Call Danny Ainge With Trade Offer For Pierce

With Rajon Rondo out for the season and three weeks to the trade deadline, all eyes in Boston fall on GM Danny Ainge:

Is he going to blow the thing up? And if he does, would he really trade Paul Pierce? A guy who wants to retire a Celtic?

Ainge was on WEEI radio and said he doesn’t want to trade Pierce, but…

Here’s the transcript, via Celtics Hub. Ainge was asked if he has talked to Pierce about a trade:

“No, because nothing has been talked about with Paul or discussed. Nothing is close to being done. I too, would like to see Paul Pierce retire as a Celtic. That would be great. We are all attached to Paul. He’s been great for the city, the franchise, each of us individually, he’s been a true pro. Having said that, if something came up I would talk to Paul, but my job is do what’s best for the Boston fans, and what’s best for the Boston Celtic team, regardless of my personal ties and personal relationships with players.”
