What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

I’m still pretty steamed with the Celtics inability to move up in the draft. What’s the point of having all these assets if you aren’t going to use them?

And with the 28th pick… the Celtics select RJ Hunter
