Pacers' Demands For Paul George Are Getting A Little Crazy

The Miami Heat will meet with Gordon Hayward on Saturday, according to a report by the Salt Lake Tribune.

Most recently, it was announced that Hayward would meet with both the Heat and Celtics this weekend before speaking with the Jazz on Monday, according to the Deseret News.

One of the top free agents in the NBA, Gordon Hayward, has reportedly scheduled interviews with three teams.

If he were to join the Celtics as their roster stands today, Hayward's 12.0 nERD would rank second to only Isaiah Thomas, who posted a 16.3 nERD over the 2016-17 season.

Hayward has spent his first seven National Basketball Association seasons in Utah, where he has blossomed into a formidable offensive threat after an unremarkable first few years in the league. Hayward can sign a five-year deal worth $177.5 million with the Jazz while the Heat and Celtics can offer him a four-year maximum contract.

Sources told Jones that Hayward "wants to take his meetings, and make a decision in short order".

Last postseason, the Jazz produced a video featuring Hayward and his teammates, asking them which National Football League quarterback they preferred.

Last season with the Jazz, Hayward ended up averaging 21.9 points per game to go along with 5.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists.

One of those teams is the Boston Celtics, who have been run for nearly a decade and a half by former star player Danny Ainge.

If Hayward is in place, the Celtics would then trade for George, a 6-foot-9 forward from the Indiana Pacers. Hayward played under Boston head coach Brad Stevens at Butler, and the two maintain a close relationship.

And all of it might not be enough to keep Hayward, coming off his first all-star appearance, in Utah.

Hayward, on the other hand, will likely be an unrestricted free agent starting July 1 as he has a player option that most expect him to opt out of.
