Boston Celtics

By Matt Dolloff,

If you’ve been hoping that Danny Ainge has legitimate interest in doing all he can to pry Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans, the latest report from Adrian Wojnarowski may excite you.

Check out Woj’s latest on the Celtics and Davis in his conversation with ESPN’s Zach Lowe in the above video. He essentially describes Ainge as a hawk who’s been circling the Pelicans for a chance to swoop in and snatch the All-NBA big man. He also hints at a potential arms race between the Celtics and … the Lakers. Would there ever be a bigger arms race in sports history?

“Boston has been hawking Anthony Davis for years,” Wojnarowski said. “They always hoped that it would be, whether it’s the end of this season or the beginning of next before the trade deadline, that they would gather up all those assets – all those picks Danny Ainge has, young players – and they’d be the team to be able to get Anthony Davis.

“But now you have L.A. and if they get shut out in free agency, they’re going to have to take all their young players to try to use them to get Anthony Davis.”

Get ready for Danny vs. LeBron (essentially) this summer.
