Bucher: Ainge on Phoenix Wish List

The key, though, is that it’s a wish list. Read Ric Bucher’s piece carefully, and you’ll notice no mention of Ainge having any interest in the Phoenix GM job or the Celtics making Ainge available for an interview:

The Phoenix Suns have been granted permission to talk to San Antonio Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey about being their next GM on the condition they wait until after Thursday’s draft, league sources said Tuesday.

While Lindsey appears to be at the top of the Suns’ list, he is not the only candidate in which owner Robert Sarver is interested.

Sources said Sarver also hopes to talk to Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge, former New Jersey Nets assistant GM Kiki Vandeweghe and former Portland Trail Blazers assistant GM Tom Penn.

I’d like to talk to Danny Ainge, too.

I’d like to ask him about the C’s plans for the mid-level exception and how close they really got to dealing Ray Allen or Rajon Rondo. That doesn’t mean I’m going to get to talk to Danny Ainge, just like this report doesn’t mean Robert Sarver—whose legendary cheapness cost the Suns Rajon Rondo and, possibly, Steve Kerr—has any shot of luring Ainge to Phoenix.

But Ainge has a track record now, which means he’ll be in the conversation when GM jobs open up. Can you imagine if the C’s lost Ainge, Rivers, Thibodeau and Ray Allen in the same off-season? Don’t worry—it won’t happen.

    Let us hope to god it doesn’t happen. If we lost all of ’em, we would head downhill quick.


    He can always be assistant assistant assistant to Mitch Kupchack, he’s so good at what he does, no need to deny him any more rings. :)


    :) I’m sorry I’m such an ass . . . . but I’m loving this . . . . Thanks for being such good sports bean town

    Imagine? That would make losing game 7 of the finals seem like an enjoyable memory. Add pierce into the mix. Add a few injuries next year. And the Celtics probably wouldn’t make the playoffs.

    Ainge is just too smart to work for an idiot like Sarver.

  • Rich

    Everyone has wish lists. Just like Boston fans think Joe Johnson or Rudy Gay are coming here, PHX thinks Ainge is going there.

    Bucks are adding CDR to Maggette. The deer are on the move…

  • dont_drink_the_koolaid

    @Cptn: Fear the deer. I love both those moves. That team is officially legit.

    @rich: no joe johnson please. rudy is welcome anytime.

  • Rich

    Is there some reason that people really like the CDR move? Did I miss the day when he actually became productive for a terrible team, in which it’s easy to be productive on? I mean…the guy might not even be worth the 44th pick.

  • dont_drink_the_koolaid

    @rich: i like both the bucks moves cause they are both players that have the tools, but have never been in a situation that helped squeeze the most out of their talent. underacheivers are perfect for skiles.

    also, bucks will never attract a big name FA so maggette makes a lot of sense. and they dumped their their two worst players with bad contracts. and cdr was basically free….him and jennings will click well.

    Here’s hoping Ainge and Rivers both stick around. Losing Thibodeaux was bad enough.
