As soon as Ainge used those six picks in one way or another in the last two drafts, that should have signaled to everybody that the team was embracing a youth movement. Really bad teams string together high lottery selections, hoping to find franchise players. You could argue that the last three hauls of first round picks would have been better used as collateral in deals that could have supported teams with Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, and Al Horford. They’re one of the youngest playoff teams in the league and have an opportunity to get potentially dramatically better if they use the TPE. They have a stable of young players that have either generated real production or shown enough promise in the pros or in college for other teams to take a chance on.
