Gordon Hayward reportedly told the Utah Jazz on Thursday that he is opting out of his contract to become a free agent.

ESPN first reported Hayward’s decision and will be free to meet with teams starting July 1.

Hayward has scheduled meetings with the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics and the Jazz.

Boston has reportedly hoped to sign Hayward and acquire Paul George from the Indiana Pacers simultaneously.
