Not all NBA teams are waiting to see what free agents LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony will do. Late Tuesday night, Utah Jazz free agent forward Gordon Hayward and the Charlotte Hornets agreed to a four-year, $63 million offer sheet, according to multiple reports.

Once the 24-year-old Hayward signs the offer sheet, the Jazz will have three days to decide whether they will match the offer.

Numerous reports have indicated that the Jazz will match the offer.

Hayward, who also had visited the Cleveland Cavaliers, can sign the offer sheet at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.

The 6-8 small forward averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds last season for the Jazz.
