Report: Orlando Magic could have offer for Joe Ingles worth $60 million

Multiple US outlets reported on Sunday that Ingles has agreed to terms on a four-year, $US52 million deal to remain with the Utah Jazz.

Before free agency tipped-off, Ingles had made clear that staying with the Jazz was his best option.

Ingles himself is coming off his best season as a professional with averages of 7.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.5 three-pointers across 24.0 minutes. Ingles was a restricted free agent, meaning the Jazz could match any offer he received.

Ingles had been one of the three-and-D archetype commodities in the free agent pool, one that proved to be the fourth-sharpest three-point threat in the league - making 134 trifectas in 44.1 percent shooting from beyond the arc. "I think the priority is Utah", said Ingles.

Hundreds of people lined up outside dispensaries that opened from 12 a.m.to 3 a.m. and had to turn away customers like Deneal. He drove with his sister and soon-to-be brother-in-law from the rental auto facility in Las Vegas straight to the dispensary.

Nevertheless, there was concern that it could be hard to keep Ingles after his breakout season made him one of the league's more sought-after Three-and-D specialists. The two players also share the same agent - Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, per Wojnarowski.

Hayward is scheduled to meet with the Jazz on Monday.

Re-signing Ingles and trading for point guard Ricky Rubio were significant parts of the Jazz's plan to assemble a roster that appeals to Hayward.

While it is a little more than pricey to re-sign Ingles to that amount, he seems to be an excellent culture fit in Utah.
