According to reports, the Boston Celtics are making a play for both Gordon Hayward and Paul George. Rarely do things work out to plan, so the team may have to settle for one. Gordon Hayward would be reunited with his college coach, Brad Stevens, and it wouldn’t cost the Celtics anything other than cash. Paul George is a two-way All-Star who can change the franchise’s fortunes. What do you think? 🍀 🏀

The Boston Celtics have a ton of assets to throw at Indiana to get Paul George, but it doesn’t mean they should. Gordon Hayward is an All-Star they can build around, and they won’t have to give up any players or draft picks to get him. And they would be getting a player who is familiar with what head coach Brad Stevens is trying to do.

Hayward and Stevens were close to winning a national championship together when both were at Butler. That kind of success and familiarity will help solidify a team that is maybe one piece away from competing for an NBA championship. Paul George is a one-year rental at best. Gordon Hayward could be a Celtic for years.

Whatever the price is for Paul George is, it is worth it. The guy is one of the best two-way players in the NBA, and one of the best one-on-one players on the planet. Gordon Hayward might be more familiar with Brad Stevens’ playbook, but once George gets acclimated, he will be so much better than Hayward.

Paul George would bring some much-needed relief to Isaiah Thomas, who lost steam as the year wore on. And if the Celtics make a deep run into the playoffs again, it’ll be tough for George to leave a winner for the wasteland that is the Los Angeles Lakers.
