Cue the Fireworks: Will the Celtics Sign Gordon Hayward?

Reports came out on Tuesday afternoon that Gordon Hayward had made his long-awaited free agency decision and would be heading to Boston.

Hayward emerged as an All-Star for the first time last season averaging 21.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists on 47.1 percent shooting from the field. He should step in and add an extra scoring punch to the Celtics offense.

Boston coach Brad Stevens coached Hayward at Butler and has a team coming off an Eastern Conference Finals appearance.

With that said, an interesting question still looms over the Celtics roster at the power forward position.




The Jazz's presentation lasted for nearly four hours and the Utah contingent presented an "excellent" case about why the All-Star small forward should continue his career in Utah, according to sources. In this scenario, Miami expected to focus on its own free agents with James Johnson and Dion Waiters still on the market.

Among the Celtics who celebrated the "decision" was point guard Isaiah Thomas. It appeared that Hayward would make his choice on Monday for much of the afternoon, but he later opted to sleep on it. But after playing his entire career with the Jazz, you know Utah fans are all hoping like Gobert that the star forward sticks around. Quite frankly, Amick's tweet does make me a little nervous if it is indeed the truth that Hayward was seriously leaning towards a team besides Utah prior to the meeting with the Jazz. Stevens coached Hayward for two seasons when he was at Butler, and they made it to the National Championship Game together back in 2010.

Hayward was said to be between the Celitcs, Miami Heat and his previous team the Utah Jazz.
