Gordon Hayward and the Utah Jazz continue to discuss a contract extension ahead of the Oct. 31 deadline.

Hayward would become a restricted free agent this coming offseason if he is unable to agree to an extension with the Jazz.

Reports suggest Hayward would only agree to an extension bigger than the four-year, $49 million deal that Derrick Favors recently agreed to with the Jazz.

Talks are expected to go down to the wire.
