Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors: Gordon Hayward talks are 'greatly exaggerated'

The NBA offseason is in full swing as free agents are flying all around the country to try and find out where the best place for them is and where they can find the best money. For Utah Jazz restricted free agent Gordon Hayward, the Cleveland Cavaliers are starting to show an interest and there has been a report that they plan on offering him a max contract offer sheet.

It seems as though those reports might not be totally true, as FOX Sports Ohio reporter Sam Amico is directly refuting the rumors that the Cavaliers are set to offer Hayward a massive contract.

It’s unclear just exactly what this means as the exaggeration could be in the details of the contract, the validity of the talks themselves or the legitimacy of the rumor to begin with.

Either way, the Cavaliers are looking to get aggressive this offseason in their plans to stop being a joke of a franchise and that’ what this Hayward rumor seemed to suggest to the rest of the league. There’s no saying that Hayward would sign the offer sheet if given to him, but the Cavaliers want to get better and should this rumor be true then it fully displays the desperation in Cleveland.
