What rumor? Work with us in what possible way? What was the angle? There's no incentive for us to help you get Hayward. We wanted him back.
Ainge is such a boogeyman for y'all it's unbelievable.
This is classic gaslighting. "We harmed you, but it's okay, because you're a snake and you deserve it."
Ainge is trying to not look like an idiot for losing Hayward for nothing
So help me fill in the gaps here.
You were trying to work with Boston to do... what? Help us save face? Sign Hayward for less money?
And Ainge apparently didn't want to save face, or help you sign Hayward away from us for less, so he screwed with you... how?
And in response to Ainge's nebulous screwing around, you decided to threaten to stretch-waive Batum? But if Ainge hadn't screwed with you, you had some other method of acquiring Hayward?
What is the narrative here? "Twitter rumor has it" is not worth anything. This is totally absurd.
