Gordon Hayward's massive Hornets contract has NBA Twitter stunned
NBA Twitter rips MJ over Hayward's huge Hornets deal, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
That came from the left field, right?
The Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks appeared to be the top two candidates for Gordon Hayward after he turned down his $ 34.2 million option with the Boston Celtics to become a free agent.
On Saturday, however, the veteran striker agreed to a four-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets worth a whopping $ 120 million per agent.
That's a huge sum to pay Hayward, considering he turned 30 in March and sustained several significant injuries in Boston. Which begs the question: what does Hornet's owner Michael Jordan think?
Jordan got a lot of heat on Twitter on Saturday from NBA fans and analysts wondering the same thing.
The Hornets don't have the ability to sign Hayward directly, so they'll likely need to work out a sign and bargain with Boston to get the veteran forward, plus do more roster maneuvers in addition.
Hayward should improve Charlotte in the short term and it's possible Jordan has more moves up his sleeve. But at the moment it looks like a head scratch for the Hornets.
