Danny Ainge spoke one week ahead of the NBA Draft about the Celtics strategy with the 14, 26, and 30 picks, plus a second rounder. He doesn’t see Boston selecting four players and has talked to every team in the NBA about trades. There’s been tons of conversation, he said, and if a deal makes sense Boston will strike. He also updated Kemba Walker, who he expects to be ready for the season in December with his knee injury, but may require some maintenance. Ainge is targeting shooting and athleticism in the draft, which is on Wed. Nov. 18.
