Chris Haynes of ESPN reported Gordon Hayward will sign with the Celtics. Two other credible reporters – Sam Amick of USA Today and Zach Lowe of ESPN – confirmed.

But Hayward’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said the choice has not yet been made.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald:

My strong hunch: Hayward wanted to inform the Jazz before the public and is now claiming he hasn’t decided so he still can (or at least pretend to).

But it’s also possible Hayward just hasn’t decided.

Either way, this leaves the door open for Hayward to pick any of Utah, Boston or Miami. Even if he already chose the Celtics and word leaked before he was ready, he could always change his mind.
