After initially dipping their toe into the Paul George trade waters, Boston is now jumping in the deep end, at least according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski:
Update on Boston, Indy: Boston hasn't met Indiana's asking price on Paul George, but Nets pick has entered conversation now, sources say.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) February 23, 2017
Brooklyn is the worst team in the NBA, so their pick has a very good chance of landing in the top three, if not being the top pick overall. That makes the trade chip very attractive in what is expected to be a loaded 2017 NBA Draft.
With only a few hours to go, though, we'll see if talks can get serious enough.
