Danny Ainge Rumors

With the Celtics fading in the first round, the chances of Carmelo Anthony wearing green are increasing. According to an NBA source, the Celtics coaching staff was in favor of trading for Anthony at the trade deadline, but general manager Danny Ainge had too many reservations. One of Ainge’s concerns, according to a source, was an Anthony trade would have given Boston no real cap space to work with for the 2017 free-agent class.

It was more, ‘Hey, this is K.G., Paul, Ray Allen’s team.’ And I just feel like it could have been stopped. Whatever that [was], it could have been stopped.”
