Danny Ainge Rumors

As Celtics coach Brad Stevens looks to replace what were expected to be 35 minutes a night out of the All-Star and eight-year veteran, he looks to a bench that includes six rookies and one second-year player. Stevens also looks to Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge to get some help from the outside. “I think that we will at least actively be looking [to fill] that [open] roster spot,” the coach said prior to Wednesday night’s home opener against the Milwaukee Bucks. “Just because, obviously from the standpoint of the youth, but also because you lose one of your better shooters, your more versatile players, a guy who can put the ball in the basket for you.”
