Danny the Dealer has his work cut out for him. Nothing that happened in Thursday night’s NBA Draft changed that. The Celtics’ future hinges on what moves Ainge has up his sleeve, because the hand the Celtics are playing isn’t as strong as expected. If the draft was any indication, there are no quick fixes for Ainge and the Green. They’re going to have to bide their time and wait for the NBA soap opera to spin in their direction like a roulette wheel, providing them their opportunity to steal a scene and a difference-maker.
