Gordon Hayward Sends Love and Support to Dak Prescott After Gruesome Injury

Gordon Hayward bet on himself and won big.

As first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hornets have agreed to a four-year, $120 million contract with Hayward. The deal was confirmed by Hayward’s agent Mark Bartelstein.

Shortly after signing his new deal, Hayward sent a heartfelt message to the city of Boston and Celtics fans.

“To the city of Boston, thank you for embracing me as your own these last 3 years. I cannot say thank you enough to all the fans, my teammates, coaches and everyone in the organization I built such strong relationships with,” Hayward wrote. “I know there were some ups and downs, but I will always cherish my experience in Boston. I am forever grateful that I was given the opportunity to wear a Celtics uniform and play in front of the Garden faithful.”

Hayward averaged 18.8 points and 7.2 rebounds last season for Boston. Expect him to be a focal point of Charlotte’s offense. Hayward never found his place in Boston behind Jason Tatum and Jalen Brown.

Now with the Hornets, Hayward should be the first option and with a reloaded roster including the recently drafted LaMelo Ball, the Hornets should be competing for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
