For the Celtics to make the upgrade that is Gordon Hayward to their roster — and make no mistake, he is an upgrade — there were going to be cap casualties to make room. Avery Bradley was one, heading to Detroit.
Kelly Olynyk was the first one. He landed on his feet just fine, Miami jumped in with a four-year, $50 million offer to the sharp-shooting big man.
On his way out the door, Olynyk wanted to thank the fans in Boston for the support.
And I think he’s going to like Miami.
