Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said the team will consider any possible trade scenarios to improve this offseason, but also added that any blockbuster-type of trade is "unlikely." Speaking Friday at an introductory press conference for first-round pick Robert Williams, Ainge wouldn't go into significant detail on the team's plans as free agency nears, but he intends to look at all options. "If I feel like it'll help our team — we explore every trade of players of certain magnitude or superstar, first-ballot Hall of Fame-type of players," Ainge told reporters. "I think those things are unlikely." Ainge also emphasized how much he thinks of the team in its current form — a group that nearly reached the NBA Finals despite the absence of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward — calling it a "title contender." He acknowledged that having a roster in good enough shape to invite regular trade rumors isn't a bad problem to be faced with.
