Ready for some fireworks? Celtics looking to acquire Hayward and George


One potentially major stumbling block: Wojnarowski reports the Pacers could move George elsewhere prior to the start of free agency rather than wait out the Celtics.

The Boston Celtics' reported summer plans include signing Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward as an National Basketball Association free agent and then trading for Indiana Pacers forward Paul George. 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. Earlier, George expressed interest in playing alongside the Utah Jazz superstar in the near future. The Celtics have several young players and are flush with draft picks in the coming years.

For salary-cap purposes, Boston wants a Hayward commitment before it can finalize a trade for George and secure the most dynamic free-agent coup in franchise history, league sources said. 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. "Indiana has been focused on trying to complete a deal with Boston for George, league sources told The Vertical".

The 30-share pack, which opened at 31,352 against the previous close of 31,290, witnessed a 255-point swing in intraday trade. On a weekly basis, the Sensex gained 81.81 points, or 0.26%, while the broader Nifty shed 13.10 points, or 0.13%.

IN has been focused on trying to complete a deal with Boston for George, league sources told The Vertical. And, according to The Vertical, the Pacers might not wait until Saturday to strike a deal for George. In 73 games last season, he tallied 21.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.5 assists, a performance that earned him a berth in the All-Star Game.

Another option for Danny Ainge is Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin who could apparently be another player the Celtics sign in a series of moves to also land George.
