Former Utah Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward is now officially a member of the Boston Celtics. As a result, the Eastern Conference franchise has finally confirmed that the veteran swingman will continue to sport his No. 20 upon taking his All-Star talents across the country.

However, and perhaps most notably, the same No. 20 was previously worn by Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen. With Hayward sporting such digits on his jersey going forward, it is clear that the Celtics will not be retiring Allen’s jersey anytime soon.
