"Any time you talk to Michael Jordan, there's a little bit of that starstruck..."@gordonhayward on his conversations with MJ and why he chose to be a Charlotte Hornet.

Now that Gordon Hayward has inked his new contract and is a member of the Charlotte Hornets he reflected on why he made the decision to leave the team he signed with in free agency in 2017 for the one he signed an offer sheet with a few years prior.

The forward explained his decision to join the Hornets, which included speaking with Michael Jordan both now and back in 2014 when he was a restricted free agent.
