Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on the Toucher and Rich program. The biggest thing that stuck out was this acknowledgement not just about Brad Stevens… but how interested guys at the All Star game really were about Boston.
“Brad is a big plus for us and our organization. Ultimately people are going to come if they get paid and they see an opportunity, but players that are considering coming to Boston want to come because we have a good team and they feel they can add more to our team,” he said. “But they would ask Isaiah anything they can about the city, the coach, the organization as a whole. Isaiah was asked a lot of questions and that’s a good sign.”
It furthers what we were talking about during the All Star game, and it’s a sign that NBA Free Agents have Boston on their radar.
Among the other topics discussed… Kelly Olynyk’s health, how everyone is stepping up in the clutch (especially Jae Crowder), Marcus Smart’s intensity, and how he can’t listen to fans when it comes to making moves. You can listen to his entire hit here.
