Report: Celtics plan is 'sequencing' acquisitions of Hayward, George

The Celtics are working to acquire BOTH Paul George and Gordon Hayward this summer, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports' The Vertical reports.

More from Woj's report:

The Boston Celtics are pursuing an aggressive summer plan of sequencing the signing of free agent Gordon Hayward and relinquishing the assets needed to complete a trade for Paul George, league sources told The Vertical.

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.

For Boston, here’s the hitch: While Indiana believes Boston can offer the best possible package, the Pacers may be unwilling to wait until the start of July free agency on Boston’s timetable and could turn toward making a deal elsewhere for George, league sources told The Vertical.

This report confirms an earlier one from the weekend that said the C's were looking to acquire both superstars.

The deals will be in place on June 30th or July 1st. LAL, Cavs and C's all will want George no matter the date.

The C's can dial back their George offer if there is no extension and the other teams take it from there.

Bottom line the day is meaningless

Is it just me or does it seem like the press is just making all this up at this point. They look at Ainge sitting on this pile of draft picks and young players and think 'he's going to try and sign everyone', and then make up articles linking the Celtics to every top free agent or tradable star. Everyone thought the Cs were all in on Butler, and didn't make an offer to beat Minny's. Same with Cousins last year. Now it's Hayward and George.

At least this year it's Haywar and George, both real All-Stars.

Back in 2014, some Celtic fans were hoping Ainge would give Greg Monroe and Toby Harris the max.

So ridiculous.
