Cody Zeller hopes Hornets do land Gordon HaywardPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Charlotte Observer reporting on the Hornets. That’s right, the Hornets. There aren’t Bobcats around anymore. Not in NBA basketball, at least. Get used to it. The Hornets. Charlotte Hornets. Anyway, here:
Would free-agent forward-guard Gordon Hayward be a good fit with the Charlotte Hornets?
No, Hornets forward Cody Zeller replied Wednesday; Hayward would be a “perfect” fit.
“I love his game. He plays really fundamental basketball, creates a lot for his teammates,” Zeller said following summer-league practice.
“(Passing is) one of his talents. And he shoots really well and he’s big for a guard. I think he’d be perfect for us.”
Hayward, 6-foot-8, who played his first four seasons with the Utah Jazz, has agreed to sign a four-year, $63 million offer sheet with the Hornets once the NBA’s moratorium on signings ends Thursday. The Observer reported the Hornets’ agreement with Hayward early Wednesday morning.
