There are times when Hayward looks like the kind of crafty, almost Manu-esque scorer that could conceivably lead an offense. In fact, that might be an ideal role for him in an eventual contender: coming off the bench to feast upon poor defenses the way he torched Hardenís poor efforts tonight.
It might be. He's played some of his best ball coming off the bench. It's why they will probably have to let him go because he's going to get too much money for the role he is suited for.
