Celtics’ ‘fireworks’ are duds
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.
