According to NBA reporter Sean Deveney, front-office executives say they expect Gordon Hayward to opt into his player option for next season. 

Hayward has had a solid bounce-back season in 2019-20, averaging 17.3 points (on 50.2% shooting), 6.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists. He has a player option worth $34 million for 2020-21, the final year on the free-agent deal he signed with Boston in 2017. According to his contract, he has until June 29 to inform the Celtics whether he is opting in or not, but those dates are expected to be pushed back. "It's too much money to pass up," one general manager told "He could get a longer deal if that is what he really wants. But I don't think the Celtics want to give it to him, they have a lot of young guys to pay and the starting (salary) number on whatever the contract is will not be close to $34 million. He can opt-in this year and then take a big contract next year." Mar 28 9:55 am (EST)
