Utah's centerpiece player is headed to Boston.
According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Gordon Hayward is inking a deal with the Boston Celtics.https://twitter.com/_/status/882302263519326208
Hayward had spent the last seven seasons with the Utah Jazz, a team he led to the second round of the NBA playoffs this spring, before losing to the eventual champions, the Golden State Warriors.https://twitter.com/_/status/882303104556969984
The move reunites Hayward with his college coach Brad Stevens, who used to helm the men's basketball team at Butler. Known for his all-around game and ability to stretch the defense with his shooting range, Hayward will be a talented addition to a Celtics' corp that already included stars like Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford. The former seemingly tweeted his response to the Hayward signing earlier as well.https://twitter.com/_/status/882303399345172482
