by October 21, 2013

The Utah Jazz are said to be working on a contract extension for Gordon Hayward, and they might have to fork over more than the $49 million they gave to Derrick Favors. Per the Salt Lake Tribune and ESPN: “The Jazz front office continues to have talks with fourth-year forward Gordon Hayward about a possible contract extension. But even after the team announced Saturday it had agreed to a multi-year deal with forward Derrick Favors, worth a reported $49 million over four seasons, Hayward said he is not concerned about getting a deal done. ‘Not at all,’ he said. ‘Extremely happy for him. It’s great for the organization, for [Favors]. Couldn’t be happier for him. I’m just playing basketball. I don’t worry about that.'”
