but you hope ainge does something with his assets.. right now it's starting to feel like he had poor asset management when he stock piled so many picks but didnt use them to get a big name.. it'll seem that way if he doesnt end up getting deep into playoffs.
Danny Ainge definitely wasted his assets. Many fans and analysts thought they'd be the team to beat in the future with all the draft picks they stockpiled. Those same assets turned into mostly crap players not including (Tatum, brown).
For instance Brooklyn for all there asset trading are right back in the playoff hunt and have been before Kyrie and KD. Boston while good don't have the ceiling the Brooklyn has because they couldn't parlay their assets into quality players.
Brown/Tatum are Nets draft picks obtained from the KG/Pierce trade. Brown just signed an extension and was in contention for the all star team this season.
Tatum is signing a max this summer and is a stud.
That is amazing asset management
Yup, and that third BKN pick was used to trade for a big name, and we all saw what happened where the player left as a FA. Worse case scenario keeping both tatum and brown is that the celts have two young all star caliber wings to build around. All in all, not too shabby. Worse case scenario trading for a Kawhi or AD is that they play for the celts for a season then walk.
