NBA free agency has been an absolute blast. From the Los Angeles Clippers throwing together this ridiculous t-shirt for Blake Griffin to the Oklahoma City Thunder milking the Indiana Pacers in the Paul George trade, things have been pretty darn interesting.
Now comes this tweet from Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert trolling the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics in their pursuit of All-Star forward Gordon Hayward.

That’s some next level stuff right there. Read into it what you want, but Gobert is definitely taking to the public as a way to recruit Hayward into returning to Utah.
The forward met with both Boston and Miami on Saturday. He’s also being pursued by other teams around the Association. Though, Utah can still offer the veteran more money than any other team. In that case, the Jazz have the upper-hand here.
It will surely be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out over the next several hours. But Gobert himself has made his pitch to Hayward. And it was a glorious pitch in and of itself.
