Flip could actually be a great fit if he's got anything left. When's the last time he played anywhere? They need a vet big if anything though and I'm thinking Dallas isn't their guy!

Also on the horizon: Free agency. Potentially, at least. Hayward and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, are currently in talks with the Jazz to extend his contract this summer. If no deal is reached, he’ll become a restricted free agent next summer. “It’s crazy that this is already going to be my fourth year and we’re already talking about that,” Hayward said. “But I’m definitely happy in Utah and love playing there and would love to continue my career there.”

09-10 last time Flip played in the NBA, but made the training camp for Memphis in 2012. He's still been playing in Europe though between that.

Hayward and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, are currently in talks with the Jazz to extend his contract this summer. If no deal is reached, he’ll become a restricted free agent next summer. “It’s crazy that this is already going to be my fourth year and we’re already talking about that,” Hayward said. “But I’m definitely happy in Utah and love playing there and would love to continue my career there.”

Indianapolis Star

Inevitably, the conversation shifted to this summer’s biggest news: That of Hayward’s former coach, Brad Stevens, leaving the school after six stellar seasons to become the head coach of the Boston Celtics. Hayward smiled. He said he was as shocked as anyone when it happened, but he couldn’t be more excited for Stevens. “It’s the Boston Celtics, how do you turn that down?” he said. “It’s been a dream of his to coach at that level. And to be in Boston, there’s almost no other place, as far as tradition-wise, in the NBA that can match that.”

Indianapolis Star

Hayward said he’s mostly been in Indianapolis, training five days a week at St. Vincent. He spends his mornings on the basketball court and his afternoons in the weight room, “working on explosion and speed stuff,” he said. “I’m lucky to have a place like this where I can train,” he said. “A lot of guys have to travel and are all over the place. It’s cool that I can be here and hang out with friends and family and still get plenty of basketball work in.”

"He was a terrific player," said former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, who played against Beaty as a member of the Chicago Bulls. "Zelmo was big and strong and nasty *— the kind of guy you wanted on your team." Sloan remembered playing the Hawks once during the 1968-69 season when a Beaty elbow cost Tom Boerwinkle, Chicago’s rookie center, "about 10 teeth." Sloan laughed and said, "It was unintentional, I think. Welcome to the NBA." Salt Lake Tribune

He was the Jazz's play by play guy before Boone.

The 6-6 swingman Justin Holiday, the older brother of New Orleans All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday, has workouts scheduled with the Utah Jazz and Miami Heat this week, he tells CSNNW.com. According to Holiday, on the 11th and 12th of September, he's working out for the Jazz. The Heat workout is expected to take place towards the end of the week.

There are ongoing talks of two more workouts he'll be involved in next week, however he says there's nothing concrete as of now. “I'm just going to go into these workouts and give them my all,” Holiday told CSNNW.com. “It's important that I leave a good impression because this is a crucial point in my career.”

BREAKDOWN – Hayward’s task – A study of going from 3rd to 1st option.

Posted on September 12, 2013 by David Locke

This year the Utah Jazz will ask Gordon Hayward to go from the 3rd offensive option to the number one option.

Again to me Kanter, Burks and possibly Burke seem like more go to guys. G's scoring average should increase and he should have have the ball in his hands but he's too good at other things to put to much of the scoring burden on him. I'd rather see his assist average increase greatly.

Quote:
This is an enormous burden on a player. Last season, Hayward used 14 possessions a game it is fair to guess he’ll be near 19 or 20 possessions a game this season. Hayward’s move to the bench last year, increased his possession usage when he was on the floor from the previous year greatly. This will make the transition a bit easier than it would have been otherwise. For example, two seasons ago Hayward used 13.7 scoring opportunities per 40 minutes and last season he used 17.2 scoring opportunities for 40 minutes. At that rate Hayward would have to make almost no change to get to19 or 20 possessions a game assuming he plays 38 tonight.

hayward

However, defenses will make an adjustment to Hayward and this is what makes going from being the number three option to the number one option so difficult. Over the next few days we will look at those players who have had to have a similar jump in their game and see what it did to their efficiency productivity.

Our first piece of analysis will be current jazzman Richard Jefferson who on two different occasions in his career with asked to pick up the primary scoringload. Looking at the chart below you will see in the yellow highlights areas where Jefferson had an increase in possession usage. Both of those times Jefferson’s first year actually he increased is efficiency before slipping in the second year. Overall, Jeffersons performance in those two seasons at the number one option are not greatly different from what he did as a complimentary player to the stars he has played with. This is a very good sign for what the Jazz can expect for Gordon Hayward this upcoming season.

With seven guards already under contract, the Suns signed shooting guard Dionte Christmas on Friday after he showed his pure scoring ability on their NBA Summer League entry in July.
Arizona Republic

Christmas signed a multi-year contract with a small guarantee on the first season, a deal that is similar in structure to what he had with Boston last year. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough was with Boston last year, when Christmas was waived during the preseason. “He was a key contributor for our Las Vegas Summer League team and his scoring ability, leadership and toughness will help us this season,” McDonough said in a prepared statement.

He was one of the better looking players for the Jazz entry.

According to L'Equipe, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Utah Jazz are interested in Alexis Ajinca. Basket USA

I guess he's a vet. Been out of the league a couple years. Looks like he has some offensive skills out to 3 point range. Gets blocks and steals. Good numbers in the Euro Championships and French League. Has put on 30 or so lbs.

Looks like OKC might not even have any roster spots open. Jazz looks like a better opportunity for playing.

This sucks unless it means they'll be able to trade him.

As he continues to workout for an array of NBA squads this month, RidiculousUpside.com has learned that James Nunnally has already received a training camp invite from the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ridiculous Upside

Though receiving such an invite is quite an honor in itself, the guard's work is not yet done. He'll continue to workout for other teams as scheduled this week, including the Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans.

Former Illini and Peoria Central product DJ Richardson has earned a tryout with the Utah Jazz. As a senior at Illinois, Richardson was second on the team in scoring, averaging 12.3 points per game. He was ninth in the Big Ten in scoring.
