“We’re going to go after any and everybody that we think is a significant player to upgrade our talent,” (Boston Celtics President Danny) Ainge said. “And when I say upgrade our talent, like, you’ve gotta be pretty good to upgrade our talent because we have good players. So we’re going after all the top names on the list. And we’ll see what happens.”

“We often talk about transcendent players and stars, but I think the hardest skill to find in our league is guys that can score in the fourth quarter,” he said. “The last six minutes of the game type scorers. Offensive creators. Usually the offensive patterns don’t score baskets at that time. Usually it’s individuals and talent. And I think that that’s always a priority. Regardless of need by position, those kind of players are hard to find.”
