Report: Ainge wanted Jahlil Okafor at the Deadline

Wow. Mind = Blown.

So this is quite a shock to the system. After all the talk about Kevin Love, Al Horford, and Dwight Howard being a possible acquisition by the Celtics at the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, Danny Ainge proved again no one really knows what he is scheming.

On multiple phone interviews today Ainge stated that there was a trade in the works but at the last minute the team pulled out. Even though Ainge was ready to pull the trigger, the so called "mystery team" had cold feet and decided not to deal.

Celtics Mid-Term Grades

With a 32-23 record, it's safe to say the 2015-16 campaign has been a success thus far for the Boston Celtics. The C's have made themselves into a serious Eastern Conference Semi-Finals contender and have become a trendy dark horse pick to match up with the Cleveland Cavaliers come Eastern Conference Finals time.

While Boston may still lack the star power of the other top teams in the NBA, they have proven that they are a worthy opponent on any night (See their double O.T. thriller against the Warriors earlier this year and win over the Cavs a few weeks ago).
