Celtics looking to add both Gordon Hayward and Paul George in offseason

Woj: Celtics Trying To Land Gordon Hayward And Paul George This Summer

The Boston Celtics are willing to surrender significant assets on a Paul George trade with belief that they can convince the All-Star to sign an extension, according to a new report. According to Wojnarowski, the Celtics must first make sure they have a commitment from Hayward before they clear the necessary salary cap space to acquire George.

After all of the rumors and reports, the Boston Celtics did not end up swinging a trade for a superstar before or during the 2017 NBA Draft. They would need to shed some salaries. It wasn't enough, though, to get past LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, something that adding Paul George or Gordon Hayward to their roster might rectify.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on this plan Tuesday, but he also offered another interesting nugget on how Boston's plan would change if Hayward remains in Utah or chooses to sign elsewhere. 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. In fact, they don't want to wait for free agency to begin either.




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. IN is adamant on receiving young players and future draft picks, which are both things that Boston has plenty.

A possible roadblock to the Celtics' plan is that IN may seek to ship George out prior to start of free agency on July 1. "Indiana has been focused on trying to complete a deal with Boston for George, league sources told The Vertical". Griffin, of course, would be leaving a lot of money on the table if he chose to bolt Los Angeles.
