Gordon Hayward has reportedly found a new NBA home. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the veteran striker signs a four-year $ 120 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets. Hayward had a player option for $ 34. 1 million with the Boston Celtics for the 2020-21 NBA season, which he declined in favor of the free agency earlier this week. To make way for Hawyard’s new deal, the Hornets will forego Nic Batum, according to Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer.
Charlotte will be Haywards’ third NBA home after stints at Jazz and Celtics. Charlotte’s interest in Hayward isn’t exactly new, as he signed an offer sheet with the Hornets as a restricted free agent in 2014, but the Jazz ultimately matched the offer and kept it in Utah. Hayward signed a four-year $ 128 million deal with the Celtics in 2017. The Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks were also reportedly interested in signing Hayward.
Hayward, 30, has worked continuously to regain his strength after sustaining a devastating ankle injury at the end of the season in his first game with the Celtics in October. 2017. After Hayward had only played 18 games in the 2018/19 season, he started in all 52 games of the regular season, which he played with the Celtics last season. He played an average of almost nine minutes longer per game and increased his average per game by six points (from 11). 5 to 17. 5). Unfortunately, another postseason ankle injury limited Hayward to just five games, but he was able to return for Boston’s conference finals against Miami.
There has been some speculation that Hayward might stay in Boston for a new deal, but that has always been unlikely as Boston is already well established thanks to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. In Charlotte, Hayward will play a bigger role, and he’s quickly becoming one of the faces of a franchise that lost star player Kemba Walker to the free agency last off-season. In addition to Hayward, the Hornets also have a lot of young talent, including Devonte ‘Graham, Miles Bridges, P. . J. . Washington and LaMelo Ball, the third overall pick from the 2020 NBA draft.
