Hayward plans to sign with the Celtics

Postby Jackal on Wed Jul 05, 2017 4:26 am

Free-agent Gordon Hayward plans to sign with the Boston Celtics, league sources tell ESPN.

Source.

Sauru should be happy about this. Bunch of forwards now though, will Ainge ever flip some of his assets for something worthwhile?

Hayward reunites with Stevens, good for him. Shame he didn't return to the Jazz though, was nice seeing him along with Gobert.

Celtics/Cavs ECF or do the Raptors play a factor in that?

Trusting nothing until more people report it. See too many "Celtics not informed yet" "Hayward hasn't told Jazz yet" stuff.

remember when Boston's best forward was Jared Sullinger? it was only 2 years ago before Crowder really arrived

Shortly after the first wave of news broke, TNT’s David Aldridge reported that Hayward had not yet decided. His agent Mark Bartelstein went on record with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski saying the same. USA Today’s Sam Amick reported the Celtics were made aware of Hayward’s decision.

Probably smart indeed, guess we wait just a bit more for official word.

Now they just need a rangy defensive big like Anthony Davis to replace Al Horford and they are a legit contender...

Best part about this is that they didn't give up anything, still able to keep the healthy future with young guys and picks. Perhaps Ainge didn't offer anything serious for Butler and George to allow this to happen.

But I am not a fan of Celtics even though I kinda have been rooting for Hayward. So part of me want he turns out to be Chandler Parsons, disappearing after signing a contract. Fuck saur... I mean celtics.

I think there are some cap issues for this season. Either Bae or Bradley has to go on top of Kelly, Zeller, and the other UFAs iirc...and more will have to go next year.

Bring on the ring chasers!

Looks like Olynyk is running right out of town, though.

YeH I've heard reports they have to shed some salary to take on a max contract for Hayward. So who gets the axe? Smart?

This a good pickup obviously but is a little underwhelming since there was a chance to get bGeorge also.

Also as Jao said it's time to start consolidating soon.

Smart is an RFA next year, then IT & Bradley are UFAs.

Bradley is going to get paaaaaaaid, more than what he can get paid by staying, and I could see Smart getting a too-big-to-match offer. Paying IT is a given.

First all fuck the Celtics for releasing Kelly GOATlynyk.

Also happy that the NBA's best perimeter defender Avery Bradley is gone from that shithole team that released Olynyk.


Supposedly Hayward and his people 'officially' denied the early leak of him going to Boston just because his Players Tribune fluff piece wasn't ready yet.
Also rumored that he didn't contact any of his teammates after the official announcement, which led to that video of Gobert singing along to a song in the background about hoes not being loyal or something.
HE'S USING HYPNOSIS!

Hayward is painfully overrated. Plus, he'll always look and act like a Jazz player, which will limit his potential. You can try to escape the showerfun, but it will always be a part of you.

Hayward taking notes from Kevin Durant.

Not saying Gobert isn't entitled to feel that way, but to me that came across as being a little childish and petty in its own right.
