If Ainge and ownership was shooting for a title they would have put themselves in a different position at the beginning of the year with a roster complimented by veterans, not unproven rookies. The timeline changed when Gordon left. Now it is about evaluating & developing Tatum and Brown. These are the growing pains of having 2 extremely young players leading the way. Young players do not generally win NBA championships regardless of how talented they are or will become.
That is an untruth, imo.
I dont think Management knows what side of the fence to get off on, or, Brad and Danny dont agree on which side to get off the fence on.
If we were evaluating and expecting the timeline to have changed since Gordon left then we would:
1) not have signed Teague and Thompson
2) would not have traded a draft pick away because we :cannot have too many rookies on team"
3) would not have split the MLE and used half of it on the expiring Fournier
4) we would be playing the young guys as many minutes as possible.
if we were planning on going for it all this season then we have made some terrible moves to make that happen.
Team is in purgatory.
