“I think it’s 50-50, but it may be a small deal,” he said in an interview Thursday morning on Boston sports radio station WEEI. “It may be not as exciting as people may expect. But we’re working hard, we’ll work hard the rest of the day until 3’oclock.”
“I think our team has great chemistry and our team, is maximizing its talent level,” Ainge said. “I don’t think that there’s necessarily a change that’s needed, other than we need to bolster up our front line just to eat away minutes. KG and Brandon are eating up a ton of minutes.”
Ainge also address the omnipresent rumors about potentially dealing point guard Rajon Rondo. He reiterated that Rondo wasn’t going anywhere before Thursday’s deadline.
“We haven’t even had discussions about Rondo,” Ainge said. “He hasn’t even been mentioned since the summertime. I’ve fielded calls and there’s been interest because of all the media discussion, but I have not reached out to anybody.”
