Celtics contacted approximately 30 players last night, according to source. Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons are on the list.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) July 1, 2014
Just like Ainge's supposed interest in Isaiah Thomas, it's hard to gauge what Danny intends to do with Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons. The Jazz have said that they'll match any offer sheet that Hayward signs and the Celtics aren't the only suitor. He could be looking at a max contract deal with the Suns apparently. Any significant deal with a free agent will have to be in the sign-and-trade vain and unless these restricted free agents make it clear to their current teams that they have no intention of sticking around passed their obligation, it's hard to see any of them in green in the near future.
