Danny Ainge on Celtics draft: 'We tried hard to trade up'

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge knows he might have set some unfairly high expectations for his team when he pledged earlier this week to attempt to move up in the 2015 NBA draft. A ceaseless rumor mill didn't help temper the hopes of his fan base, one that salivated at the prospect of adding impact talent.

So when the Celtics failed to shuffle up on Thursday night, Ainge admitted he was disappointed. But he's adamant it wasn't for a lack of trying.

The Celtics made multiple efforts to move up the draft board, including a spirited run at Charlotte's No. 9 pick when Duke's Justise Winslow lingered on the draft board. Boston ultimately settled for utilizing the four picks it entered the night with.

a lot of negativity toward celtics for not moving up in draft .. Hard to make a deal without another team working with you ..

I like the positioning of players to trade and money to spend to build the next championship team .. I am patient when the team plays like it did in 2nd half of last season ..
