Rumors Abound Of Jazz Acquisition Possibilities
Posted by Nancy on May 26, 2010
Realistically, the Jazz are not going to end up with LeBron James or anyone else of that magnitude but hopes are high for acquiring some impressive talent in this off season. It seems obvious to almost everyone that the Jazz will be picking up a power forward in the upcoming draft, and predictions from so-called “experts” say that the Jazz will take center Greg Monroe as the 9th pick.
Even so, rumors are also swirling that the team may also be in the market for another wing player. The name being thrown around is Gordon Hayward a 6′8″ player out of Butler University. Many Utahns are familiar with Hayward as he was instrumental in Butlers’ win in the NCAA West Regional which was held in Salt Lake City this spring. The theory is that if the Jazz cut Carlos Boozer loose, Hayward could be used with Paul Millsap to strengthen the team. The draft is coming up soon and it will be interesting to see how the Jazz fare.
