Gordon Hayward expressed disappointment over his limited role with the Oklahoma City Thunder following their playoff exit after a Game 6 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

“Disappointing with how it all kind of worked out. Certainly frustrating,” Hayward said, per Joel Lorenzi. “I feel as a player, I have a lot to offer. Just wasn’t really given much of an opportunity to do that. I thought I would be given that opportunity.”

Hayward, who joined the Thunder at the trade deadline, averaged 5.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 17.2 minutes per game over 26 regular-season appearances.

His role diminished significantly during the playoffs, with his playing time reduced to 6.6 minutes per game and no points scored.

Hayward’s four-year, $120 million contract is set to expire, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The 34-year-old veteran had hoped for a more substantial role and a chance to contribute to the team’s playoff run.
