Gordon Hayward Talks 'Frustrating' Role with Thunder: Not What I Thought It Would Be

Gordon Hayward played a grand total of 15 minutes during the Oklahoma City Thunder's second-round loss to the Dallas Mavericks, and he opened up about his experience with the team this season.

"Disappointing with how it all kind of worked out," he told reporters Sunday. "Certainly frustrating. I feel as a player, I have a lot to offer. Just wasn't really given much of an opportunity to do that. I thought I would be given that opportunity."

He also said," it's not what I thought it would be."

Oklahoma City landed Hayward via trade from the Charlotte Hornets in February, and there was some thought he would provide veteran leadership for a young team with its eyes on a championship run.
