Gordon Hayward had enough time to think about his future in the NBA after being eliminated against the Miami Heat, but it wasn’t enough. So when the Boston Celtics made the request to delay the decision, the outlook was not looking good for the franchise and everything indicated that we had already attended Gordon’s last game in Boston.

However, once the player showed his intentions to leave, the second negotiation became to offer her a contract for several years, an issue that has not been defined.

Meanwhile, It was revealed that the forward’s favorite fate resides in the Indiana Pacers, but so is the Charlotte Hornets with Michael Jordan leading the way.
