Utah Middle School Students Write Letters to Gordon Hayward Begging Him to Stay
Celtics Working Hard to Acquire Paul George AND Gordon Hayward This Offseason
Adding to the speculation that Boston’s ready to be a contender (in the East, anyway) right now, Yahoo‘s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Celts are poised to jump on not one, but two big-dollar players this off-season.
Not only are they prepared to cut a likely maximum-contract check for Utah’s Gordon Hayward, but they’re also reportedly willing to toss some players away in a trade for Paul George.
Due to cap implications, Boston would virtually be required to sign Hayward before getting George, and there’s a chance that even though Indiana believes Boston can make the best offer for their big man, they won’t wait for that to happen before trying to strike a deal.
Either one of these acquisitions would be a blockbuster, and scoring both would be historic. But even if it doesn’t happen, it shows Boston’s not about to sit idly by as Cleveland increases their stranglehold on the East.
