News: Hayward is currently one of 19 players vying for a spot on Team USA's 12-man roster for the upcoming FIBA World Cup, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Impact: It's certainly an honor to represent your country in competition, but there's a slight hesitation from current and prospective owners of Hayward who know that he exhausted himself at points last season. A full offseason of rest at first glance seems like it would benefit the 24-year-old, although, there's a chance that his participation in the World Cup might jump start his shooting percentage that has declined after every season of his four-year career (48.5, 45.6, 43.5, 41.3).(RotoWire, )
