Boston Celtics Rumor: Team President Danny Ainge Wouldn’t Trade Brooklyn Net’s Pick For Jimmy Butler, But He Would For Paul George According To Reports

Citing a pair of NBA executives, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News wrote this week that Danny Ainge’s willingness to trade the pick should be in doubt.

Isola named Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and Paul George as potential targets, adding that the C’s might include the latter.

Wrote Isola:

Two executives doubt that Ainge, who historically plays it close to the vest, would give up the Nets pick in a deal for Butler. However, Ainge might consider it in a trade for George, the Pacers-free agent-to-be who has expressed doubts over re-signing with the Pacers.

‘With Danny, no one ever knows what he might do,’ said the executive. ‘He’s one of the best. If he thinks he can make a run at the Cavs this season, considering all the injuries Cleveland has had, I can see him making a move.

‘Everyone is talking about Butler to Boston but Danny and Larry Bird go way back. Paul George could be the sleeper.’

This season, the 26-year-old George is averaging 22.3 points 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists a game.
