Ainge not looking to upgrade at PG spot

Some more of the same from Ainge.

"Well, not right now. There's a lot of reasons why we're not just jumping out and doing something right now," Ainge told WEEI. "I mean, there really is nobody that you're going to find to replace Rondo, obviously, through trade or through free agent acquisition at this time of year with our (financial) inflexibility. But I think that we like the guys (we have). I mean, (Leandro) Barbosa's been dying for a chance to play and Jason Terry and Avery (Bradley) playing some more point position. I think all of those guys are looking for an opportunity, so I think it's a chance for us to see those guys play without Rondo playing and just see what they're capable of doing."

Speculation mounted once news of Rondo's injury spread that Ainge would look to make drastic changes to the Celtics' roster. Ainge has since downplayed those thoughts, and noted Thursday that while the team will explore some potential changes, it doesn't "feel pressured" to make any moves at this time.

"So, first of all, whether we win every game or whether we struggle, I think it all depends on what  opportunities are presented," Ainge said. "So we are open and listening and we'll have discussion in regarding a lot of different possibilities, but we don't feel pressured to do anything. I think that we want to make some change to help improve our team as we always do, but we don't feel pressured to."


It wouldn't be a Celtics season if Danny didn't have to deal with the trade questions. I think his statement has been the same since 2009. My thoughts of Danny have changed in the past year. He slowly won me over. The Perk pill has been easier to swallow, not really. But Danny had to make the move, because the owners wanted him to. The Celtics need a big first in my book. What do you think? Point guard or center?

I'd say center. And I agree about Danny.

Our guards are solid and more than capable. Like Danny said, whatever point guard we could get at this point would be warming the bench.

With Sully hurting a bit by adjusting to the grueling NBA schedule, Bass trying to come into his own, Wilcox possibly injury prone, and Jason Collins.... is Jason Collins lol.... yeah we need a big man.
