So basically nothing new, but read in between the lines all you want.
Danny Ainge was on WEEI for an extended discussion and talked about a lot of stuff but the main topic on people's minds is trades so here's a few comments from him.
"We are open and listening, but we don't feel pressure to do anything," said Ainge. "Whether we win every game or whether we struggle, I think it all depends on what opportunities are presented. We want to make some change to help improve our team."
Has he had any discussions with Paul Pierce about being traded? "No, because nothing has been talked about with Paul or discussed. Nothing is close to being done. I too, would like to see Paul Pierce retire as a Celtic. That would be great. We are all attached to Paul. He’s been great for the city, the franchise, each of us individually, he’s been a true pro. Having said that, if something came up I would talk to Paul, but my job is do what’s best for the Boston fans, and what’s best for the Boston Celtic team, regardless of my personal ties and personal relationships with players."
Read into that however you like.
