Danny Ainge: ‘We’re not comfortable yet’
After the Celtics traded away Avery Bradley on Friday to go along with acquiring Gordon Hayward this week, some may have thought the Celtics’ roster is complete.
Speaking to the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett, president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said the team isn’t yet done making moves.
“No, we’re not comfortable yet,” Ainge said. “We do like our team, but we’re still going to search things out to see if we can find anything that makes us better this offseason.”
The Celtics got Marcus Morris from the Pistons in exchange for Bradley, which meant they kept Jae Crowder even though the team was cutting salaries. Ainge seems to like his veteran power forward.
“Jae is a big part of what we’re doing,” said Ainge. “I mean, he was our best 3-point shooter last year, and he defends some of the top players in the league. Jae’s a very important player for us going forward.”
The Celtics have a great number of forwards on the roster, which could make things complicated for Brad Stevens when it comes to playing time, but Ainge said Stevens is involved in all the moves the team makes.
“Brad is very much involved in all that we do,” said Ainge. “We talk all the time, so I think we know how we think it will all fit. But obviously you never know for sure. We’re trying to get a team that not only is a group of good players, but also a team that does fit.”
