Rajon Rondo is still a Boston Celtic. Ray Allen is still a Boston Celtic. As it turned out, all the sound and fury really signified nothing. The smoke must have been put out by a park ranger because there's no fire burning right now.
The offseason isn't over, and there's still time for trades to occur. But they happen a lot more frequently on draft night.
Ainge told us that it would likely be a quiet night and we didn't believe him. But the Boston war room sat and watched the events unfold and simply picked their selection at #58. I'm sure they listened to offers, but nothing worth moving on came up.
Next up: The free agent market. Ainge has promised that they'll be aggressive. That party starts on July 1st.
Good night sweet world. Time for bed. I can rest easy knowing that the core of our team is still intact.
