Danny Ainge: Celtics feel no urgency to trade young players for veteran help

Danny Ainge Celtics

At 25-11, the Boston Celtics are well-positioned in the Eastern Conference, but it doesn’t appear that they’re willing to mortgage the future too much to increase their chances of winning now.

Celtics president Danny Ainge said Friday that he felt no “short-term urgency” to trade young players for veterans, but confirmed the team was exploring the market.

In other words, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are untouchable. It may be that Ainge and the Celtics look for more reasonably-priced veteran help, and they’ve been linked to players of that type already. It seems hard to believe the Celtics will be quiet at the deadline, but as has been the case for the last few years, it doesn’t sound like a blockbuster is coming.
