Via Bleacher Report:
The Deal: Mason Plumlee, Gary Harris and a first-round pick for Gordon Hayward
The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets are both playing well. Boston was stellar with Hayward in the lineup before he broke his hand. The Nuggets have been a solid plus-3.0 points per 100 possessions with Plumlee and Harris on the floor over the years.
But Denver is ripe for a consolidation trade, and the Celtics could use a little depth behind a starting lineup that has recently stabilized without Hayward. (Boston is plus-23.6 points per 100 possessions when Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are on the floor over the last two weeks.)
Just when Hayward was finally back to full strength. This guy can’t catch a break.
This trade scenario could be complete fantasy or something that is being rumored around the league.
Either way it isn’t great for Hayward. You never want the trade rumor mill to get ahold of your name.
