Perrin reiterated that the Jazz, as always, “look at the best available player” when it comes to the draft. And he added that Utah isn’t trying to find a possible replacement for swingman Gordon Hayward, who’ll be a restricted free agent come July 1. “Nope,” Perrin said. “That doesn’t come into our thinking because we think we’re going to have Gordon with us next year.” Deseret News
