According to Zach Lowe, the Celtics and Pacers are far apart in a deal revolving around Paul George.

The Celtics' pursuit of George shouldn't have an impact on their ability to sign Gordon Hayward.

Boston has maneuvering to do with its roster, including the shedding of salaries to create space to position itself for this scenario.

The Pacers can ask for whatever they want, but the reality of the situation is that Boston should only need to exceed what other suitors (like the Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards) can offer.

IN reportedly wants the 2018 Brooklyn Nets first-round pick and the first-rounder the C's acquired from the Philadelphia 76ers from Boston in return for George.

Utah is fighting to hold onto Hayward in free agency, but is exploring multiple scenarios to reshape the roster should the All-Star forward leave the franchise.

Himmelsbach added that it's unclear how close the teams are to completing a deal.

A league source said today that the Celtics are waiting to hear back from Pritchard, who as of draft night was asking for next year's Nets and Lakers first round picks, which are both under Celtics control. Plus, there are multiple rumors saying he'd like to play for his hometown Los Angeles Lakers, hurting his trade value even more. He has vowed to play through next season with IN but the four-time All-Star intends to leave when his contract expires next year.
