If the Celtics are indeed destined to trade for Paul George, they are probably just at the beginning of a long process in their dealings with in general manager Kevin Pritchard.

The Celtics, though, do not have a good read on whether George would be open to staying in Boston after next season.

While the Celtics have the combination of young stars and draft picks to make an enticing trade offer to the Pacers, Boston still has plenty of competition to land George. Plus, there are multiple rumors saying he'd like to play for his hometown Los Angeles Lakers, hurting his trade value even more. But just because the Celtics balked at this offer doesn't mean that a deal won't get done.

The Boston Celtics have been very patient over the last couple of years, being very cautious of not overpaying for assets. However, Ainge is running out of time to add that missing piece to put his team over the hump, and dealing for George could be the right move if the team also signs Gordon Hayward.

Cosby and Frazier were on screen together in the 1978 comedy "California Suite", which also starred Jane Fonda and Alan Alda. Ms Constand acknowledged that she had maintained contact but said that she felt obligated to do so because of her job.

Utah is fighting to hold onto Hayward in free agency, but is exploring multiple scenarios to reshape the roster should the All-Star forward leave the franchise.

George had reportedly told IN that he will not be re-signing with the franchise after the 2017-18 season.

The Jazz forward is reportedly traveling to Miami for a meeting with the Heat on Saturday, and the Jazz in Salt Lake City on Monday.
