Rudy Gobert said he disliked how Gordon Hayward left the Jazz for the Celtics.

Now, the Utah center is expanding on precisely what bothered him.

Gobert, via Zach Lowe of ESPN:

“I could feel it,” Gobert says. “I was texting him a few days before [Hayward’s July 4th decision], and he wasn’t texting me back. That’s what I didn’t like. Just tell me. After five years, trust us, say what you are going to do. But I respect his choice.”

At that point, Hayward had to look out for himself. Talking to Gobert could have clouded his thoughts.
