Hayward, 30, will test free agency after three seasons with the Celtics. Injuries starting off from his debut in Boston limited him to 139 games in that stretch. He never really got things going after his successful 7-year run with the Utah Jazz.
His unexpected move will likely see him sign a new contract as a free agent with the Celtics or elsewhere at a much lower wage. Most teams will be conservative in the market due to the coronavirus pandemic and salary-cap restrictions.
