In a conversation with Sam Amick of The Athletic, Gordon Hayward talked about the teams he considered in free agency.
“Atlanta was a team I was interested in. They are a team with very talented players. I also considered New York. Indiana was a other team interested and this was mutual. I admit that I also wanted to go back to Boston. There were many options for me, but the main ones were Atlanta, New York, Boston, Indiana and then Charlotte of course. “
Gordon Hayward eventually signed a four-year $ 120 million deal with the Hornets.
