Hayward opted out of his $34.2 million player option with the Celtics and could look to sign elsewhere, or ultimately choose to sign a restructured deal and stay in Boston.
It’s expected that the four options previously listed (Pacers, Knicks, Hawks, or re-sign with Celtics) will be what it comes down to for Hayward, barring a new team showing interest in him.
