Joe Ingles joked that he may take Gordon Hayward's No. 20 next season.
“I might take his number,” said Ingles, who’s worn No. 2 the last three seasons in Utah. “I might take number 20.”
Ingles is looking forward to guarding Hayward when the Jazz play the Celtics next season.
I’m definitely guarding him,” Ingles said, laughing. “I’ve already told Coach (Quin Snyder). I texted coach the next day and said between me and Donovan (Mitchell), we’ll give him a good game.”
Ingles was believed to be Hayward's closest friend on the Jazz.
“He’s always going to be a good friend of mine,” Ingles said. “But I still don’t like him for the time being because he left us, but we’ll be fine.”
