The Pacers are interested in trading for Gordon Hayward this offseason, according to Ian Begley of SportsNet New York.
In response to Begley's report, Zach Lowe stated on the most recent episode of The Lowe Post that he's heard increasing noise indicating Hayward won't be on the Celtics next season. Between the Celtics' considerable talent on the wing and Hayward's enormously expensive contract, a trade could be beneficial for both sides if the team sends him to a roster with a less crowded starting lineup. There have been no reports of other teams interested in Hayward, but Lowe suggested the Hawks or the Blazers could make a good fit.
