Surprised, even if these last hours we felt it coming, Shams reports that Gordon Hayward has decided to decline his player option of $ 34 million!
He will therefore be free agent and it is rumored that the Knicks would be interested, just like the Hawks. The two teams are the ones with the most cap space and could offer him a big contract.
In recent days there was a lot of speculation as the Celtics and Hayward had agreed to extend the deadline for his decision on the player option. There has of course been speculation about a sign & trade. His will seems clear, to leave the Celtics where since his arrival and his broken leg, it has been very, very complicated.
