Yep. There's a thread on it too that was posted earlier.

His wife also followed Hayward's wife LOL  :laugh:

No one player is going to win us a title, adding two elite players in Fultz and Hayward without giving up anything other than cap space is our best course

Yep, as well as Zizic.

Hypothetically, moving from #1 to #3 would clear approximately an extra 1.8M of cap space in the pursuit of Hayward (or Griffin). Just an FYI.

I hope the trade doesn't happen though LOL.

Well, it was nice rooting and hoping for you Hayward.

I think the other thread might be right.

If we add Tatum/Jackson and/or trade for Butler/George, it's CROWDED at the 2/3.

This trade does create some extra cap space but I think I read somewhere we are still about 200-300K short of a max.

"Insider: Around the NBA there is an expectation that Hayward will be a Celtic."

I still think Hayward is more than likely a Celtic, but seeing the larger plan with these current moves is a little blurry to me at the moment. Another shoe has to drop, at the very least to pick up our starter at the 4 spot, which we currently don't have.

I want to see a lineup of Smart, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, Crowder next season. All wings team. ;)

Jazz traded #24 and Lyles for pick #13.

Now they traded #30 and #42 for #28 with the Lakers.

The vibe is that the Jazz are preparing for life without Hayward. Might be a good sign for us  ;D

Does anyone know if Hayward has even opted-out of his contract yet?

I've heard lots of reports about him considering teams and what not, but not an official word on him opting-out  :o

We heard CP3 and Griffin say they'll opt out yesterday, and Millsap opted-out a while ago.

If Conley can get a max from Grizz, Hayward will get one from Jazz. Hayward isn't going to be available.

Depends on what Hayward wants. The Jazz don't spend money(lowest payroll in the NBA). They even offered him less money when he was going for an extension. But now they are signing an other tune with him, but would they spend money on some one else and go over the cap? How are they getting better players? FA? most likely not. Draft, nope too good for a good pick.

Bos has done this, and will. When DA and Stevens meets with him, and they show him what ever plan with PG13. And they have a better bench, and could be even better next season with the Nets 2018. They can improve almost every year for the next 3 to 5 with picks and FA's because the East may get weak, and players want that playoff check. And the West has gotten stronger. Mini could be a beast. PHX is on the rise, Maybe NO if AD and Cousins figures it out. LA may not tank this year and only will get better. Clips will go down most likely, but Huston could get better, who knows about Dallas and Portland. If OKC can get Griffin, they'll be better.

Plus if Boston goes to the finals, wouldn't Hayward make up some of that lost cash in endorsements? And I'm not as affraid of GSW as some, if we can get close with talent, have that young bench perform well, I trust our coach out couching Kerr every day of the week. We've  played them pretty well over the last few years. And thats with a so,so team. Imagine giving Stevens some weapons who can actually score.

According to Bleacher Report, it hasn't officially happened yet but it seems like a foregone conclusion. Even if he wants to stay in Utah, it still makes sense for him to opt out.

Bleacher Report predicts he goes to Miami because of the weather and Pat Riley  ::)

Also because Boston has a logjam at SF (partially true), and because Utah has no chance of really contending with the West being real strong and the team not having many other avenues to improve.

BUT how can you say that, but then say that, with the addition of Hayward, Miami becomes legitimate contenders in the East, even if they lose Waiters and/or Johnson..  ::)

not sure why he would pick miami if he wants to win. that team is one and done if they make the playoffs.

Boston was the #1 seed and made it to the ECF. if Hayward is going east so that he has a better chance of contending the Celtics are the clear choice

Exactly, and he can still make extra $$ here through endorsements and what not. Miami is Miami, but Boston is no small city either.

Utah's advantage is they can offer him more $$ straight up though..

Quote
Utah Jazz content provider Hayley Byrnes put players on the spot last week with the question: “Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady?”

Like cheese or chocolate, there’s no wrong choice.

Most went with Brady, but Gordon Hayward said because he’s a Colts fan, he prefers Rodgers.

“Can’t stand Tom Brady,” he said.

No truth to the rumor Brady immediately called for a ring count.

NEVER MIND. WE DON'T NEED OR WANT HIM  >:(
