Report: Al Horford, Isaiah Thomas fly to Boston for Gordon Hayward meeting
With the Celtics missing out on both Blake Griffin and Paul George, and with the Heat considered the new favorites to land Gordon Hayward, the Celtics, out of necessity, are pulling out the big guns for Sunday’s meeting with the 27-year-old Hayward.
That includes last year’s max addition in 6-foot-10 Celtics big man Al Horford.
Initially spotted at Logan Airport by a fan that shared a flight with Horford, the Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach then confirmed with Horford’s mother (there’s a sentence I didn’t think I would type today) that Horford had indeed flown to Boston to be there, along with Celtics star Isaiah Thomas, for tomorrow’s pitch to Hayward.
The Celtics, of course, pulled out the big guns — including Patriots quarterback Tom Brady — for last year’s pitch to Kevin Durant, which came up just short.
Horford and Thomas are a start in an effort to woo Hayward, and it makes sense as they would be the other two parts of the Big Three that the Celtics would hope to create by signing Hayward.
