Gordon Hayward could opt out of his current contract with the Boston Celtics in search for a long-term deal, per Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Hayward has a $34M player option for the next season and if he picks it, he will remain with Boston.

“I think what his agent Mark Bartelstein is doing right now is canvassing the league. He’s doing the Al Horford plan,” Bobby Marks added, via John Karalis of MassLive.com.

Horford decided to part ways with the Celtics and join the Philadelphia 76ers on a four-year deal.
