Heat to Meet With Gordon Hayward

Author

30 June, 2017

The theoretical pairing of Blake Griffin or Gordon Hayward with Paul George has been circulating for weeks on National Basketball Association blogs and podcasts. He will then take a meeting with the Utah Jazz on Monday.

The package that Danny Ainge and the the Celtics are sending to IN has been reported as Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley or Tyler Zeller's contract plus a few draft picks, ones that are not the coveted 2018 Brooklyn Nets pick or the 2018 L.A. Lakers/2019 Kings or 76ers pick Boston received from Philadelphia for the No. 1 pick IN last week's draft. Hayward might finally be getting paid like an All-Star.

Free agency hasn't even started yet but Bull's star player Jimmy Butler was introduced as the newest member of the Minnesota just before Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets. Also, George, who averaged 23.7 points last season, reportedly would like to play in Los Angeles. He is great asset. Despite injury issues this past season, Hill was an excellent addition for the Jazz that helped them improve dramatically and he's an excellent fit on the court, in the locker room and in the community. In the playoffs, Hayward averaged 24.1 points per game in 11 contests. If the Jazz want to keep him on their team, with his shooting improving, there might not be a better reason to maintain him at all costs. It would only make sense for Utah to make sure there is an eighth season.

Spithill was 30 when he won it in 2010. "Looking back we needed to take more time to make key decisions in our strategy". There were two quick gybes to get around the last mark - a massive ask of the grinders at the end of the second race.

The team would also have a nice group of young players who should continue to develop-with Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and newly-drafted rookie Bam Adebayo. They wrapped up their 16-17 campaign on a high note as the fifth place team of the Western Conference, with a record of 51-31.

With the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers meeting in the NBA Finals for three straight years, it seems to be inevitable that they will dominate the league yet again in 2018.
