They need to clear a significant amount in order to sign Hayward outright. If this is even a thing, a third team would have to be involved imo.
We won't take on Batum or Zeller's contract even if they're expiring. Batum will put us over the tax. Zeller may not, but we already signed Thompson and have Theis/Timelord/Grant as backups.
The TPE is the prize here and whatever pick they can throw our way along with it. We can use both to sign an FA (why Bogdan's name is being brought up) or for midseason trades or for next offseason.
I thought the Hornets were waiving Batum to make room?
They could yes, but I guess this tells me the Hornets aren't fully prepared to do it yet. Otherwise what else is there to discuss with the Celtics lol?
