GM Dennis Lindsey said he hopes restricted free agent Gordon Hayward is a "career Jazz member."
At just 24 years old, Hayward was one of just four players to average 15 points, five rebounds and five assists. The others were LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Michael Carter-Williams. Hayward's 41.3 percent shooting leaves a lot to be desired, but the Jazz would be silly not to match any offer within reason. They can afford him and a max free agent if it comes to that.

Gordon Hayward scored 21 points with six boards, four assists and one 3-pointer against the Lakers during Monday's 119-104 loss.

The Jazz were able to score the ball a bit, but their defense continues to hurt them. They will finish this season with the worst record in the Western Conference and have a decision to make on free-agent Hayward. His 41.3 percent from the field is a weakness, but it's hard to be too tough on him considering the lack of help around him on the perimeter.

Gordon Hayward led the Jazz to a rare win on Friday in his 37 minutes of action, beating the Pelicans 100-96 with a line of 21 points, four boards, six assists, three stelae and two 3-pointers.

He shot 11-of-13 from the line and the Jazz went after the Pelicans in the paint quite a bit in the win. They're still sitting in last place in the Western Confernce after this game and have only won three games since Mar. 1, but at least their offense isn't a total disaster -- their defense is another story. Hayward is worth starting in all leagues despite his lackluster field goal shooting.
Apr 5 - 1:23 AM

Gordon Hayward made just 5-of-13 from the field for 16 points during Sunday's 116-96 loss to the Thunder, adding two boards, nine assists and two turnovers.

He had himself a nice March and entered today with averages of 16.7 points, 4.0 boards, 5.5 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.2 blocks and 1.1 triples on 47.5 percent from the field. The big increase here was the field goal shooting, which was up from a Brandon Jennings-like 34.1 percent back in February. Hayward is looking at a nice pay day in the offseason.
Mar 30 - 5:51 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 32 points on 10-of-19 shooting (3-of-6 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in the Jazz's 114-94 loss to the Pistons on Monday.

Hayward's field goal shooting has soared to 47.6 percent over the last month, as expected, but the other numbers haven't followed making it somewhat of a wasted opportunity for him. Including tonight he has hit just 73.6 percent shots from the line on 4.5 attempts per game, so tonight's 9-of-10 mark could be an indicator that he's ready to get back on track there. With Alec Burks out right now, he is the only real weapon the team has besides Trey Burke (15 points, two assists).
Mar 25 - 1:55 AM

Gordon Hayward played a whopping 44 minutes and hit 7-of-15 shots for 22 points, two rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in Saturday's win over the Sixers.

He's been shooting it better lately and his numbers have followed. Despite some poor shooting this season, Hayward should be in fantasy lineups on most nights, as he's simply one of the best players in a Jazz uniform.
Mar 8 - 10:07 PM

Gordon Hayward hit 6-of-8 shots in Friday's blowout loss to the Knicks, scoring 18 points with seven rebounds, five assists and two threes.

Hayward's shooting slump was bound to bounce back the other way and don't look now but over his last eight games he has hit 45.4 percent of his shots. If he can keep that up and keep from being dragged down by a team that has lost all of it's fight, then early round numbers should follow.
Mar 7 - 11:54 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points on 6-of-15 shooting (2-of-6 from deep, 6-of-6 from the line) with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Jazz's blowout loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Hayward and Enes Kanter were the only Jazz players worth anything on Monday and Hayward did well to get his numbers with the team imploding. He's in the midst of a 37.4 percent shooting stretch over his last 13 games and a regression in that department is on the way.
Mar 3 - 11:19 PM

Gordon Hayward filled up the stat sheet against the Cavs in a loss on Friday with 18 points, seven boards, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

He shot a respectable 6-of-13 from the field and is starting to come out of his slump after a 7-of-13 on Wednesday. Hayward has been filling it up all season in the stats department, but he's shooting just 40 percent from the field and ranks last among Western Conference shooting guards. He hasn't shown any signs of improvement, so he's more of a hold.
Feb 28 - 9:54 PM

Gordon Hayward just missed a triple-double on Wednesday during a 109-86 win over the Suns, scoring 17 points with 10 boards, nine assists and one 3-pointer on 7-of-13 from the field.

The stats are nice, but the solid shooting might be the best part of this line. Hayward entered tonight shooting a paltry 30.4 percent in February with averages of 11.1 points, 5.1 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.9 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples. If he can somehow get his shooting act together, he'd have early-round value in standard formats.
Feb 27 - 1:47 AM

Gordon Hayward hit just 2-of-10 shots for five points, zero rebounds, zero assists, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes on Saturday.

The buy-low window is wide open, as Hayward has been struggling with his shot all season long. His shot may never be right this year, but he's still averaging 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five, despite tonight's disaster. We say 'buy!'
Feb 23 - 12:13 AM

Gordon Hayward shot 3-of-11 from the field for nine points in Wednesday's 105-99 loss to the Nets, adding five boards, three assists and one 3-pointer.

His name has popped up in uninformed trade rumors, but just about any player on a bad team can say that. While the Jazz did not sign him to an extension before this season started, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be letting him walk this summer. Eric Bledsoe is a similar example. Hayward's fantasy owners should consider him a hold unless his field goal shooting woes are too much to take.
Feb 20 - 1:49 AM

The Celtics have "expressed some interest" in trading for Gordon Hayward but the Jazz may not be interested in dealing for the Celtics' available assets.

Rajon Rondo wouldn't re-sign in Utah even if he were dealt there, which is unlikely, and Utah reportedly doesn't have interest in Jeff Green. They'd most likely demand at least one first-round pick for Hayward, and GM Danny Ainge is reluctant to dip into his stockpile of picks, so don't read too much into this trade-rumor morsel.
Feb 19 - 9:14 AM

Gordon Hayward hit just 3-of-17 shots on Wednesday, but still came through with 17 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three blocks in a win over the Sixers.

Hayward is a bit of a freak right now, as he's hit just 8-of-30 shots over his last two games. However, he's been in triple-double territory in both of them, averaging 16.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.5 blocks. His shot has been a bit of a disaster all season and he had scored in single digits in three straight games prior to his last two. He came in shooting 41 percent on the season and that number dropped after this one, but you also have to figure he starts making some shots at some point this season. If his field goal percentage is killing your fantasy team, now looks like a great time to try to move him.
Feb 13 - 2:25 AM

Gordon Hayward hit just 5-of-13 shots, but still racked up 15 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's win.

He had nine points, nine rebounds and 11 assists on Saturday, and while his scoring isn't all that mind-blowing right now, he's racking up stats. He's averaging 11.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five.
