I'm not sure he fits that role. For a player to have that "floor impact", he needs to be crafty and be creative like you said about Harden back in his OKC days IMO.
Re: Hart, I would be ecstatic if he can be like a Danny Green who can really hit 3's and at the same time be a very good defender.

Houston also trying hard to get PG.. Houston, Celtics, Cavs, Lakers all trying hard to get PG.

Celtics have the most to offer in future first round draft picks, but it is contingent upon Hayward signing with Celtics first. Houston has Ariza, Capela and future 1st round picks to offer. Cavs don't have enough assets unless if they include Love or bring in 3rd team - they would still need to trade Love to make salaries work. We will not be so lucky to sign PG outright as a FA next summer. Pacers are not dumb enough to just let him walk.

Lakers have Clarkson, Randle, Brewer's expiring deal, Nance, Zubac, future 1st rounders. Pacers could use Brewer's expiring deal and couple future 1st rounders. They don't need Nance, Zubac, Clarkson, or Randle..

PG is still saying he wants to go to LA though. He's talking about teaming up with someone this season but those guys think it's a 1 season rental if he gets traded to a place like that. All Lakers fans can do is cross their fingers.

If he ends up on a team with deep playoff run squad potential, he may sign extension. From what the news sources say, the Celtics/Pacers deal is contingent on Hayward signing with Boston first. Celtics has so many draft picks that we can't even compete for PG on an open trade market. Not unless if we bring Ingram or Ball to the table, which obviously cannot be done under any circumstances.

If Celtics pull that trade off after signing Hayward, we will just have to look elsewhere for our next big star. No way PG leaves that for a rebuilding team out West.
