Isaiah Thomas Reportedly Followed, Unfollowed Gordon Hayward On Instagram

Gordon Hayward is one of the biggest NBA players that could be on the move this off-season. Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas may be courting him... or just messing with fans.

Earlier today, the All-Star point guard appears to have followed and then unfollowed Hayward on Instagram.

We checked, and Hayward is no longer among the players that Thomas is following. Interestingly, Thomas' wife Kayla is following Hayward's wife Robyn.

We're not sure when Kayla Thomas began following Robyn Hayward, but it is definitely interesting.

The Celtics are one of the two teams most often connected with Hayward as a potential destination, along with the Miami Heat. The former Butler star's college coach Brad Stevens leads the franchise, and the Celtics have a bright present and future, with the trade fleecing of the Brooklyn Nets starting to pay serious dividends. The team was the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, after going 53-29.

This isn't the first fun social media moment for either Thomas or Hayward this year. Robyn Hayward had fans freaking out when she posted a picture of her daughter in a shamrock shirt featuring the phrase "Go Green," which she subsequently deleted when fans took it as a hint that her husband would be joining the Celtics.

Thomas just appears to enjoy toying with fans on social media. He sent a tweet around the trade deadline of the same eye emoji that he posted before the team signed Al Horford. The Celtics did not ultimately acquire another star at the deadline. We'll see if the team can pry Hayward out of Utah.
