    He missed the deadline period. He wasn’t going to get anything of value now

    From another user:

    "Which brings us to Ainge...what an idiot! You had the ability to S&t Hayward, for something and instead got nothing. He could have taken in Batum with some Charlotte draft compensation and I’m sure Mitch would oblige instead of stretch waiving Batum and eating all that dead cap. Then Ainge reroutes Batum to Okc into that 27.5m TPE with either some of Charlotte’s or Boston’s draft compensation cause you know Presti wants it all...and that way Ainge creates a 27.1m TPE for him to use in bringing in a disgruntled star on a distressed contract. Instead dude loses Hayward for nothing. Congratulations, you played yourself."


    Ainge sucks dude.

    Al Horford. Kyrie Irving. Gordon Hayward. All marquee players. All of them lost with the Celtics getting nothing in return. That's just not a good look at all.

    I'm not gonna say Danny Ainge sucks. He just concluded his 16th season as President of BBall Ops. Thirteen playoff appearances, six conference finals, two NBA Finals appearances and one NBA title in that span...during a span of time where the professional game has been dominated by Lebron James, one the five best players in history. That's a better resume than a lot of other people in his job by a wide margin...but it could and should be better.

    [Michael] Yes, you’re reading correctly: The #Pacers offer for Gordon Hayward included a 1st rd pick but Cs held out for another starter.

    The Indiana Pacers offered the Boston Celtics Myles Turner, a first-round pick and a rotation player for Gordon Hayward last week, a source with knowledge of the negotiations told IndyStar.
    “We pursued as hard as we possibly could,” Pacers president Kevin Pritchard said about Hayward via Zoom call with media Wednesday. “If you can add a player that materially improves you, you have to take a shot. ... It hurt a little bit more this time because the feedback was he wanted to be here. We were probably overpaying in the trade but we were willing to try to get a special player. It can't come at a cost that's so debilitating that it doesn't make sense."
    The deal fell apart because the Pacers wouldn’t include a second starter instead of a bench player, a source with knowledge of the negotiations said. The Pacers didn’t have any cap space, so it was the only way to consummate the deal.
    Celtics president Danny Ainge had his bluff called, but not by the Pacers. The Charlotte Hornets signed the deal to give Hayward $120 million over 4 years and then Ainge wanted to go back to Indiana to negotiate in “good faith” with Indiana.
    It was Hayward’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, who pulled the plug on it. Hayward was heading to Charlotte.

    You don't have leverage in a S+T after players opts out.


    Pacers made a hefty courtesy offer and Dirtbag Danny got his hand stuck in the cookie jar again

    Imagine thinking Ainge had leverage and did good there. Yep good work getting NOTHING for a 3rd star walking away for free. Classic retard Loston fan. Cant even see whats in front of him. Kinda like Ainge.
