Boston Celtics fans have been waiting for a while to know whether Gordon Hayward would opt into his contract or become a free agent.

And it appears the latter prevailed.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Thursday that Hayward opted out of his $34.2 million contract with the Celtics. He now can test the free agent market.

Plenty of rumors swirled once Boston and the 30-year-old decided to extend the deadline from Tuesday at 5 p.m. ET to Thursday at the same time.

While the C’s still can re-sign Hayward, there’s always the possibility of him going elsewhere.

And Twitter had plenty to say about the news:
