Ainge: We Are Exploring Trade Options with the Brooklyn Nets Pick
In his weekly appearance with Toucher and Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Ainge confirmed the Celtics are listening to offers, including deals that involve the 2017 Brooklyn Nets first round draft pick.
“Yes they have [started],” Ainge said when asked about potential trade talks. “Nothing is close or imminent, but there are people calling [about the Brooklyn pick]. It’s a valuable pick so we’re going to explore that.”
Ainge also spoke about the prospects in this upcoming draft;
“Every draft is different,” Ainge explained. “I think that sometimes you have the top one is better than other drafts…This one is a little bit more equal in the top few picks of the draft as it appears right now. This is something that we’re spending all our time (on). We have people all over the world evaluating this as we speak. So I think that at this point in time, I think that, yeah, there’s four or five guys. There’s not a lot of separation at the top of this draft.”
