PLAYERS: Danny Ainge
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Short video just uploaded by the Celtics. Here's some more from Ainge on Olynyk, as Danny creates a new scouting term: "Quick mind": Ainge: "Kelly Olynyk can shoot, pass. He looks like he's from Eugene, OR in 1977 with that hair. He's a high character kid with big upside."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) June 28, 2013Ainge:"(Olynyk) isn't an explosive athlete but he's got a quick mind; that makes up for a lot. He's got a chance to be a good 3-pt shooter."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) June 28, 2013

Grading Each Draft of the Danny Ainge Era: 2009

Going into the 2009 NBA Draft, Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics had very low expectations. The franchise only had one selection that year and it didn't help that the pick was the 58th overall. But that's the price you have to pay when you trade draft picks for established talent in years prior. Had Ainge not traded for Kevin Garnett, the Minnesota Timberwolves wouldn'...

Grading Each Draft of the Danny Ainge Era: 2010

The 2010 NBA Draft class was kind of confusing to assess. Experts didn't know whether to consider it deep or shallow due to the fact that after the lottery there wasn't too much to pick from. Because of that Danny Ainge wasn't exactly sitting pretty with the number 19 overall pick but at the same time it was a decent selection to possess. Besides, any first round pick...

Grading Each Draft of the Danny Ainge Era: 2011

The 2011 NBA draft was filled with some of the top young stars we have in the Association today. The problem? Most of them were off the board by the end of the lottery, per usual, and Danny Ainge wouldn't even be making a selection in the top 20. Ainge and the Boston Celtics were going to need the luck of the Irish if they wanted a top-tier talent to fall to them. Unfortunately...

The moment the Celtics needed Doc most, he decided it was time to go

One day after Danny Ainge told his side of the story, Doc Rivers spoke to the media in Los Angeles, and then held a conference call with the Boston media. Doc was his normal self at the press conference, showing off his sense of humor and his graciousness when Clippers management said he was the best coach in basketball, "Let's stop with that 'best coach in basketball...

Grading Each Draft of the Danny Ainge Era: 2012

Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics had three picks to work with in last year's draft and it was the first time they owned that many selections since 2005. But with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett not getting any younger, the Celtics needed to begin injecting their roster with young talent. And what better way to do that than via the draft? So without further ado, I present the...

Draft day update: Ainge looking for late 1st rounder, mock draft wrap up

Let’s get you up to speed on the draft day trade rumors, workouts and mock drafts: ESPN’s Chad Ford: Later in the first round, the Celtics are trying to pick up a late-first or early-second-round pick.

Your Morning Dump… Where I’m still trying to wrap my head around the big trade

(Image courtesy: Bleacher Report) Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.

Celtics trade up to 13, select Kelly Olynyk

Trader Danny Ainge reportedly made a deal with the Dallas Mavericks for the 13th pick and used the pick to select Gonzaga’s Kelly Olynyk. The Celtics gave Dallas the 16th pick and two future 2nd round choices. Dallas eventually moved the 16th pick to Atlanta. Confused yet? As for Olynyk, he’s an athletic 7-footer who can play in the post and on the perimeter. Unfortunately, he...

Source Calls Rondo To Mavericks Trade Rumor 'Ridiculous'

Danny Ainge has denied trying to trade Rajon Rondo, and two league sources corroborated his stance by dismissing a report that the Celtics president discussed a deal that would send Rondo to Dallas. "The Celtics haven't had any conversations with Dallas about Rondo," said one source. "That's ridiculous. There's no truth to it. What in the world does Dallas...

Kelly Olynyk Nice Piece to Help Celtics’ Rebuilding Process, But Far From Franchise Cornerstone

BOSTON — Give Danny Ainge credit for framing the conversation. The agreement to send Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets was not even finalized Thursday night when the Celtics president of basketball operations did his best to set expectations extremely low for the coming season, and possibly beyond. Draft night is often the time for NBA team executives to act like...

Celtics can't draft what they need: a new coach

The Boston Celtics aren't going to get what they really need with the No. 16 pick in Thursday's NBA draft. They won't be able to select a coach, unless general manager Danny Ainge has found a loophole in league rules that allowed him this week to trade Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers. And, with their only pick of the night coming in the middle of the first round...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics need to avoid the land of the late lottery picks

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “Next year’s draft we don’t see as loaded. We see it as top-heavy,” he said. “(But) there will be more impact players next year.” In other words, Ainge believes they have to pick among the top 10 to...

Report: Celtics ready to blow it all up by trading Garnett and Pierce to the Nets

Danny Ainge isn’t playing around. The Boston Celtics GM is ready to blow up the Boston Celtics roster in one deal by trading away Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for the expiring deal of Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Tomike Shenglia and three first-round picks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. With Doc Rivers gone, there is no reason...

Report: Celtics And Nets Discussing Trade For Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

Celtics president Danny Ainge is hell-bent on starting his franchise over, if it makes them terrible enough to get into the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes.
