Utah Jazz extend qualifying offer to Gordon Hayward

The Utah Jazz extend their qualifying offer to small forward Gordon Hayward, leaving the team open to matching offers made by other sides in the off-season.

The Utah Jazz have extended a qualifying offer to Gordon Hayward, meaning that they can now match any offer made to him by another team.

The move makes Hayward a restricted free agent, allowing Utah to maintain a tight grip on the player despite his place on the market.

Hayward was a key performer for Utah last season, with the small forward averaging 16.2 points, as well as having seven games with double-digit rebounds and six with double-digit assists.

Hayward originally joined the Jazz as a Draft pick in 2010.
