”It looks unlikely that anything will be done, other than possibly some players we will add to our roster,” Ainge said. “Not sure yet of what that will be.
“We’re looking to give it a run. When trade rumors come out that leads to a lot of (discussion) too. (Rajon) Rondo’s name comes out and Paul (Pierce)’s name comes out. KG (Kevin Garnett)’s name comes out. You have to field a lot of waste-of-time calls from media and other teams.
“Sometimes the teams try to predict what a team is trying to accomplish. Are the Celtics trying to win a championship this year? Because we’re in that middle, could go in either direction place, that leads to a lot of calls as well.
“My first choice is always to try to win now, especially when you have unique players like KG and Paul. That’s always the best option.”
Ainge is playing it smart. The team is playing well at this time, so he has no reason to trade off KG, or Pierce. At the same time he holds onto two guys that fans don't want traded. The Celtics face rumors because Danny has built the reputation of a wheeler and dealer. With two great players. You can still put up a good run. The East is open outside of Miami.
