Celtics just Made A Right Move For The Future



The Boston Celtics took major strides forward this past season that saw them earn the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference after finishing with a 48-34 record in the regular season. The organization is headed in the right direction with a formidable young team. This has led the Celtics to reward both general manager Danny Ainge and head coach Brad Stevens with contract extensions, according to a team press release.

 “A major job of ownership is to find the right people to run the basketball side,” Grousbeck said. “We believe we have found them in Danny and Brad.”

“Once you find your people,” he continued, “you need to support them in their efforts and create a work environment that enables them and the team to succeed. If all of that is in place, the topic of extending contracts becomes an easy one, because everybody wants to keep moving forward together.”

Stevens has quickly brought stability to the franchise that has equated to much early success. Boston has made the playoffs in each of his first two seasons. Steven has also garnered much respect around the league as one of the best coaches in the league despite being just 39 years old.

Ainge has put together a roster that’s full of young talent led by point guard Isaiah Thomas, who earned his first All-Star Game selection this past season. The decision has created long-term security at two of the most important positions within the organization. This could also have a huge positive impact on their expected pursuit of Kevin Durant in free agency. The team has reportedly already had discussions with Durant’s agent about possibly joining the team this summer.
