The Boston Celtics are currently 23-55, tied for the third worst record in the league with the Orlando Magic.
It looks like one down year is enough in Boston.
Celtics’ general manager Danny Ainge wants to make a big splash in the offseason.
“I’m going to try to blow off some fireworks, but I have to be patient as well and we have to make sure that we don’t do deals just to do deals,” Ainge said Thursday during his weekly call to Boston sports radio 98.5 the Sports Hub as transcribed by Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston. “We have to do the right deals. Those are a lot harder than most people think or believe or understand. I’m not making any promises, we have a busy summer ahead of us, and there’s a lot of different directions we could go.”
Ainge thinks he has the tools to get a big deal done.
“I think that the the groundwork has been laid, potentially for some deals this summer. But no guarantees,” said Ainge.
The Celtics have some nice young players in Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger to build around and will be armed with a pick that at this time will be no lower than seventh.
