So I know a lot of you aren’t real familiar with the players that we brought in," Ainge said. "But like I said earlier, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright, as an example are two players that we’ve tried to acquire in the past. Thought they were under-valued players in their minutes, in their contributions so far. And time will tell if we were right or wrong on that, but we really like them, and think they fit into a good team in a rotation role. CSNNE.com
