I can see Ainge making some really big splashes.
If Ainge comes out of this draft with Wroten/Draymond Green with the 21 and 22 picks he'll be a winner.
But if I'm Ainge I do what I have to do to move up and get either a couple of guys in the draft or a guy in the draft and another young player in the NBA. Drummond, Sullinger, Leonard, Rivers, Ross, Barnes... just a lot of guys who I think are going to have great NBA careers.
The guy you move to do it is Rondo and the reason why is because I believe that Rondo is Doc's masterpiece, or in other words the Celtics will be able to draft and develop guys to be successful playing PG as long as we have Danny and Doc.
I'd be looking to deal with the Kings (especially if you're talking about landing a big man) and try to get the 5 + Evans/Thomas/Fredette/Thompson... one or two of those guys; with Portland go for 6/11 if you can get two guys you really covet. a Barnes/Leonard type combo or maybe Sullinger/Rivers.
Andre Miller, Nash, or even Deron could be targeted in Free Agency as well.
Moving Rondo is akin to being a lotto team the next couple of years
