In a report by Fox news and Cbs sports, former Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward has agreed to rejoin his former Butler University coach Brad Stevens and be the newest member of the Boston Celtics.
This move gives them a quality forward who can fill the stat sheet and moves them closer to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have been a bust so far in free agency.
Hayward now fits with PG Isaiah Thomas, PF Al Horford and rookie Jason Tatum to give them more impact on offense. Avery Bradley is still one of the better wing defenders on defense and can also add some scoring. With a handful of quality role players on the bench and a lot of draft picks over the next coming years, there is a foreseeable future on the horizon with this roster.
I bet there are a lot of happy people at cookouts today in the New England area!
