The Charlotte Hornets threw a max offer sheet at Gordon Hayward this past week, only to have the Utah Jazz match it. Instead of having Hayward as their small forward of the future, the Hornets need to find a placeholder until they're able to keep building the core around Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker, and Noah Vonleh. It looks like they may have found that small forward.

Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports is reporting the Hornets and Marvin Williams have agreed to a two-year deal for $14 million. The entire deal is fully guaranteed with no team or player option for the second year.

Looks like Charlotte was determined to grab at least one small forward from the Jazz. Williams spent the last two seasons in Utah. In those two seasons, he averaged 8.1 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting 43.2 percent from the field and 34.5 percent from 3-point range. He started 101 of the 139 games he played for the Jazz, averaging 24.5 minutes.
