SALT LAKE CITY — The clock is ticking on the NBA trade deadline. The Utah Jazz have until 1 p.m. Thursday to do some wheeling and dealing for the last time until next offseason.

"This time of year is difficult," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "You don't know. … Something may come out of nothing."

The Jazz are willing to entertain offers on just about everybody on their squad. But one NBA general manager told Sporting News that Utah isn't actively shopping Gordon Hayward — not even to Boston where he's reportedly coveted by former Butler coach Brad Stevens and Celtics management.

"They’re not out there trying to trade him at all," the anonymous GM told Sporting News.

Hayward couldn't reach terms on an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, so he'll become a restricted free agent this offseason.

"It's nothing we can worry about, nothing we can control," Hayward said. "We're all Jazz players right now."
