NBA rumors: Celtics planning big moves in offseason

The Boston Celtics shipped off their two biggest stars last offseason, which has led to the team struggling on the court in 2013. However, things could soon be looking up for the Celtics and their fan base thanks to some offseason plans that Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has in store for the team.

Ainge previously said that he plans to “blow off some fireworks” this offseason, and he expanded on those comments to ESPN.com.

“I think that the the groundwork has been laid, potentially for some deals this summer. But no guarantees,” said Ainge

“We need quality players. I would just say, one of our weaknesses has been a closer and rim protection — those have been two of our weaker spots in the course of this year. But, listen, I’ve seen a lot of teams react and fill those needs at the expense of something else. It’s just not that easy that you can go find those weaknesses, or we’d obviously have them. A closer is obviously a really really hard to find.”

It will be interesting to see what Ainge has up his sleeves for the team this offseason, but it looks the team could be making some waves with huge moves around the league.
