NBA Twitter reacts to Thunder trading for Gordon Hayward

The Oklahoma City Thunder improved their roster by acquiring Gordon Hayward from the Charlotte Hornets during the NBA trade deadline.

In exchange, the Thunder sent Tre Mann and Davis Bertans to the Hornets. Neither has played consistently for OKC this season, so there’s no real risk with this deal.

In 25 games, Hayward has averaged 14.5 points on 48.6% shooting, 4.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists. He’s shot 36.1% from 3 on 2.4 attempts. He’s on an expiring $31.5 million salary.

Health is a bit of an issue as he hasn’t played since Dec. 26, but Hayward is inching closer to a return as he was recently designated as questionable for the Hornets.

Let’s look at some of the best reactions to the trade from X, formerly known as Twitter.
