What he brings » Perhaps no player on the Jazz roster will have a greater impact this season. Hayward, a long, athletic swingman, has been a complementary piece during his first three seasons in Utah. This year, Hayward will be relied upon heavily as the team’s primary scoring threat. He’s creative with the ball and can score or find open teammates. But can he succeed regularly while getting extra attention from opposing defenses?

What he brings » When the Jazz traded away All-Star point guard Deron Williams, they gambled heavily on Favors, the centerpiece of the package that came back from New Jersey. Now, with a new multi-year extension, the Jazz have doubled down on the super athletic big man. While his offensive game seems to lack a well-developed post move, the Jazz believe the quiet guy from Georgia Tech can be an elite defender in the league.
