One key member of the Boston Celtics will likely be leaving New England before the start of the 2020-21 NBA season.
It’s rumored that swingman Gordon Hayward will soon be on the move.

Hayward had been one of the league’s better two-way wings for several years. In 2017 he was a prized free agent after a very strong All-Star season with the Utah Jazz.
The Celtics signed him to a large contract, but he suffered a horrific foot injury in the team’s 2017-18 season-opener and missed the rest of the campaign.
He had a strong bounce-back performance this past season, but again got hurt in the playoffs and only returned for the Eastern Conference Finals.
