Ainge on trade rumors

29

"When you receive calls, you might not find a partner and a deal that’s satisfactory, so you try to get two or three or four teams involved. That’s where a lot of the rumors get started, and misconstrued -- what the purposes of each team is -- so sometimes you’re calling on behalf of doing a deal that’s part of another deal. And so the accuracy of some of the rumors are’t there. I expect a lot of trade rumors over the next couple months for sure."
