Jazz GM talks about Gordon Hayward’s free agency

Utah Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey said Thursday that the team will do everything it can to keep star forward Gordon Hayward, according to the Deseret News.

Lindsey said Hayward, who will be a free agent this summer, is vital to Utah’s future success.

“It goes without saying that every fiber of our collective soul as the Utah Jazz want him back,” Lindsey said. “We think it’s a great fit. You can’t force a marriage; it’s got to be both ways. But we’re very comfortable with where we’re at.”

Lindsey said there are potential roadblocks for the Jazz.

“It’s not like we can legally come to an agreement right now,” Lindsey said, referring to the July 1 date when teams can officially start signing free agents. He did say the Jazz were thrilled with the big step Hayward made this year in improving his game to All-Star status and they are doing everything they can to keep him in the fold.
