Dan Shaughnessy joins Sports Tonight to give his opinion on what we should be expecting from Danny Ainge.
-- thus play yourself through. Go out and execute game plans and it's going to be as assistant we can be two we give them what. Have these more as an off night so I don't. -- sort of nice to be firm on to view we are -- little solidarity. -- -- -- Are welcome at Boston Globe and -- again Bill Parcells wants that you are what your record says you are but. When you look at the Celtics team are -- a 500 basketball team. I think they're better than that but this what they are right now I just I thought it was going to be better out of the gate at to a tee and into the offseason -- the roster on the bench. We haven't seen results of that. They have been -- come spring time this year I'm not sure it's gonna be that they can't necessarily just step on the gas and make it happen so. It it Bears watching and the division you hate to say some people gotten better. I still can't believe they could ever lose to the next we start to wonder now I -- yeah almost look at it and see. The Celtics are good enough to overcome some of the deficiencies they have in the past they've never been a great. Inside presence team especially since Perkins was -- straightaway is defensive presence is gone but now -- don't have that and they're not as good in other areas try to upset them. You guys reference rebounding. Top of the show and you have that the defense isn't what it's like in the bench. I still you know Jeff Green you know what -- -- I'm still not sure what he is and I -- is coming off the heart ailment but this is a cute right now. It cannot hold the lead a little bit asked who the best most tradable assets of the average around his name comes up obviously Jeff Green thumbs up -- Danny Ainge. Is that your best move right now you get aggressive out there in the trade market trying to upgrade this roster. This is way off you know outside the box I would get to Marcus cousins I know he's -- he's a mental case -- you wanna call there you know but the talent is so great. With this team I wanna see an infusion of youth and talent here. And I am I'm confident dot that's a guy can handle so if you can. You know buy low if you count on this guy I would do it as as outrageous as that sounds I guess the question becomes how much you have to give up you have to take a bad contracts from soccer -- so in addition the cousins to make it happen out what you I think fully Doc Rivers would be able to handle that kind of situation and manage and I think he's that as a coach. Another guy innocent very -- you look at another one that's an inside presence type guy rebounding -- now that might be able to help them in some ways he's like Mike Napoli kills in the local teams he wanted to bring -- -- -- -- he's also great against the locals but got a great flowing heading there due to he's active you know that's the kind of guy any kind of infusion of talent on -- for this team just little bit worried that. You're not -- like percent used -- an excellent one guy they're gonna get back in the theater Bradley sometime hopefully in the next couple weeks you know what kind of impact should we expect from him when he comes back -- It makes a better defensive presence you know pressure on the guard the other side. You know jet goes back to the bench that you live with that and I think this is -- better constituted with that combo then missed some since they haven't had him you know back to last spring so. It only makes matter how how long do you need to see. Avery Bradley healthy with the Celtics the unit. You know that that Danny and doc kind of designed for the season started. And take a look at that team before you make a deal before you address the need do you need to look at that for a while or do you already know what this team needs before Bradley becomes the all those things -- bump up against have him come back the deadline all those kinds of things he's. Have that luxury in my view so you kind of have to know what you wanted to do. And you know what Bradley is what he's going to be so you kind of work within that I've still can make -- outrage steal.
