It’s official. Gordon Hayward signed his offer sheet with the Charlotte Hornets, the team announced early Thursday morning, just hours after the NBA’s moratorium had lifted. The Utah Jazz will now have three days (until 9:59 p.m. MT on Sunday) to match the four-year, $63 million offer for the restricted free agent. Salt Lake Tribune

The Cavaliers and Hornets were among those stops, and Bartelstein said Hayward came away especially impressed by Charlotte’s pitch — a playoff team last year in the East, trying to take the next step — and, of course, by its cash. "They really rolled out the red carpet and let him know how bad they wanted him, and they obviously put together a terrific offer," Bartelstein said. Salt Lake Tribune

The Hornets have announced they've named Chad Buchanan as their assistant general manager. Buchanan spent the last 10 years with the Portland Trail Blazers, the last seven working as the director of college scouting. Buchanan also served as Portland's acting general manager from 2011-12 and was responsible for all player transactions, including the 2011 NBA Draft and free agency. Denver Post

Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho announced today that the team has added Pat Delany as an assistant coach on the staff of Head Coach Steve Clifford. Delany joins the Hornets after spending last season as head coach of the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the NBA D-League affiliate of the Miami Heat. NBA.com

That point was reiterated again late Tuesday when another person with knowledge of the situation told the Deseret News that Hayward agreeing to a max deal with the Hornets is a "non-issue for the Jazz." In other words, Utah will match. Deseret News

 

THE TOP 50 PLAYERS IN BOBCATS HISTORY

There's no sugarcoating it: It's a bad list where star power is pretty much non-existent. Gerald Wallace, the only All-Star in franchise history, goes to No. 1.
