2010-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were Danny Ainge, would you be looking to move Ray Allen? And if so, what kind of return would you be looking for?
(Owen from Los Angeles)
I'm on the record as thinking Allen has deteriorated to the point where he needs to be on the block, and the Celtics have only this limited window over the next week to take advantage of his expiring contract since they're still way over the cap. One counterpoint, though: Wayne Winston has been trumpeting Allen's adjusted plus-minus and the Celtics have been a better team this season with him on the floor: http://basketballvalue.com/teamplayers.php?year=2009-2010&team=BOS

As for return, the ideal would be a younger version of Allen, I think. If the Kings decided they wanted to move Kevin Martin for an expiring contract (and this isn't going to happen), he would be about perfect. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2010-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Talk about this Ray Allen for Jamison and Butler rumor. Ainge is denying it. But he's a sneaky guy. Could it happen? If not, does Ray stay in green?
(Josh Stein from Needham, MA)
If you listen to Danny Ainge, he's either lazy or not doing his job. No, he's obviously talking to people. I would say that this particular rumor is awfully unlikely because it doesn't give the Wizards any future talent in return for either Jamison or Butler. It's a fall-back option if Washington can't get prospects in return for those guys individually along with the salary-cap relief Ray Allen's deal would provide. Who would have imagined a month ago that Allen would end up strictly an expiring contract on the trade market at this point? (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2009-06-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on the Rondo trade rumors? I don't see how this deal makes sense for the C's unless there's something about Rondo we don't know...
(Dr. Wayne Pitcher from Castro Valley, CA)
Just rumors, none of them with anything more than anonymous sources. If Danny Ainge is seeing something in Rondo that we don't, he needs glasses. (Bradford Doolittle (Basketball))
2009-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)One of the concerns raised at the time of Ainge's two big trades was that this team would have a limited window of opportunity before it all fell apart. Does Rondo's development keep that window open longer? And who else can develop enough to help this team avoid a horror show when the Big Three decline?
(krissbeth from watertown, ma)
It's funny that the Celtics are heading toward a similar position to where the Spurs are now, with a young PG emerging as the centerpiece of their next unit. I think it's more about adding players through the draft than the development of guys who are there now. Remember that Danny Ainge has shown a solid ability to pull contributors from the second round. (Kevin Pelton)
