After announcing that he will no longer play for the Utah Jazz in July and committing to a 4 year max deal worth $128 million dollars to sign with the Boston Celtics. Gordon Hayward suffered a broken leg during his debut as a Celtic.
The horrific scene happened while Hayward was trying to connect with an alley-oop dunk which he has done plenty of times in a Jazz jersey. Whether you were one of the many who hated the fact that he left our team here in Utah, I do hope for the best for Gordon. His contract with the Boston Celtics includes $29.7 million first-year salary.
Here is the video of the injury as it happened. *Warning Graphic Content*
