Gordon Hayward: ‘Probably smarter’ to Leave West for East

In an extended interview about his free-agency process, All-Star forward and new Celtic Gordon Hayward visted with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski to discuss the courtships of Boston, Utah and Miami in a wide-ranging visit on The Woj Pod, released on Monday afternoon.

On leaving the Western Conference for the East:

“When we’re going through this process and you keep seeing some of the big-name guys and it’s like, the West is loading up more and more and more, it’s not something where, like, I’m going to go East just so I don’t have to play them, ’cause you don’t want to run from competition at all. That’s not how I am. But there is a sense that it’s probably a smarter thing as far as you’re not going to have to battle it out with all these teams just to make it to the second round, make it to the third round, giving yourself a better chance against a Golden State. So it definitely crosses your mind, 100 percent.

Steve Kerr: Warriors Operating like Andre Iguodala Out for Game 7

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala sat out Game 6 of the Western Conference finals over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night in Oakland, California, and his ability to suit up for Game 7 on Monday is in doubt, as well.

Speaking after the Warriors’ 115-86 win, coach Steve Kerr cast doubt on whether the veteran forward will play in the decisive Game 7 in Houston.

“We’re operating under the assumption that he will not play, but he is literally day-to-day,” Kerr said. “It’s a bone bruise, there’s not sort of a timetable, it’s more just up to the individual and how he’s feeling, and we don’t really know. So we’ll just keep taking it day by day and see what happens.”

Kevin Love will not play in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ decisive Game 7 on Sunday against the Boston Celtics, as the All-Star forward has been placed in the concussion protocol.

The Cavaliers announced that Love is experiencing concussion-like symptoms after his collision with the Celtics’ Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Friday’s game.

Just before the team’s announcement, confusion had reigned over Love’s status. Coach Tyronn Lue initially stated during a conference call that Love was in the concussion protocol. He then backtracked after further questioning to say that Love was still being evaluated and that he didn’t know about the protocol process or whether Love would go into it.
