Report: Jazz to Match Hornets Offer Sheet to Gordon Hayward

In the land of the obvious, the Utah Jazz will reportedly match the $63 million offer sheet Gordon Hayward received from the Charlotte Hornets earlier this month. 

It has long been expected that Utah would match whatever offer Hayward, a restricted free agent, received on the open market.

Hayward, a lottery pick of the Jazz back in 2010, averaged 16.2 points per game last season. He also added over five rebounds and five assists per outing. Michael Jordan attempted to make a major impact in free agency by signing a big name. He’s apparently going to have to go back to the drawing board.
