The two people that averaged more points per game than Hayward last season are no longer on the team. That alone could mean that Hayward will lead the team in scoring and he could be the new go-to guy.
With that said, there is so many young players on this team with a lot of potential, so every game could be very different for Utah. At times we could see one player have a huge game, while the very next game that same player could go scoreless.
Young players can be very inconsistent to say the least. Whether the case, Hayward averaged 14.1 points per game last season. He has gotten better and better every season and I think this is the year that he will finally breakout. Don’t get me wrong, 14.1 points per game is good and all, but he is talented enough to score near 20 points per game.
He has only been in the league for three seasons.
He did shoot 43.5 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from behind the arc last year. Making 102 threes was not too shabby either.
It will be interesting to see how the Jazz do in the upcoming season, but Hayward very well could be the best player on the team and he will show that by having a breakout season.
