The NBA Trade Deadline passed this past Thursday with the Celtics making 2 deals before the deadline. The 2 moves had Celtics fans going at it with each other on whether they liked or hated the moves but also had Celtics/NBA insiders and Reporters viewing the moves as Danny Ainges way of saying he is giving up on the season and is already looking towards the 2021/2022 NBA Season. The Celtics this past Wednesday night played the Milwaukee Bucks with several players on the team wondering if they were playing in their final game as members of the Boston Celtics 1 of those players being Marcus Smart whos name was rumoed to be moved to Orlando for Aaron Gordon. The Celtics had their chance to win at the buzzard but a wide open 3 by Daniel Theis in the corner hit the back of the rim and bounced out sealing a 2 point win for the Bucks. The next afternoon Danny Ainge made a trade for soon to be free agent Guard Evan Fournier. The Celtics in exchange sent 2 2nd round picks to Orlando and 17.5 Million out of the 28 million dollar Gordon Hayward TPE. Danny Ainge ultimately finished his day with a 3 team trade sending Celtics starting C Daniel Theis to Chicago and backup PG Jeff Teague and G Javonte Green to Washington in exchange for soon to be free agents C Luke Kornet and F Moritz Wagner. This deal was the Celtics way of getting themselves under the Tax line and it was reported it was likely Ainge would not add any more players the rest of the season. The next night it was Celtics vs Bucks round 2. The Celtics started Robert Williams at Center and it seemed like a new team with more energy and Boston won 122-114. So how do we feel about the moves? Did Danny Ainge officially give up and what are the media members saying about his decision and how is it likely gonna impact the future? How about the Celtics and the Bucks games did the Celtics performances change our mind on the teams outlook for the season?
