In the aftermath of Hayward’s decision, the Jazz attempted to work out a sign-and-trade with Boston to acquire small forward Jae Crowder in exchange for Hayward, among other assets, according to sources. Those talks fell apart, however, as the week progressed. The Jazz tried to make a deal work, but couldn’t find a deal the Celtics believed was worth it.
Crowder is under contract for the next three years at a total of nearly $22 million, which is bargain-type stuff in today’s market. “Jae is a big part of what we’re doing,” said Ainge. “I mean, he was our best 3-point shooter last year, and he defends some of the top players in the league. Jae’s a very important player for us going forward.”
Storyline: Jae Crowder Trade?
Early in January, there was a bit of drama when the Utah Jazz made their lone trip to Boston to take on the Celtics and the TD Garden crowd showed a lot of love to Gordon Hayward. Jae Crowder did not take too kindly to his team’s fans cheering an opposing player, and voiced his complaints both to the media after the game, and on Twitter.

Isaiah Thomas was even asked about it Friday night out in Las Vegas, but quickly downplayed any potential beef between the new teammates. Via CSNNE: Nah, we tryna win a championship. We put all that aside. We’re gonna try to figure faster, I mean sooner rather than later. And then try to compete for a championship. All those other things, I think it goes out the window now that you’re teammates.
