The Boston Celtics made their pitch to Gordon Hayward, and now all they can do is wait.
The C’s courted the free-agent swingman Sunday in Boston during a visit that had coach Brad Stevens, president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and star Isaiah Thomas involved in the pitch to the talented forward.
Hayward now will head to San Diego to meet with his incumbent club, the Utah Jazz, according to The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn.
After Hayward meets with the Jazz, who can offer him the most money as the incumbent team, he is expected to make his choice between the Celtics, Jazz and Miami Heat within a few days.
Hayward would fit nicely alongside Thomas, as the Celtics are in need of another scorer who can take some pressure off the All-Star guard .
He averaged 21.9 points per game last season while shooting 47 percent from the field and 39 percent from 3-point range.
