Kelly Olynyk became another casualty of Danny Ainge clearing cap space once Gordon Hayward announced his decision to join the Celtics on Tuesday.
Olynyk will be taking his 'man-bun' to South Beach as he has agreed to a 4-year, $50 million deal with the Miami Heat, after the Celtics renounced their rights to the seven-footer, making him an unrestricted free agent.
The Canadian fan favorite went out of his way to tweet out a heartfelt message thanking the Celtics, it's fans and the city of Boston via Twitter:
🙏🏼 Thank You Boston 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/62T603C1b1— Kelly Olynyk (@KellyOlynyk) July 7, 2017
Olynyk averaged 9.5 points (37 percent from behind the arc) and 4.7 rebounds off the bench during his four seasons in Boston.
