Gordon Hayward picks Boston, signs max deal with Celtics

Sunday, the Celtics were taking Hayward to the Fenway Park, where the Red Sox were hosting the Toronto Blue Jays.

Nearly immediately after Haynes' report, fellow ESPN NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted word from Hayward's agent saying the 27-year-old hadn't made a decision yet.

The Salt Lake City Tribune's Tony Jones added to the report, saying that the Jazz traded for Rubio specifically with Hayward in mind.

However, if Hayward does leave Utah, there's no doubting that Jazz fans will be more upset by the news than Heat or Celtics fans will be if he stays.

Hayward hasn't yet informed the Jazz he has made a decision to sign with Boston, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

All-Star swingman Gordon Hayward has elected to rejoin his collegiate coach by agreeing to sign with the Boston Celtics, ESPN reported on Tuesday. So yeah, he timed his breakthrough season well to align with free agency.

The 27-year-old had his best year this past season, averaging nearly 22 points a game while shooting 47 percent from the floor and nearly 40 percent from the three-point line.

She said the SNP leader was "in denial" and "leaking credibility and confidence in her leadership by the hour". Scottish first minister says people are exhausted of "making political decisions".

The story of Hayward and Stevens goes back years, of course.

Boston Celtics All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas likely will not require surgery on the injured hip that ended his season, according to coach Brad Stevens.

But Hayward to Boston changes everything, with the Celtics now primed to push the Cavs team that has reached the Finals in three consecutive Junes since James' return from Miami.

And there's also the fact that Hayward might just be indecisive.

With seven years of experience in the league, he'll bring that to a talented Celtics roster that has young developing players and other veterans.

Boston's big-name commitment on the free agent market is the team's second in as many years.
