Gordon Hayward has a call to make on future with Celtics

Gordon Hayward Boston Celtics Gordon Hayward Expected to Draw Significant Interest If He Reaches Free Agency
Noah Ferguson | 20 November, 2020, 16:49

Boston Celtics wing Gordon Hayward will opt out of the final year of his deal, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

NY has the salary cap space to sign Hayward, and they could still pursue him even if he picks up his $34 million player option for the 2020-21 season.

Obviously, turning down $34.2 million in the final year of a contract is a surprising move.

If Hayward were to be interested in moving on, the New York Knicks have reportedly had interest in his services, according to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer. "Hayward and his agent Mark Bartelstein, they're not going to opt out of $34 million unless they're as sure as they can be that there's another deal out there". Unfortunately, Hayward struggled with a few more injuries last season which forced him to miss a chunk of Boston's playoff games in the Bubble. Things started off terribly when he injured his left leg in the first six minutes of playing in a Celtics jersey after signing a huge four-year deal with the team in 2017.

Gordon Hayward has reached one important contract decision. By delaying the deadline, both Hayward and the Celtics have more flexibility as they move through this unusually busy week.

Hayward's decision could come sooner rather than later with National Basketball Association free agency beginning on Friday.
