Gordon Hayward was asked if he thinks loyalty to a team is important after Wednesday's game.
Hayward will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
"You know I think every player has different situations for reasons why they leave or stay,” he said. “I think it's definitely cool when guys play their whole career in one city. I grew up watching the Pacers, and Reggie Miller stayed there his whole career. He was a guy that everybody looked up to, so I think it's definitely cool. But, like I said, every situation is different, every player has different things going on, so you can't blame players one way or the other for staying or changing."
When Hayward was a restricted free agent in 2014, he signed a four-year, $63 million offer sheet with the then-Charlotte Bobcats that the Utah Jazz matched.
The Jazz can offer Hayward a fifth year and also 7.5 percent raises.
