In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
Playing for arguably the worst team in the league;
playing against arguably the best team in the West;
BDC whipping boy Gordon Hayward had a near triple double in a win over OKC.
In 37 mins, this kid, (who is "marginally" better than Avery Bradley), had 37 points on 13-16 shooting, 11 rebounds and 7 assists.
Durant had 48 in a losing effort, but Hayward was the best player on the floor last night.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I respect that. But it is my opinion that this kid is the real deal, and we should go after him full bore at season's end.
We pay Hump 12 mill this year..........Hayward, at 23, is not worth that much?
Let Bradley go and sign this guy............all sarcasm aside, I think "marginally" better is a gross understatement!!
If you're saying 12m for Hayward then maybe the Jazz won't match.
But I don't know if Hayward is really worth 12m per year.
Also, Humpy got 12m per year because he was averaging a double-double at that time.
I heard that what he wants................and this does a number of things. It strengthens our 2 spot for many years. It helps Green more than Bradley because Hayward would pass the ball. Lastly, it puts to bed the ridiculous notion that free agents don't want to play in Boston. Remember we heard that about the Sox a few years ago??
My point on Humpy is this - for 12 mill, he's a bench player this year (true, we didn't give him the money, but we are still paying him). At least Hayward would start and give us 30-35 mins in the prime of his career.
Not a knock on Humpy - I actually hope they re-sign him at a discount!
