But then Marc Stein, someone with more reliable sources, had reported that Gordon Hayward was not available.
Utah, sources say, is telling interested teams Gordon Hayward is unavailable. Ditto for Milwaukee with Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton.

Jody Genessey, who is a Utah Jazz writer for the Deseret News, checked with his sources as well and also denied the rumors that Hayward was unhappy.
I've contacted multiple sources in the Jazz and who know Gordon Hayward. That trade rumor has zero merit.

At this point, it seems safe to say that Geltzeiler’s source was just wrong and that Gordon Hayward is not available. It wouldn’t make sense for the Jazz to trade Hayward anyway.
Gordon Hayward has become a terrific two-way player for the Jazz and is a true star. He has yet to bring the Jazz to the playoffs, but as he continues to improve, he’ll have them in the playoffs in no time.
