There is no guarantee Gordon Hayward will return to the Jazz for the 2017-18 season, but if he does, Joe Ingles will be there with him.
Ingles will re-sign with the Jazz, agreeing Saturday to a four-year deal, according to ESPN.
The 29-year-old swing player, who is one of Hayward’s closest friends, averaged 7.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists this past season.
As for Hayward, he met with the Heat Saturday and is not expected to make a decision on where he will go until next week.
Another survivor at the expense of his head coach, operating in a new, demanding L.A. market. Now that Jeff Fisher isn’t around to kick around anymore, the spotlight shines brighter on Snead’s shortcomings. The vaunted Robert Griffin III trade did almost nothing for the Rams. Sean McVay is a big leap at head coach, and Jared Goff needs to start showing he’s worth the top pick (and the trade that brought him there) sooner rather than later.
Tom Coughlin has become the face and voice of the front office, but Caldwell still holds the title, and he’s got a lot to prove. This is at least the third year of gushing about the smart signings, hirings and drafting the Jags have done, yet the overall record is … what it is. (They’re 15-49 on his watch.) Hiring Doug Marrone as coach was more of a Coughlin operation, but Blake Bortles is Caldwell’s baby.
