Gordon Hayward agrees to shoe contract with Anta; Nike can still match

Although it was reported by NBC Sports Boston’s A. Sherrod Blakey that the Celtics’ small forward was nearing a multi-year agreement with Nike, according to ESPN’s Nick DePaula, Gordon Hayward has agreed to a four-year sneaker and apparel offer sheet with Anta.



In addition to Nike, it was reported in August that Anta and New Balance were interested in signing the one-time All-Star.

Nike will have 10 business days to exercise the “match clause” in their current deal with Hayward.

Should Nike not choose to do so and let Hayward walk, he joins a brand in Anta that includes Golden State Warriors’ guard Klay Thompson, who signed a 10-year deal with the brand last year, boxer Manny Pacquiao and Lakers’ guard Rajon Rondo.
