Danny Ainge Says Trade Unlikely

Though he acknowledged talking a lot of calls, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Tuesday he thought it was unlikely his team makes a trade before Thursday’s deadline.

“It looks unlikely that anything will be done, other than possibly some players we will add to our roster,” Ainge told the Boston Herald in Denver, where his Celtics face the Nuggets on Tuesday night. “Not sure yet of what that will be.

“There’s been a lot of conversation around the league, and we’ve been very busy. Trades are very challenging to make, and then on top of that we like our guys. I like watching this team play, I like the personality of our team. We just need to find a way to give them the best chance to win with the resources we have.”
