Gordon Hayward Signs $120 Million Contract With The Hornets

Gordon Hayward seemingly risked a whole lot of money earlier this week as he opted out of the final year of his contract with the Boston Celtics, which was worth $34 million. At the time, it seemed as though there was no chance Hayward would make anywhere close to that kind of money, especially considering his injury history. In the end, however, pundits and fans were dead wrong as Hayward just received a massive payday from the Charlotte Hornets.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Hayward’s new Hornets deal is worth $120 million over the next four years. This deal makes him one of the best players on this Hornets roster that added LaMelo Ball during the NBA draft.
