Danny’s Dilemmas

Knowing what we do about Danny Ainge, it is unlikely he will settle for the path of least resistance. My educated guess is that the moment he determines the team does not have a realistic chance of winning a title, that minor tweaking or a trade or an MLE free agent cannot fix the problem, he will implement a comprehensive plan to retool. The refusal to sign James Posey in 2008 was an indication that Danny is not going to sacrifice the future for the present. As much as Danny loves the C's tradition, I don’t think he would have any qualms about trading anyone on the roster – anyone – if he thought it would improve the team’s chances of ultimately returning to legitimate contention.
