There is still a very real chance that Hayward is done with the Celtics. And there is a very real chance he leaves town and the Celtics are left with nothing to show for it.



That would be a massive disappointment, since Hayward is a darn good player and the Celtics are better when he’s on the team. Injuries have derailed his three-year run in Boston, but when he’s healthy, he is a do-everything player that helps Brad Stevens’ system go.
