It may have been Danny's way of forgiving the team for a lackluster run this year or it could be a hint of an off-season of major upheaval in the coming months, but Danny didn't mince words when it came to the future of the franchise:
"We're more than one player away, unless it's a great player," Ainge said. "It'll be tough to become a championship team from where we are." While Ainge reiterated that he expects Rajon Rondo to be ready for the start of training camp, he had no updates on Garnett other than his hunch. Ainge will give Garnett about a week to "chill" before touching base with the 36-year-old big man about his future. Garnett is signed through 2015.
