Quantcast

Two of the newest Celtics have wasted no time in getting to know each other as Gordon Hayward and Semi Ojeleye have been working out together in San Diego. Hayward's personal trainer posted a photo of the three of them in the gym:


A funny combination for sure as Hayward, a 7-year NBA vet, was the Celtics prized free agency grab and Ojeleye was a merely a 2nd-round draft pick this summer, albeit a steal where the C's were able to nab him. It does seem like the Celtics are excited about the potential of Semi, as he inked a 4-year deal that's nearly fully guaranteed through year 2.

Hayward's trainer, Jason Smeathers, is the same guy who lit a firestorm after Gordon left his free agency visit in Boston by following a bunch of notable Celtics players on Instagram. I'm sure Red Auerbach is rolling in his grave that NBA news sometimes comes from a device in your pocket where you 'like' pictures of other people and write mean comments to celebrities and athletes.

Anyway, pretty cool that these guys are getting some run together during the offseason. They'll both be fresh faces in Boston, but Ojeleye has had the opportunity to play with some of the other younger guys in summer league already. It's gonna be interesting to see how quickly the new C's roster will gel with only 6 players returning from last season, but this is a good indication that two of the new faces are already working together.
