Does anybody know? Been looking forward to hearing from him and all the newly acquired players (Morris and Baynes) but have yet to see anything finalized. Any information/updates would be wonderful. Thanks!

It cannot occur until after he is signed, which cannot occur until after Jordan Mickey is released or Demetrius Jackson is traded.  Their contracts fully guarantee on Saturday, so expect one of them to be moved before then, and for Hayward to be signed and introduced shortly thereafter.  My guess is Friday, from Vegas.

It's possible that Morris and Baynes will be introduced then as well, but my guess is they'll have a separate press conference in the middle of next week in Boston.

Why not do all three in Boston early next week?

Not sure Ainge is done with the roster yet. Could be another move coming before then.

I'd be on board with a separate press conference for Robyn.

They could, but rumors on Twitter for the past few days have indicated the Hayward press conference would come from Vegas, since that's where all the NBA media is currently located.  It's also much closer to Hayward's off-season home of San Diego, so it would spare him the additional transcontinental trip this summer.

That's quite a reach. But im content knowing that at least my intended audience will actually read my post.

It seems to be that way.  A bit anticlimactic.

Double post to make up for the lack of press conferences.
