Gordon Hayward has decided to leave the Utah Jazz and join the Boston Celtics.
Some of his new teammates took to social media to welcome him to the Green Team.

Hayward's wife, Robyn posted an image on Instagram saying she is ready for the new adventure with her husband.
I'm excited to go on this adventure with this man! It's bittersweet leaving where we've called home and grown our family, but I'm excited to see where this path takes us! We are so grateful for everything Utah has done for us! ❤️ Also, as for all the mean comments and threats. Don't forget athletes are humans too. Treat others how you would like to be treated. It would never cross my mind to speak so negatively and so full of hate about oneself or their family.
The Twitter account of Hayward's former team also made a statement with a single tweet. . . but deleted it shortly after.
The account turned around and thanked Hayward in another tweet.
