Boston Celtics Rumor: Utah Jazz Worried They Are Going To Lose Gordon Hayward
Boston Celtics fans are still in pursuit of Utah Jazz free agent Gordon Hayward. And according the reports the Jazz are feeling the pressure right now.
A. Sherrod Blakely says the Utah Jazz have “a strong sense” that Gordon Hayward may leave via free agency so they are “afraid of anyone and everyone.”
“I’ve talked to people around Gordon and they’re not sure exactly what he’s thinking,” A. Sherrod Blakely explained on Sports Sunday. “The Celtics are the team that everyone is talking about, the biggest threat. But the folks in Utah are afraid of anyone and everyone who is sniffing at Gordon because they have a strong sense that he may leave, and there’s nothing they can do about it.”
Many have speculated that Hayward would be open with a reunion with Brad Stevens who was his head coach back in his Butler days. But what Hayward is thinking or leaning to is a complete unknown despite his wife posting a picture with his daughter wearing a “Celtics” shirt until it was quickly taken down.
