Simmons: Celtics targeting Gordon Hayward

While this is only an opinion stated by ESPN's Bill Simmons, Hayward to the Celtics has been a popular topic of discussion all season. As a restricted free agent, Hayward could draw a lot of interest on the open market, but with Courtney Lee now headed to the Grizzlies, the Celtics have a little more room to play with should they target the 6-foot-8 small forward this off-season.

Hayward is averaging 16.5 points, 4.8 assists, and 5.3 rebounds a game for the 11-25 Utah Jazz.
