Gordon Hayward’s 17 minutes of playing time Sunday in New Orleans were relatively uneventful by NBA All-Star Game standards. But the Utah Jazz forward caused some buzz before the ball was tipped off. As the players stood for the national anthem, Hayward was the only member of the Western Conference team to place his hand over his heart — a gesture that did not go unnoticed online after the team had posted a photo to its official Twitter account. “I got a bunch of tweets about that one,” Hayward said Wednesday as the Jazz resumed practice. “So that’s cool.”
Utah is all-in to keep Gordon Hayward, but they also need to shed some salary before their army of young players ink pricey new deals. They’ve tested the market for Derrick Favors over the last few weeks, according to several league sources; Favors hasn’t been quite the same since coming back from injury, and Utah plays Favors and Rudy Gobert together for only 10 or 12 minutes per game.

Albert Nahmad: Gordon Hayward might be the best and most fun interview in the whole of the NBA right now, given his crazy possible options this summer… If Gordon Hayward makes All NBA honors, he could be incentivized to choose a $16.7M player option over a $30.6M max salary. If Gordon Hayward misses All NBA honors, most appealing free agent contract might be virtually identical no matter where he chooses to sign.
