“At first [my agent] didn’t think there was any chance that I’d be cut,” Hunter said. “He had a couple of talks with Danny because him and Danny are really good friends but then he was like, ‘It kind of is coming down to you and James.’ It made the camp difficult because it was like every day was a constant battle, and sometimes you’re playing not knowing that you’re even going to be on the team. “It was good that I got to see the business side early, though, because I definitely thought it was a sweeter league, and it hit me early that it’s not.”
“With James, with that fourth year, we just want to wait and see how he progresses in this third year,” Danny Ainge said Tuesday. “It’s a big year for James, but I really like where he is. As a person and a player, he’s made great strides and is becoming more of a pro all the time.” Ainge said that Young was at the gym from 7 to about 9 p.m. Monday, long after Boston’s practice had ended. During that time Young and Ainge also sat down and discussed the team’s decision not to pick up the $2.8 million 2017-18 option.
