Gordon Hayward Has Scheduled Meetings With Teams, Boston Included
One of the top free agents in the NBA, Gordon Hayward, has reportedly scheduled interviews with three teams. The teams are the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, and the Utah Jazz.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Hayward is scheduled to meet with all three teams when free agency begins, starting with the Heat on Saturday and then the Jazz on Monday.
Technically his day with Boston will happen after the Jazz meeting on 7/3. It was being reported by Keith Smith that Hayward would meet with the Celtics on Sunday 7/3, but it turned out that there hasn’t been a meeting date set. The theory is it won’t happen on July 4th given it is a holiday. But one can’t be too certain of that.
Even though it looks like Boston will have the last interview at the moment, it is still highly likely that Hayward meets with Utah again before he makes a decision.
Right now the Celtics title odds are at 28/1, which is the fourth best odds in the NBA behind the Spurs, Cavs, and the Warriors. If a Hayward signing or a trade for George takes place, the chances of those odds rising are immense.
