Gordon Hayward Officially Signs Contract with Boston Celtics

Finally, the hunt is over. "I'm blown away with the presentation and everything about the Boston Celtics".

"[Hayward is] a good fit because he's just a complete player", said Ainge. Ainge wondered whether maybe it would work against the Celtics as they tried to lure Hayward from the Utah Jazz.

Joseph, who is 6-foot-3, averaged 9.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists last season. As hard as it was, the 27-year-old was drawn to the Celtics' organization. "And I'm getting, like, I'm looking at my phone, I'm getting blown up, (people) saying I'd made a decision to become a Boston Celtic".

Hayward did not inform Gobert or other teammates before announcing that he was leaving for Boston. He is enamored by the Celtics' rich tradition. There was Brad Stevens, his old college head coach, and Micah Shrewsberry, a lovable assistant. The pair helped guide the Bulldogs on a Cinderella-run in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, which ended in a gut-wrenching, 61-59 loss to Duke in the National Championship Game. But Boston probably wouldn't have a 21st century National Basketball Association title if it weren't for Allen.

"It's not just about me coming here to help him", Paul said.

"People are going to be surprised by how we do this year", Gobert said Saturday. The goal is still the same: win a championship in the close future. And it speaks to his reputation that the Celtics have signed Horford and Hayward in successive summers while also earning an audience with Kevin Durant a year ago.

Last season, the Celtics had the top regular season record in the Eastern Conference. "They did a hell of a job past year and got to the Eastern Conference finals, No. 1 seed in the East".

Nationals Trade Blake Treinen And Prospects For Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle
Perhaps even more important for the Nationals is that Madson and Doolittle won't be half-season rentals. This appears more appropriate for the 36-year-old who now owns a 2.06 ERA through almost 40 innings.

During the pitch, Stevens showed Hayward all the ways he could thrive in Boston and explained how the coaching staff would use all of the versatile players the Celtics have acquired.

"Gordon is a guy that in a lot of situations is the primary ball handler and can play that way", said Stevens. And Isaiah (Thomas) was there and Al Horford was there. However, Gobert would not acknowledge that the video was a shot at Hayward's perceived disloyalty.

"You can not be mad at somebody for wanting to play for another team", Gobert told ESPN while watching the Jazz's summer league team in Las Vegas. Hayward's scoring ability should ease the pressure off of IT, while creating a more well-rounded and less predictable offensive attack.

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

Prior to last summer, Boston was not considered to be a primary free agent destination.

The Utah Jazz did pretty much everything right over the past four years in building a playoff contender.

The Celtics also had the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, which they traded for the third pick — Duke forward Jayson Tatum — and another first-rounder, likely next year. They weren't going take a step back.
