The Charlotte Hornets are desperately searching for another wing scorer to go along with Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson, and they may be zeroing in on their guy. According to a report from Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, the Hornets are going to meet with Utah Jazz restricted free agent Gordon Hayward. Hayward would be a perfect fit for what the Hornets are looking for, but the Jazz are expected to match any and every offer for him. This is certainly an intriguing situation to keep an eye on, but it most likely will end up with Hayward’s offer sheet being matched by the Jazz. That being said, the Hornets still believe that it is worth the effort to meet with Hayward and see if they can figure something out that will force the Jazz to seriously consider whether or not to match the deal. It will be interesting to see what Charlotte works up to make things difficult on Utah. Hayward played in and started 77 regular season games with the Jazz last year, averaging 16.2 points, 5.2 assists, and 5.1 rebounds per game. He struggled with his shot all-around and would have seen his scoring average rise significantly if he could have figured his issues out. His defense was solid as well, but he still has plenty of work to do before he reaches his full potential. He would certainly see his role take a major leap if he signed with the Hornets, and he would immediately be a huge piece of a playoff
