Hayward going OFF in Utah! 16 pts already in the first quarter!

I hope he scores a ton and they lose.

Our chances of getting him go up with a Jazz series loss to the Clippers.

I'm rooting for a Jazz series win. Griffin is a much better fit for us than Hayward, and I think we'll have a good shot at him with a series loss.

Position wise absolutely. However Im weary of giving Blake a 5yr max when he has already had 3 knee surgeries and has noticeably lost some of his explosiveness.

Hayward plus 21 in first quarter and his points tied Clippers! He would look awesome in Green with his old coach.

Speaking of that, he just went back to the locker room limping, and he looked pretty mad like he knew something was wrong. Ouch.

Anyone know how Gordon Haywood got that giant scare on his forehead?

Only resigning with your current team lets you sign a 5 year deal.  We would be signing him for 4
I'm bitter.

While completely true, I'd be similarly worried about giving a 4-year max deal to someone who's missed at least a month in each of the last three seasons.

The Thunder escaped thanks to Adams bailing out Westbrook for a dumb 3 attempt.

Jazz blowing it. Favors with two big missed free throws down the stretch.

And now Griffen has a bruised toe. IF he was more healthy, I'd be fine taking him, but he's on AB's level of durability, we'd end up having two guys who miss a big chunk of the season.

Hayward looks smooth. I have a feeling he's going to stay, but I don't know how much better the Jazz can get, too good for picks, not good enough to really compete. Not sure they can get a FA to come, and don't know what they can give up for a second star.

Should be an interesting off season.
