Ainge: ‘Unlikely’ Celtics will make blockbuster trade


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.
