Boston Celtics Rumor: Report Saying Hayward Will Sign With C’s Likely False
Just a day after Gordon Hayward met with Boston Celtics brass we are hearing murmurings on how “well” the meeting went.
A report is now circulating itself around NBA Twitter alleging that Hayward has already decided on signing with the Celtics. The direct text posted is below.
In a new report from a NBA insider, Gordon Hayward will meet with the Utah Jazz today to inform them that he will be signing with the Boston Celtics. Hayward was “wowed” with the 9 hour presentation in Boston, and will likely sign a 4-year deal worth roughly $130M.
Take it for what it’s worth, but this same source correctly reported the Paul Millsap signing to Denver 2 full hours before it actually happened.
This report is false, at this time no decision has been made by Hayward who has been meeting with the Utah Jazz team in his own home out in San Diego.
Hayward is expected to take a few days to mull over the offers and make a final decision. The three teams he is choosing between are the Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics, and the Utah Jazz, don’t be surprised if a team a mystery team flies in either.
