Coach Jerry Sloan had high praise for Gordon Hayward (ninth pick) after watching him in Orlando. "He's not a mistake-free player," Sloan told the Desert News . "This is a game of mistakes. He'll make a mistake here or there. But he just plays. He just plays basketball. "We had another guy here years ago who did the same thing, and he ended up being a pretty good player -- John Stockton. "I don't mean to put that kind of pressure on [Hayward], but he plays."
