• Hornets extend offer to Hayward

    Gordon Hayward signed his offer sheet with the Hornets, the team announced early Thursday. Hayward, who visited with the Hornets this week, averaged 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game last season for Utah. Sources informed Yahoo! Sports, restricted free agent Gordon Hayward has signed a maximum four-year, $63 million offer sheet from the Hornets. Hayward hit just 30 percent of his 3-pointers last season, also a career low.

That position was again reported by several sources 1 but time will tell if the Jazz do match the offer sheet. If there was a standout player in Thursday’s scrimmage, it was rookie small forward Rodney Hood. The former Duke star ­ in his first real exposure to Jazz fans showed an all-around game that left many salivating. He made 3-pointers. He hit mid-range jumpers.
