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.

Unless George signs a multi year deal, don't do the deal.

I don't mind one of them, but do we need both?

If we get both and get rid of Crowder, we would then have 4 very good players at SF, but not enough minutes for everybody. I think I would rather have Hayward, we sign him and we could still keep all our picks, if we make the trade for PG, we lose some chips that could be really huge long term. If we sign both, how we gonna sign other players that are already on team, they'll need to be paid at some level too. I hope Jaylen and Jayson are untouchable.

I agree with your thought process.

Position-less basketball.

IT, Brown, Hayward, George, and Horford.

Tatum and Smart off the bench.

That's one hell of a top 7.

Zizic will be the 8th man.

My understanding - If the Celtics want to pay (can afford) the luxury tax - then a player like Thomas will be available via the "Larry Bird " rule.

True.

But to keep the Larry Bird exception, the Celts must not renounce Thomas.

Not renouncing Thomas also means Thomas has a cap hold.

If they were to get George - I would expect either George or Tatum to be gone - along with other chips.

Tatum's not included.

Adam Kaufman ✔ @AdamMKaufman I'm told #Celtics offer to IND for George is LAL/SAC pick from PHI, '19 MEM OR LAC pick, Crowder, $$ filler (Zeller pop name, Bradley poss). 3:07 AM - 28 Jun 2017
