Gordon Hayward is in town Wednesday visiting with the Cavaliers, a league source confirmed. Yahoo Sports first reported Hayward was meeting with team officials.
Hayward is a restricted free agent with the Utah Jazz. The Cavs have been targeting him for months, but know it will take a monster offer to pry him away from the Jazz, and it might still not be enough. The Jazz have insisted they will match any offer Hayward receives.
ESPN reported the Cavs are preparing what could be a max offer sheet for Hayward, who averaged career highs of 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in what was his fourth season in the league. Hayward and the Jazz were unable to agree on a contract extension last summer after he was selected ninth overall in the 2010 draft.
