Nevertheless, the Celtics remain determined to acquire [Anthony] Davis after the season, and Celtics GM Danny Ainge has directly urged [Dell] Demps to wait until the offseason, when the Celtics have promised to be aggressive with their wealth of draft and player assets to try to acquire Davis, league sources said. Ainge is anxious to trade for Davis and pair him with [Kyrie] Irving, sources said.

Boston’s plan to pursue Davis remains unaffected by whatever decision Irving might make in summer free agency, league sources said. Irving, 26, had previously said he planned to re-sign with the Celtics in the summer but has recently wavered in public on that promise. Although the Celtics can’t be positive on Irving’s forthcoming decision in July, they do remain confident he’ll choose to stay in Boston, sources said. The Celtics also believe that a deal for Davis would help solidify his confidence in re-signing with the organization, sources said.
