Gordon Hayward signs 4-year, maximum deal with Celtics

Gordon Hayward signs 4-year, maximum deal with Celtics

Hayward did not inform Gobert or other teammates before announcing that he was leaving for Boston.

While Gordon Hayward led the team with 24.1 points a game, George Hill, Joe Johnson, and Rudy Gobert all scored in double-digits as well and Gobert led the team with 9.9 rebounds and 1.33 blocks a game.

The Jazz were left in limbo for the six hours between the time that ESPN's Chris Haynes broke the news that Hayward meant to sign with the Celtics and Hayward publicly announced the decision to leave the Jazz with an essay published on The Players' Tribune.

"We get to Boston, it's late at night and my wife and I are greeted at the terminal by Brad (Stevens, the C's coach and Hayward's former mentor at Butler) and coach Shrews (Micah Shrewsberry), and it's immediate familiarity and comfort". Offseason for us guys is precious time, precious moments, so for them to show up was really cool for me. A report by ESPN confirms that the two sides have finally signed the max contract which will pay Gordon roughly $128 million over the next four National Basketball Association seasons.

With a 52-seat majority and Democrats unanimously lined up against the legislation, Republicans can not afford another defection. Collins strongly disagreed in an interview Sunday with CNN .

Allen, who still enjoys a comfortable cushion as the NBA's all-time leading three-point shooter, stayed with the Celtics for four seasons and saw two NBA Finals appearances with Boston before being bounced from the 2012 playoffs by LeBron's Miami Heat.

Hayward stressed his versatility and the fact that will be a strength of the Celtics next season.

"Once I finally made the decision it was like, five minutes, finish it up and we're ready to go. We're going to show people that we're a good team". Boston fans have seen players like Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Pablo Sandoval and David Price get overwhelmed with playing in Boston and the expectations that come with big contracts. rewarded with huge Hayward expressed his humility in his first address with the Boston media, something that should make fans forget the aforementioned Red Sox players. I think it's going to be a great fit. "He's a very unselfish player that's multi-faceted, multi-positional and fits in great with what we're trying to do". He can play 1 through 4 positions. He can defend multiple positions.

"We went out to eat with Al for breakfast, went out to eat with Isaiah and his wife for dinner, so I'm more than ecstatic to play with those guys". I think Marcus is another versatile player that brings an element of toughness to our team that we're very excited about.
