The Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz have been unable to find traction on a Gordon Hayward sign-and-trade.

Boston needs to clear cap space in order to sign Hayward outright and have been engaged with teams across the NBA on Jae Crowder, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart.

There were reports that Crowder could be traded to the Jazz. 

Because Hayward already agreed to sign with the Celtics and they could easily fit him into space by trading one of the aforementioned players, Utah would have to send another asset with Hayward to acquire Crowder.
