The Pacers reportedly still have interest in acquiring Gordon Hayward from the Celtics according to SNY’s Ian Begley. The report continued a month of speculation that Boston could find willing trade partners if Hayward opts into his $34 million player option. Trading Hayward would allow the Celtics to fill out $30 million in salary they would not get back should Hayward depart after the 2021 season. Boston could also work out a long-term deal with Hayward if he opts out, but his injury history makes that a risky proposition. John Zannis, Josue Pavon, Jimmy Toscano and Bobby Manning discussed how to best handle Hayward’s free agency on the Garden Report.
