SALT LAKE CITY — Many Utahns shared their reactions to the Jazz trading away Rodney Hood and Joe Johnson Thursday, but one young fan’s heartbreak prompted a response from Joe Ingles.

A video posted to Twitter by user @Kerdaddy shows 5-year-old Skyler Kerwin breaking into tears upon learning Johnson, her favorite player, is no longer with the Utah Jazz.

The girl’s distress struck a chord with Joe Ingles, who retweeted the video along with an offer to buy Skyler a jersey of her choice “ASAP”.
