Celtics’ ‘fire­works’ are duds

Metro USA (Boston) - - SPORTS -

One of the only ways media and fans were able to hold back laugh­ter when the Celtics drafted Louisville guard Terry Rozier on an all-time reach at No. 16 over­all last Thurs­day night was the idea that Celtics boss Danny Ainge had a block­buster trade loom­ing. That hasn’t yet hap­pened

and on Satur­day, MassLive.com re­ported that Celtics brass aren’t op­ti­mistic that they can lure a free agent big man to Bos­ton

this sum­mer. Jay King wrote that sources within the Celtics or­ga­ni­za­tion now don’t be­lieve it’s pos­si­ble to nab a Kevin Love, Marc Ga­sol, DeAn­dre Jor­dan or LaMar­cus Aldridge in free agency. Teams can be­gin ne­go­ti­at­ing with free

agents on Wed­nes­day.
