A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE is reporting that the Celtics are interested in bringing in Gordon Hayward. This is nothing new, but it seems like the rumors has come back up again. Hayward is a nice talent, but how much is he worth? For me he's not worth 9-10 million a season. His numbers could be a bit inflated from a poor Utah Jazz team. I wouldn't want to deal Green for Hayward, just because Stevens wants him, because of personal reasons.
It would appear the one thing that might nudge Utah towards giving serious thought to dealing Hayward, would be if the Celtics were willing to part with at least one of their stockpiled first-round picks.
But two league sources, both having had recent conversations with the Celtics, told CSNNE.com on Tuesday that Boston is "very reluctant" to part with any of their first-round picks in facilitating a deal.
