Report: Gordon Hayward ‘Could End Up In Miami’ Next Season

by April 03, 2017

It’s never too early to think about free agency and rumors are starting to swirl in regards to where Gordon Hayward will play next season. The Celtics are thought to be a contender, based on the relationship between Hayward and Brad Stevens, who coached the All-Star at Butler and now the Heat are reportedly in play.

More from the New York Daily News’ Frank Isola:

Pat Riley has a home court advantage because Miami is a prime free agent destination. The weather, the zero state income tax and the chance to play for a top franchise are too good for a lot of players to turn down. There are already whispers that if Utah can’t re-sign Gordon Hayward he could end up in Miami.

Hayward will almost certainly sign a max deal this summer after a career year that saw him make his first All-Star game and lead the Jazz back to the playoffs for the first time since 2012.
