Danny AInge knows how to trade a player or two to acquire more picks in the NBA Draft. He proved that when he did well to maximize the return from dealing players such as Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. He has also demonstrated that he is knowledgeable when it comes to trading away picks to acquire big name players, as evidenced when he dealt for Garnett and Ray Allen. Sadly, after once again witnessing a perplexing NBA Draft for the Boston Celtics, Ainge has proven once again that he does not understand the complete draft process.
Sure, AInge has selected players such as Rondo and Al Jefferson. Both are perennial NBA All-Stars. Neither are still with the organization.
