The Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics are in ongoing talks over a sign-and-trade that involves Gordon Hayward getting a max contract and Jae Crowder coming to Utah, league sources told The Tribune on Wednesday night.

Hayward announced his decision to leave Utah for Boston on Tuesday. But before the Celtics can officially sign Hayward to a four-year, $128-million contract, they must clear salary cap space. The Celtics started the process this week when they waived forward Kelly Olynyk, who reportedly has attracted the interest of the Jazz. ESPN reported Wednesday that Boston also has been shopping Marcus Smart, Crowder and Avery Bradley.
