Hayward announced his intentions to sign with the Celtics on July 4 and the team officially announced their pact (reportedly a four-year, $128 million deal) 10 days later, but never held an introductory press conference.

But now we can finally see Hayward wearing Celtics green, and boy does it look great. Now we wait another few weeks for him to hit the floor with Isaiah Thomas, Al Horford and the rest of his new teammates.
