Report: Gordon Hayward Plans to Sign With Celtics

Gordon Hayward is reportedly leaving Utah.

The All-Star forward plans to sign with the Celtics, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

He will reunite with Boston head coach Brad Stevens -- who coached Hayward at Butler.

The Jazz selected Hayward with the ninth overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Hayward averaged career-highs in points (21.9) and rebounds (5.4) last season.

He shot over 47 percent from the field and just under 40 percent from deep.

In Games 2-4 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Warriors, Hayward averaged 24.8 points and 4.3 assists.
