Celtics Trade Away #1 Pick In NBA Draft In Typical Danny Ainge Fashion

Danny Ainge

Pretty much right after the NBA Lottery and the ping pong balls fell in favor of the Boston Celtics giving them the #1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA draft, rumors started swirling about the Celtics trading away the pick for a current NBA player or for future picks in the draft. These rumors were based upon Celtic’s GM Danny Ainge’s prolific history of trading away picks. So it was no surprise to some people when Ainge dealt the Celtics pick to the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers. Rumors are already stirring that the Celtics aren’t done and will use the picks they got in this deal with the Sixers to trade for a current NBA star. Here’s what people were saying about this common move by Ainge.


Now all of Celtics nation is in anticipation to see what Ainge does next. Everyone is expecting Ainge to make another move because as it sits right now this trade doesn't appear that good for the Celtics. If Ainge can somehow pull the trigger on another deal and spin this in a way that makes the Celtics better and favorites in the Eastern Conference, all of Boston will most likely react like this.
