Hayward is a borderline top 20 player (but more likely a 20–30 player in the league). This makes Boston better, but it also means they have to lose some of their depth, releasing olynk and trading one of smart, rozier, and crowder. Just two months ago boston fans were talking about how such players were almost untouchable and not worthy to be in trade to get Jimmy or PG13. All this seems a little anti-climatic and that Boston didnt do enough to truly make them elite, they instead seem to want to settle for very good. Cleveland looks vulnerable and if Boston went all in, they could have been something great and really interesting.
