Boston Celtics Rumor: Al Horford And Isaiah Thomas To Meet Gordon Hayward On Sunday
Hayward is set to meet with the Celtics delegation in Boston on Sunday and there will be at least two members of the team there.
Initially spotted at Logan Airport by a fan that shared a flight with Horford, the Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach then confirmed with Horford’s mother (there’s a sentence I didn’t think I would type today) that Horford had indeed flown to Boston to be there, along with Celtics star Isaiah Thomas, for tomorrow’s pitch to Hayward.
Horford and Thomas are a start in an effort to impress Hayward. They will likely sell him on the new era big three that he would create with them.
Hayward and his team will likely question the health of Thomas with IT dealing with a lingering injury that caused him to miss the last few games of the playoffs.
Ainge will be present as well, and it is also likely that Wyc Grousbeck (team owner) and Brad Stevens (head coach) will be there as well.
