Hayward, 30, has spent the past three seasons with the Celtics after signing a reported four-year, $128 million contract in July of 2017. He began his career with the Utah Jazz, whom he spent the first seven seasons of his career with.
Hayward, who was named an all-star in 2017, has averaged 15.3 points and 4.4 rebounds over his 10 seasons in the NBA.
Bucks moving on from Bogdanovic
The Milwaukee Bucks are moving on from Bogdan Bogdanovic, who elected to pursue restricted free agency over a sign-and-trade to Milwaukee this week.
ESPN reported Thursday that the NBA is investigating whether the failed sign-and-trade agreement happened earlier than league rules allow, sources confirmed to ESPN.
Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 29 minutes per game with the Sacramento Kings last season.
SUPERMAX FOR GIANNIS?
With the legal tampering windowing opening at 6pm et tonight, the Milwaukee Bucks can formally offer Giannis Antetokounmpo a five-year supermax contract extension worth $230 million.
The window to sign it closes Dec. 21.
The 25-year-old Antetokounmpo became the first player to win back-to-back regular season MVP awards since Steph Curry did it in 2015-16 and just the 14th player in league history to achieve the feat.
The Greece native led the Bucks to the league’s best record at 53-12 prior to the March shutdown and he led the Bucks in almost all major categories, including points (29.8), rebounds (13.7) and assists (5.7) per game.
The four-time all-star has seen an uptick in production every season he’s been in the league as his points and rebounds per game have been higher every season than the year prior.
