Overheard on a Celtics online discussion board

with one comment

Somebody made the point that, even if things don’t turn out all that well for Danny Ainge’s rebuilding strategy, the Boston Celtics will actually be in a pretty good position to quickly rebound back into contention. Why? Because each of the three monster contracts they’re currently paying will become extremely valuable commodities  entering their respective final years. So, if, say, Garnett doesn’t quite work out, somebody’s bound to want to unload a younger, talented player in the middle of a multi-year deal to Boston in exchange for the Ticket’s expiring contract (which comes off the cap as it expires, thereby freeing up megadollars that can be used to sign a top player).

Is it possible that Danny Ainge has gone from goat to Auerbachian genius in just a few months?

  1. Or they, could, um, just use the newly freed-up cap space themselves, when the time comes, to sign players.
