“They’ll never get rid of Gordon Hayward,” (Raja) Bell said of the Jazz. “But for his sake, I would hope that they’d let him go and see what it’s like to play in other places in the NBA where they do things a little more professionally and are up with the times.”
Bell added with a laugh, “Forgive me, Utah.”
“The reason I think Gordon needs to move is because I don’t think he’s a true No. 1 player,” Bell said. “I think Gordon is an awesome No. 2 guy. He’s phenomenal — 19.3 a game, almost five assists. But he’s a No. 2.”
