Ainge ‘wanted to do right by Paul’ in Trade
In a conversation with Bill Simmons, Danny Ainge talks about the trade that sent Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Nets, saying that a number of factors helped get the deal done, not the least of which was the “connection” Pierce has with Deron Williams and Jason Kidd: they share Jeff Schwartz as an agent.
Ainge also implied that he sent Pierce to a team he wanted to play for. “We wanted to do right by Paul just because of what he’s done for our franchise.”
