Danny Ainge Rumors

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has increased his social media activity in recent months. And one Celtics player on his short list of Twitter follows is Jared Sullinger. So has Ainge seen the photos Sullinger has posted that chronicle his offseason conditioning efforts? “I skim through it,” Ainge said with a smile at Tuesday’s eighth annual Shamrock Foundation “Teeing Up For Kids” golf tournament at Old Sandwich Golf Club. And does he like what he sees? “My eyes aren’t good enough to see the Twitter pictures, nor do I believe most of the Twitter pictures,” added Ainge. “But I’m not worried about that. I know Jared’s put in a lot of work this summer and it’s a big year for him and for us and I’m confident he’s gonna have a terrific year.”

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he has had preliminary contract talks with the agents for forwards Tyler Zeller and Jared Sullinger. Both players are eligible to be offered extensions prior to the Oct. 31 deadline, though it remains unclear whether the Celtics will choose that route for either. “Obviously, those are two guys that we like moving forward,” Ainge said. “So, yeah, there will be more discussions with both of them, probably during the month of October.”

But the Celtics are going to give Jones every opportunity to prove he deserves to stay before they decide on his future. And, at this point, all Jones is looking for is a fresh start and a chance. “With OKC, there hasn’t been as much of an opportunity for him to play as much as he would like as a youngster on a team trying to compete for a championship,” Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said while introducing Perry on Monday. “But [he is] very athletic — a different type of player than we have in the frontcourt right now with his athleticism and length.”
