On Boston sports radio Wednesday, SI.com reported that Celtics GM Danny Ainge wants a king's ransom for his players in trade offers, including asking for first-round picks in exchange for Jeff Green and Avery Bradley. From WEEI: ”??I've had conversations with a couple of different general managers last night, and we talked a little bit about Boston and what they were trying to do at the trade deadline, and the sense I got from them was that Boston is totally overvaluing some of the players they have. They'??re looking for first-round picks in return for guys like Jeff Green or a guy like Avery Bradley and others and they'??re just not going to get it.” via Green Street » Chris Mannix on D&C: Rajon Rondo will ‘be with this team through the offseason'. That's... probably not going to happen. First-round picks are not only at a premium due to the high amount of talent in this year's class compared to most, but they're scarce, since many teams already dealt theirs or immediate upgrades. The Pelicans, Pacers, Timberwolves are among the teams who have moved their picks.
