“There are a lot of people out there that seemed to think this guy (Gordon Hayward) was going to go for near max money,” (Stan) Van Gundy told the Salt Lake City radio station. “I don’t see that, myself. I think he’s a very good player, very athletic, can do a lot of things. But I think the way the game is going, a perimeter guy who is not a good shooter, not a real good shooter, I think that limits his value in today’s game.”

Hayward is averaging 16 points, five rebounds and five assists a game, but is shooting just 40 percent from the floor. Van Gundy said he believes Hayward is worth “a little bit above the mid-level exception,” or about $6.5 million to $7 million.

“But from what I’ve heard, he’s going to get a lot more than that interest-wise,” Van Gundy said.
