Point guard Ricky Rubio, recently acquired in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves as a key part of the Utah Jazz’s plan to re-sign prized free agent Gordon Hayward, traveled from Spain to join the team’s contingent in Monday’s meeting with the All-Star small forward, sources told ESPN.

General manager Dennis Lindsey, head coach Quin Snyder, team president Steve Starks, ownership trustee Gail Miller, center Rudy Gobert and forward Joe Ingles were also part of the Utah group that traveled to Hayward’s San Diego home to attempt to persuade him to re-sign with the Jazz, according to sources. The Monday meeting lasted approximately 3½ hours, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
