Gordon Hayward Has Meetings Scheduled With 3 Teams

Boston Celtics have revealed that they are trying to sign in Paul George for a trade along with free agent Gordon Hayward from Utah Jazz. Last season George averaged a career-high 23.7 points per game on 43.2 per cent shooting from the field and 37.0 per cent from deep to go along with a 6.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game average.

Hayward wants the Jazz to bring back point guard George Hill, according to the Deseret News' Jody Genessy. That doesn't include, however, the max contract (starting at $29.7 million) they'll have to offer Gordon Hayward, nor the $4.3 million cap hold on their room mid-level exception, the $4 million cap hold on Joe Ingles or Boris Diaw's $7.5 million contract that fully guarantees on July 15. Furthermore, he would have just turned 30 and be well aligned for a final big contract. Golden State is the king of the mountain now, and the Spurs and Rockets are much better than Utah even with Hayward on the team. Leaving that $39,204,000 fifth-year player option would be hard, but a confident player would look to the future and see that the best path to maximizing his career earnings looks the same either way.

LeBron James has dominated the East for the last seven years, reaching the NBA Finals in each season since 2011. Think about that. He not only got to play for Jerry Sloan for a year, but he's had three years with Quin Snyder, arguably Jerry Sloan's only replacement.

Two weeks ago, 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo took a playful but telling swipe at Ainge after trading for the No. 1 pick in a deal with Boston. Tweet about all the reasons Gordon Hayward makes sense for Utah and all the reasons Utah makes sense for Gordon Hayward. The Jazz will have as good a chance as any to retain him. He had one more year on his deal but he waived it, as $16 million next season isn't really that much considering how much he can make.

Unfortunately for the C's, there's only one ball on the court at a time so instead of complimenting each other's game, they'll likely diminish their maximum efficiencies.

It is also possible that the Boston Celtics lose out on both free agents due to the timeline they set out entering the free agent period. The money is in both Boston and Utah.

But besides the relationship between Hayward and Stevens, Gordon can provide another scoring threat that gives you consistent offense if the opponents are shutting down Isaiah Thomas.

All of this should not be construed as an argument for Hayward to leave the Jazz or advocacy for it in any way. Considering the Heat didn't have a player at their free-agent meeting with Kevin Durant last summer, this is a much better look for Miami.
