Gordon Hayward addresses Celtics, Hornets fans after free-agent signing
Hayward addresses C's fans and responds to the signing with Hornets, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Gordon Hayward's wife was the first to speak on Saturday, but the veteran striker wasn't far behind.
Hayward posted a message to Boston Celtics fans on Twitter after signing a four-year $ 120 million deal with the Hornets on Saturday.
The veteran striker admitted having had some "ups and downs" in Boston, where he sustained a serious leg injury on his Celtics debut and missed a total of 121 regular season games over three seasons.
Hayward played his best basketball during his final C season, averaging 17.5 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game in 2019-20 to help Boston reach the Eastern Conference Finals.
Report: Why Hornets Don't Need a Sign or Trade to Land Hayward
It seemed unlikely that the 30-year-old would return to the Celtics as the fourth option behind Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker. But few expected Hayward to sign with the Hornets after turning down his $ 34.2 million player option for 2020-21.
Hayward almost signed with Charlotte in 2014 before Utah met the Hornets' bid sheet, and he seems quite excited about traveling to Buzz City.
We'd imagine a guaranteed $ 120 million add to his excitement.
