Danny Ainge: Take the Best Player Available

Marcus ShockleyCorrespondent IAugust 10, 2010

Danny Ainge is not resting on his laurels during the "biggest" summer free agent season in memory. While most of the attention has been focused on Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh teaming up in Miami, Ainge has been making moves to keep the Boston Celtics at the top of the NBA.

Danny's moves during the off season started in the draft, just a few days after the Celtics fell to the Lakers in the NBA Final, and moved into the summer, bringing in veterans Shaquille O'Neal and Jermaine O'Neal.

In this exclusive interview with Ainge, he talks about his thoughts on where the Celtics are and his philosophy in drafting players regardless of their age.
