Report: NBA free agents ‘annoyed’ by Gordon Hayward saga

NBA free agency features a very predictable domino effect. Many of the players looking for new deals have to wait for the top guys to sign before they’ll get a chance. This is exactly what’s happening right now. After news broke that Gordon Hayward would be signing with the Celtics, Celtics nation got excited, including Isaiah Thomas.

However, not long after that suddenly everyone had to hit the breaks, and hard.

It’s not exactly fair to criticize Gordon Hayward. But his drawn-out decision to maybe/maybe not sign with the Boston Celtics is keeping other players from landing deals.

And according to a couple of NBA insiders, this isn’t sitting well with Hayward’s peers.

Now, as we already mentioned, it’s not exactly fair to criticize Hayward. He’s about to make a life-altering decision that will create a ripple affect in his personal life, and in the NBA in general. He really shouldn’t rush to make a decision like this.

On the other hand it’s easy to understand why other free agents are frustrated.

This will all blow over soon, and we doubt there will be any permanent hard feelings from anyone who’s annoyed right now with Hayward.

However, this does amplify just how crazy NBA free agency can be. So many lives are affected in the blink of an eye, and there is plenty of stress to go around while uncertainty lingers.
