Celtics working to land both Gordon Hayward and Paul George

The Boston Celtics will aggressively pursue signing Gordon Hayward in free agency and landing Paul George in a trade with the Indiana Pacers, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. Wojnarowski says for salary cap purposes, the Celtics want to finalize a commitment from Hayward when free agency begins before making the Paul George trade with the Pacers. They would need to shed some salaries.

After he was drafted ninth overall by the Jazz in 2010, Hayward emerged as the franchise's newest superstar.

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.

One thing that might hold this up is Boston's timetable which can only kick in when free agency starts in July. 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. "IN is desirous of the young players and future draft picks that Boston is uniquely able to offer the Pacers for George".

There have been rumors about a George-to-Boston deal scenario going back to last week's NBA Draft, and even before. "Indiana 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.

The Celtics have a growing confidence they could sign George to a contract extension, and keep him from leaving to his predetermined free-agent destination of the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told The Vertical.

George is a four-time All-Star and one of the NBA's elite two-way players.
