When the news broke via ESPN that Hayward was gone, the Jazz’s braintrust was floored – and then grounded. They were about to board the private plane in Austin, heading for a Plan B meeting with restricted free agent Otto Porter in Washington, D.C. A day before, Utah’s visit with Hayward in his offseason home in San Diego hadn’t come with any sort of commitment. So, naturally, they kept working during the agonizing wait.
His agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, denied the multiple reports that Hayward was headed for the Celtics and insisted no final decision had been made. The trio of Jazz officials, left in limbo, decided to stay put while waiting for clarity. “We didn’t want to jump on the flight and not being able to communicate,” Lindsey remembered. “And then we flew from Austin to Washington D.C., and then we found out the final decision…in D.C. We had the flight back from D.C. to Salt Lake City to kind of collect ourselves.”
Since John Wall went down with a left knee injury in late January, the Washington Wizards have enjoyed a surprising run of 10 wins in their last 13 games. Tomas Satoransky has filled in well and others like Bradley Beal and Otto Porter have stepped up to compensate. Some have observed the Wizards’ surge and suggested they might be better off without Wall in the mix. Warriors superstar Kevin Durant thinks that is ridiculous.
