According to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald, unrestricted free agent Gordon Hayward will be visiting the Boston Celtics after July 1.
In addition to Boston, Hayward will also meet with the Miami Heat and Utah Jazz, the latter of which he has played the entirety of his seven year NBA career for. The former Butler Bulldog will visit Miami, Boston, and Utah in that order. However, the sequence of Hayward’s meetings mean nothing according to Basketball Insiders’ Steve Kyler.
I was told to not read too much into Gordan Hayward meeting with the HEAT first, he does plan to visit each market and team before deciding.
