The Celtics got their man.

Gordon Hayward, the prize of this summer's free-agent class, announced today that he's going to play for the Celtics, choosing their maximum-contract offer over those from the Utah Jazz, his team since 2010.

The 6-foot-8 small forward has agreed to a four-year, $128 million deal, according to sources. The deal also includes a player option for the final year, sources said, which would allow Hayward to return to free agency with 10 years of NBA service when he could pursue another big-money contract and command a starting salary at 35 percent of the salary cap.

The 27-year-old Hayward stressed in the 2,000-word article that his comfort and familiarity with his former college coach, Brad Stevens, was a deciding factor in his joining the Celtics. 

Welcome to Boston, Gordon!
