Ainge Manages Expectations

Just in case you were getting a little too giddy about the draft, Danny wants to pour some cold water on your expectations.   From the AP:

Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge doesn't expect to draft a player who can help the NBA champions next season.

Ainge said Wednesday there are some players he wouldn't select unless they agreed to play overseas and develop for a couple of years. He also said a trade for a better pick would be a real longshot.

Ainge also says he hopes to re-sign James Posey, but may not sign all of his current players who are eligible for free agency.
