The Boston Celtics reportedly are hoping to make a splash once NBA free agency starts.
The C’s have a plan in place to acquire soon-to-be free agent Gordon Hayward and then trade with the Indiana Pacers for Paul George, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
There was a lot of news in Wojnarowski’s report, but one thing that still wasn’t clear was what the potential George deal would include.
Well, that was until Adam Kaufman of WBZ News Radio and 98.5 The Sports Hub tweeted out this information:
So, the current plan, according to Kaufman, is to send the recently acquired first-round pick they received from the Philadelphia 76ers, either the 2019 Memphis Grizzlies or Los Angeles Clippers’ protected first-round pick, Jae Crowder and a money filler to the Pacers. All three draft picks are part of the treasure chest of assets president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has acquired.
But Indiana reportedly doesn’t want to wait until after the C’s sign Hayward, so this still very much is in flux.
