HoopsHype Austin Ainge rumors
On Saturday, as the Celtics continued to work out players for the 2014 NBA draft, Celtics director of player of personnel Austin Ainge announced what his father Danny would’ve done. “I personally was not working here. But I was in college and I was in the draft room, and they would have taken Durant. I did have some inside information there,” Ainge said. WEEI.com
The Celtics may or may not get a chance to take Shabazz Napier in the June 26 NBA Draft. But team personnel executive Austin Ainge made one thing clear his opinion Monday after Napier’s workout for the team: Napier will be playing somewhere in the NBA eventually. “Shabazz is so clever and shifty,” Ainge said. “He is very hard to stay in front of because he really changes directions very well. He’s quick but he is even shiftier than he is quick. He’s very clever and he can make shots. “Shabazz is not physically overwhelming, toughness, intelligence and skill and has extra savvy so he more than makes up for it. He’s going to make it is my guess. He’s a good player.” WEEI.com
