This Celtics-Jazz trade would swap Rudy Gobert, Gordon Hayward

The Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz both are two teams who will look to improve in the NBA offseason in an effort to pull off a deeper playoff run in 2021. Rudy Gobert and Gordon Hayward will be two players to watch with their current contracts nearing an end.

Since emerging as a full-time starter, Gobert has provided a vital presence for the Jazz as a shot blocker, rebounder, and play finisher. However, is his skill-set worth paying a massive contract extension to when the team has struggled to get deep in the NBA playoffs?

Meanwhile, the Celtics have to decide on the long-term future of Gordon Hayward with their organization. He has a player option that he is highly likely to accept but Boston could trade him this offseason after he picks it up, if they wanted to.

The lack of impact from the center position was an issue for the Celtics. It’s something they tried to get by with since the departure of Al Horford, but it proved to be too problematic when it mattered most— during the NBA playoffs. Could Gobert be a potential answer?

With that being said, let’s take a look at a trade that would send Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert to the Boston Celtics.
