(KUtV) The Utah Jazz went through locker-room cleanout and addressed the media Tuesday morning. Gordon Hayward said he was proud of the Jazz for winning 51 games and battling through injuries this season. The team made significant strides by winning 11 more games than the previous year and defeating the Los Angeles Clippers in the first-round of the playoffs. Hayward will likely be a prize free agent this offseason, Boston and Miami are already rumored to have interest in the All-Star forward. Starting point guard George Hill and small forward Joe Ingles could also test free agency. Dave Fox and Adam Mikulich have more.
