The Boston Celtics have finally allowed their pick from the Brooklyn Nets to be included in the conversation with the Indiana Pacers on Paul George.

The Celtics own swap rights for the Nets' first round pick in 2017 and their first rounder outright in 2018.

Boston has been searching for a superstar to add to their roster, yet has been reluctant to include any of Brooklyn's picks in talks.

The Celtics have also been interested in Jimmy Butler.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the Pacers have been engaged with other teams to potentially clear roster spots that could be related to their talks with Boston on Paul George.
