Jazz Match Hornets Offer to Gordon Hayward

Restricted free agent swingman Gordon Hayward will return to the Utah jazz after the offer sheet he signed with the Charlotte Hornets was matched.

“But it’s always a wonderful thing when your own organization values you so much that they’d match a contract like this said Mark Bartelstein, Hayward’s agent. I think it makes a great statement to Gordon about how they feel about him and value him.”

Last season Hayward was only one of five players in the league to average at least 15 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds.
