Gordon Hayward 2013-2014 Season Outlook
Posted 24 July 2013 - 04:13 AM
Projections? I think we could see something like: 16pts, 2 treys, 4 rebs, 4 ast, 1 stl. That's a pretty decent line depending on where you can get him in the draft.

I think baseline 17 - 1.5 - 3 - 3 - .8
Optimal 20 - 2 - 4 - 4 - 1
He's a solid player, and I wouldn't overlook him on draft day. 89th ranked player last year by average in 9 cat, which would be 8th round value. He will be gone before that this year.

For all the hoopla being directed at Favors and Kanter, I think people are underestimating the impact of the departure of Millsap and Jefferson on Hayward. There's a lot more touches to be had on the offensive end, and despite their skills, I seriously doubt two youngsters are going to step right in and fully replace the usage of Millsap and Jefferson (particularly Jefferson - pass the ball to him and you'll never see it again). I think Hayward will have a far more significant offensive role this year, which is quite important since he's always been stuck with an inconsistent 26-32 minute role in previous years. During the last month of last season where he got 34.7 minutes, he posted top 50 numbers. He's got a very versatile game despite his athletic limitations, and I'd be eager to pick him in the 60-70s. I'd totally understand if someone were to reach even earlier though. I must say that it'll take a near miracle for him to average 20 points though. Even 17 is a stretch.
I don't think Hayward really is at a disadvantage with his athleticism, in fact I think he's above average for his size/position combo. I just think we're not used to seeing guys that are basically translucent and 6'8" with solid athleticism. I don't know why this is, but there are plenty of very athletic white guys in the NBA's history/present, but they always seem to be dark haired like guys from former Yugoslavia or Italians or Spaniards etc. 9 times out of 10 when you see a guy of Northern European decent in the NBA he's a bruiser and a big, or if he's a guard he's a pure shooter (I think of Novak as the prototype for this kind of guy). I was going to say Kirilenko was one of the rare exceptions but Russians are more Slav's than Northern Europeans. Maybe the Barry's?
Anyway, I totally got off track there, but I am loving the Hayward pick next year. He has a game that is just built for fantasy, especially roto, and he's the reason the Jazz were willing to let both bigs goes beyond Favors/Kanter. I'm looking at his post ASB #'s from last year (once the Jazz figured out there rotation a little bit more, they were a wreck all year though it seemed) and he put up:
Gordon Hayward (SG/SF): 33min/g - 15.1p 1.9thr 3.5reb 3.7ast 1.0stl 0.6blk 1.4to on 44%FG/44%thr/84%FT
Those are some solid numbers if you ask me, and those were deflated in my opinion but the lack of defined role and moving in and out of the starting 5 constantly since they liked him running the 2nd unit against better teams. I would expect a 10-20% increase in most of his #'s.
Looks like he's starting his summer off on the right foot, too. Posted today, "multiple sources report Gordon Hayward and Doug McDermott have been the stand-outs of Team USA mini-camp so far".

As long as Ty Corbin doesn't keep messing with his minutes, I think he's a great play. He's like a slightly poorer man's Chandler Parsons. Actually he is pretty much on the same level, dependent on his MPG.
I see him as equal if not superior to Parsons actually

Gordon Hayward said he has been asked to be more of a playmaker this season.
The Jazz basically have a clean slate compared to last year, losing four of their top-five scorers from 2012-13. Hayward seems to be a lock to improve on his 14.1 points per game and his second-half 3-point shooting also gives him plenty of hope for a breakout season. The Butler swingman made 44.0 percent of his triples after the break and he's someone we're targeting in the middle rounds.
PG- Jeff Teague, DJ Augustin, Ramon Sessions, Kyrie Irving
SG- Victor Oladipo, Jodie Meeks, Kyle Korver
SF- Kevin Durant, Tobias Harris, Kawhi Leonard
PF- Kevin Love
C- Gorgui Dieng , Omer Asik

What's his projected ADP?
On ESPN, ranked 113 and ADP of 106. Could be an easy steal as your second or third SG.

With friends who are fantasy veterans, you may have to draft as early as the 50's maybe. But 70's or 80's is a good steal. You'd be really risking losing him though by waiting.
