Danny Ainge Rues Not Having Transcendent Player On Roster

Sep 27, 2015 8:11 PM

The Boston Celtics have a talented roster but Danny Ainge has been unable to acquire a true star.

“I’m excited about the team," said Ainge. "I mean, listen, there’s always things you want to do that you don’t get to do,” he said. “We don’t always get what we want, but I’m excited about each and every guy on this roster. I think you need transcendent players in the NBA and you don’t always get what you want.”

The Celtics own a wealth of future draft picks.

Celtics Offered Four First Rounders To Hornets For No. 9

Jul 28, 2015 10:24 AM

The Boston Celtics offered four first-round picks to the Charlotte Hornets for the chance to move up from No. 16 to No. 9. The Celtics were targeting Justise Winslow while the Hornets were settled on taking Frank Kaminsky.

The Celtics offered the 16th pick, No. 15 (acquired in a prearranged contingency deal with the Atlanta Hawks), one unprotected future Brooklyn pick, and a future first-rounder from either the Memphis Grizzlies or Minnesota Timberwolves.

Some members of the Hornets' front office wanted to do the deal with the Celtics, but Michael Jordan preferred Kaminsky over first rounders outside the lottery.

“If it was such a no-brainer for us, why would another team want to do it?” said Rich Cho.

Heat Trade Zoran Dragic To Celtics

Jul 27, 2015 12:27 PM

The Boston Celtics have acquired Zoran Dragic and a second round pick from the Miami Heat.

The pick is unlikely to ever change hands.

Miami will also send cash to Boston to help cover Dragic's salary. The trade helps the Heat considerably with the luxury tax.


The trade did not upset Goran Dragic, who is hoping his brother will get more chances at playing time with the Celtics.

The Celtics were able to take Dragic into their salary-cap space.

Jordan Mickey Signs Four-Year, $5M Deal With Celtics

Jul 20, 2015 12:45 PM

The Boston Celtics have signed the 33rd overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft, Jordan Mickey, to a four-year, $5 million contract, league sources told RealGM.

Mickey’s deal contains two years guaranteed, sources said. The Celtics announced the signing on Monday. It marks the richest second-round deal in league history.

During the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and Utah, Mickey averaged 12.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in eight games — separating himself as one of Boston’s best young assets. The 6-foot-8 forward also shot 52.7 percent from the field while playing 28.1 minutes a game.

With the Celtcs, Mickey will earn the contract of a first-round selection.

Mickey declared for the NBA draft after his sophomore season at LSU, where he averaged 15.4 points and 9.9 rebounds per game.
