Gordon Hayward will be a restricted free agent this week, meaning Utah can match any deal he gets offered. He’s not likely to jump teams, but if somebody is willing to offer him a deal that the Jazz view as too pricey, he could be lured elsewhere. To Phoenix, perhaps.
The Phoenix Suns are expected to make Gordon Hayward a significant offer, possibly a max deal, but Utah Jazz will match, per sources.
