I'd do that, doubt we get that.
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
Is it fair to label this draft "The Year of the Foot"...???

"I've never been scared of contact. Now I get to bring it, that's what I love to do, so I'm going to bring it."
GET OFF YOUR HEELS BILL !!!
First post and he's already talking Rondo smh
Should be an interesting night! A lot of hype around this draft, prob see some more player movement too after a few trades went down last night
My wish list is Smart n Warren
If we draft Smart we don't have to get rid of Rondo...
If DAnny believes Embiid will drop to #6, does he still try to move up in the draft order?
My hunch is that he does. I think he targets Parker. The kid's game really reminds me of a young PP.
My preference is that he does not. I'm okay with minimal moves and keeping the picks. If he does anything I hope it is to ship Bass (& cash?) to a contender and obtain a late first round pick in exchange.
Just let Bradley & Bayless walk. Waive Bogans. Sign Hill & Meeks if affordable. In general just continue accumulating assets to be used next summer.
I dont understand why anyone still wants Saric when he may not be over for 2-3 years and even that isnt guaranteed.
Im not wasting a top 20 pick in this draft on him anymore. Once he's over it's going to take him another year or two to acclimate.
This is interesting:

Sources: Cavs were calling around offering teams Orlando's picks at 4 & 12 for players last night. Interesting.
So, do you think Orlando was trading those picks to Cleveland OR was Orlando going to facilitate something else for Cleveland by trading those picks elsewhere? The rumors swirling around Afflalo come to mind.
Told y'all.Suddenly, Embiid’s stock started dropping, which created chaos at the top of the draft. Teams scrambled to gather medical information on him, while some speculated that Embiid could fall out of the top 10. All that happened within days of the draft, giving teams a curveball that they won’t see often, if ever. “It’s a pretty unique situation,” said Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. But on the eve of the draft, several league sources said that Embiid could fall to the Celtics at the sixth pick — and that the Celtics are expected to grab him if he’s there. Boston Globe
Embiid at 6 would be ideal for me. I didn't think we had a chance at first but the closer the draft gets I have a feeling we might get lucky.
