Gordon Hayward said he will prioritize contending for a title as a free agent this offseason.
Hayward will surely have several max contract offers on the open market while the Utah Jazz can offer ore money and an extra guaranteed season.
The Jazz want to get healthy and demonstrate to Hayward that they have a nucleus capable of competing for a title.
“It comes down to where I can compete for a title,” he said. “Where I live — that doesn’t affect me. The limelight doesn’t matter to me. I just want to make a run at it.”
