Basketball has been nothing but good to Gordon Hayward, who signed a four-year, 128-million dollar deal with the Boston Celtics in July.
The 27-year-old had spent the previous seven seasons with the Utah Jazz, but Hayward learned a whole new meaning of the word “success” last year.
In 2016-17, Hayward averaged a career-high 21.9 points per game and was selected by coaches to represent the Western Conference in the NBA All-Star Game. He became a superstar in that final year in Utah, and he’ll now take his talents elsewhere.
But basketball isn’t Hayward's only passion. The 6’8’’, 226-pound forward has always had a soft spot for tennis, which he discussed in-depth with Tennis Channel’s Jon Wertheim.
