After all of the rumors and reports, the Boston Celtics did not end up swinging a trade for a superstar before or during the 2017 NBA Draft. Yet according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, they still have some big plans. 

Per Wojnarowski, the Celtics are trying to acquire both Gordon Hayward (via free agency) and Paul George (via trade) in the coming weeks. Via The Vertical:

The Boston Celtics are pursuing an aggressive summer plan of sequencing the signing of free agent Gordon Hayward and relinquishing the assets needed to complete a trade for Paul George, league sources told The Vertical.

For salary-cap purposes, Boston wants a Hayward commitment before it can finalize a trade for George and secure the most dynamic free-agent coup in franchise history, league sources said.

For Boston, here's the hitch: While Indiana believes Boston can offer the best possible package, the Pacers may be unwilling to wait until the start of July free agency on Boston's timetable and could turn toward making a deal elsewhere for George, league sources told The Vertical.

Danny Ainge has pulled off a similar combination of moves in the past. He swung trades for both Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett in summer 2007, and once again he has the right combination of picks and young players necessary to facilitate moves of this magnitude. 

But there are still multiple hurdles to clear here, and nothing from Wojnarowski's report makes it seem that either deal is imminent. As is the case with any of these kind of potential blockbuster moves -- especially with the Celtics, who seem to always be at the table -- it's important to have some restraint. 

However, it's reasonable to pay close attention to this scenario, because if Ainge is able to bring in both Hayward and George in the same offseason, even with the caveat that George could be a one-year rental because of his reported desire to play in Los Angeles, it could upend the power structure in the East.
