Celtics looking to land Gordon Hayward, Paul George

Celtics looking to land Gordon Hayward, Paul George”

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have been working on "sequencing" deals for Hayward and George this offseason.

A starting group that features four-time All-Star George, a 2017 debut All-Star in Hayward and 29-point-per-game point guard Isaiah Thomas could be just what the Celtics need to get them over the hump in the Eastern Conference - they lost the conference finals to the Cavaliers in five games this spring - but they do need to be wary of George's contract situation and personal interests.

Sources: Cavs talked 3-way trade involving Paul George, Kevin Love: Sources told ESPN that the Cavaliers engaged in serious three-way trade discussions leading up to the National Basketball Association draft on a deal that would have brought them George from the Indiana Pacers and landed Kevin Love, George's fellow Eastern Conference All-Star, with the Denver Nuggets. They also can entice IN with young players such as two-way forward Jae Crowder, shooting guard Avery Bradley and 2016's No. 3 overall pick, Jaylen Brown. Boston's belief that it can make George more than a one-year rental is fueling the franchise's willingness to part with a significant package of assets, league sources said. But what Boston can offer the Pacers is young players paired with future draft picks which is something IN desperately needs.

Boston has been collectively rumored to be going after either George or Hayward for over a year now but it's alway been a one or the other. The sides were growing close to a deal on draft night, but a third-team scenario fell through late in the evening that stalled talks. And, according to The Vertical, the Pacers might not wait until Saturday to strike a deal for George.

Wojnarowski also noted that if the Celtics can not acquire Hayward, there are plans in place to pursue Blake Griffin and still trade for George.

George, 27, informed the Pacers on June 17 that he planned to leave the Pacers in 2018 as a free agent, and his preference was to sign a deal with his hometown Los Angeles Lakers.
