player for the Utah Jazz.  Gordon Hayward has every right to be questioned as to whether he can live up to the billing of a near max player and if he can even be considered to be part of the final USA team.  So here am I, MyLo, making a bold prediction.  Hayward's contract...

Utah Jazz: Ex-Jazzman Paul Millsap endorses Quin Snyder

Las Vegas • Plenty of resources were available to Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward this summer, if he wanted to learn anything about new coach Quin Snyder. They made it easy for him. From former Butler teammate Shelvin Mack and ex-Jazz players Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll, Hayward has discovered a lot about Snyder and the Atlanta offense he helped run last season. “Honestly, I didn’t have to do that much research,” Hayward said. “I had so many players come up [who] were pissed that ...

Kragthorpe: Jazz’s Gordon Hayward insists there’s ‘no pressure now’

Las Vegas After everything that has happened since the Jazz’s season ended in April, Gordon Hayward recognizes his life is different now. The expectations and accountability that accompany his biggest offseason move follow him everywhere. Signing a $63 million contract? Yeah, that’s also significant. Haywood stood on UNLV’s practice court after the opening session of Team USA’s training camp Monday, talking with Jazz coach Quin Snyder. He smiled, laughed and cringed — knowing that accepting Sn...

Utah Jazz Downbeat #1417- More Team USA

As Amar mentioned yesterday, Jazz news is still showing up during this offseason. August usually starts the two month long lull until training camp convenes, but with Team USA prepping for FIBA World Cup action, we're getting news about Jazzman Gordon Hayward and former Jazzmen Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap. This is the back of Hayward's head: Coach K is all, "Hayward, please don't play Clash of Clans during orientation." He's sitting next to Korver (on his right) and I believe KD (on his left): So what are the chances Hayward makes the squad? NBA.com's John Schuhmann breaks down how he...

Dante Exum (and Jazz summer leaguer Brock Motum) have returned to Australia to prepare for the tournament. Center Rudy Gobert is back home in France.

NBA Free Agency 2014: Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks still need wingmen

I embrace going young, but balance is still needed. A number of years ago the Utah Jazz took a dip into the bottom half of the NBA Draft, two years in a row. They were able to get Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks. Both are good, young players with obvious talents. Sadly, the largest splash either of them have made came from Free Agency this year when Hayward became a Max player. Utah seems to have made another smart draft pick this past year with scooping up the overlooked Rodney Hood. When the season starts Hayward will be 24, Burks 23, and Hood 22. And you know what? They can't do it all...

Utah matches Charlotte's offer sheet as Jazz retain Gordon Hayward

The Jazz said they would match any offer an opposing team would make to Gordon Hayward and they did not lie. With about 36 hours still remaining on the clock before their decision had to be in before the deadline, Utah notified the Hornets that they would indeed match Charlotte's 4-year, $63 million offer sheet. It should come as no surprise that this happened, as such a result had been reported for months as Hayward's free agency future began to come into question. Though it seems somewhat foolish in the context of their contract extension negotiations last year. They had been unable to...
