BOSTON – This is the time of the year when we hear a bunch of trade rumors about the Boston Celtics, only to have Danny Ainge sit on his hands and do nothing. The picks are just part of doing business at the deadline, and given Ainge’s recent track record in the draft, we’ll take Gordon and Fournier over players no other team would consider drafting.
Usually, it’s the moves we don’t hear about that Ainge ends up pulling off, and with just over 48 hours left until the buzzer sounds on the NBA’s trading season, we’re still going ’round and ’round the rumor mill.
His team desperately needs it, and if these reports are true, Ainge has a golden opportunity to make the ideal move to help his team this season and next.
