Ainge is in his 12th season as president of basketball operations, and the summer before last he commenced a major roster reconstruction with the trade of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. The frequency of transactions has accelerated in recent weeks as the Celts gather draft picks and shed salary. “I feel like I love what we’re doing,” Ainge told the Herald. “I think that we have a big task and a real challenge ahead of us, and I love the challenge. I’m ready for the long haul, and we’re prepared to do it as quickly as we can. But I’m also ready to do it the long way of developing players into a good team. From my standpoint, I’m enjoying it. “I love what I do. I love the people I work with, and I think we just all take it a year at a time. But right now I’m looking at it as a phase. I plan on being here for a while, and I plan on Brad (Stevens) being our coach for a while, and I plan on us turning this thing around.” Boston Herald
While Prince's future in Boston very much remains unclear (the Celtics could trade him or work out a buyout of this, the final year of his contract), Stevens said he would love to have Prince stay with the Celtics for the remainder of this season. "He (Prince) impacts winning," Stevens said. "He impacts you in the right way." CSNNE.com
