Free agent Gordon Hayward is signing a four-year, $120 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Saturday.

Hayward became a free agent Thursday after declining his player option with the Boston Celtics for next season.

He signed an offer sheet with Charlotte in 2014 as a restricted free agent, but the Utah Jazz matched the offer and kept him.

The Celtics have lost two max contract players in the past to free agency in the past two years -- Kyrie Irving and Hayward.

Tristan Thompson has agreed to a deal with the Boston Celtics, his agent told Yahoo Sports.

The Celtics also agreed with free-agent guard Jeff Teague on a one-year deal, his agent, JR Hensley, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Thompson leaves the Cavaliers after an eight-season run with Cleveland, which drafted him fourth overall in 2011. He endured highs and lows with the Cavaliers, capturing a title with LeBron James & Co. in 2016, only to be part of 38 combined wins with the team in the two years since James left for Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Lakers and C Marc Gasol are finalizing a two-year deal, according to reporting by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe. Gasol won a championship with the Toronto Raptors in 2019 and was originally a 2007 second-round pick by the Lakers before being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008 in a trade that brought his brother Pau Gasol to Los Angeles.

To clear room for Gasol, the Lakers are trading C JaVale McGee and a future second-round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for PF Jordan Bell and SF Alfonzo McKinnie
