Danny Ainge: Isaiah Thomas 'Part of Celtic History Forever'

Danny Ainge: Isaiah Thomas 'Part of Celtic History Forever'

Because of that, Ainge is able to view the recent comments of former Celtic Isaiah Thomas - who recently told Sports Illustrated that he might never talk to Ainge again after being traded to the Cavaliers in the offseason -with a measured tone.

The 5-foot-9 scoring point guard was on his way back from a one-year anniversary vacation with his wife Kayla before he received a call from Ainge informing him about the trade that had just taken place. (But) I might not ever talk to Danny again. "I'll talk to everybody else", he said. But what he did, knowing everything I went through, you don't do that, bro.

"I'm not saying eff you", Thomas said.

"That's what they'll say, too".

Mum-of-eight eight dies in freak skydiving accident for 50th birthday
In a statement issued this evening, Skydive Australia said it had suspended operations at Mission Beach following the tragedy. The victims - two men in their 30s and a woman in her 50s - were taking part in a jump at Mission Beach in Queensland.

On Wednesday, Danny Ainge responded to Thomas' quote. "I mean, I know there is a lot of feelings that go on when these type of things happen", Ainge told reporters, via CBS Sports. So, I understand his sentiments, but you guys know how much I love Isaiah. They've got really good players and a great coach.

Ainge was asked if he'd ever try to clear the air with Thomas. Thomas, who said he's wrestled with the decision to rest his hip instead of having surgery, has been working out and hopes to return before then. The love is mutual - nowhere in Thomas' career, it seems safe to say, has he felt as loved and accepted as he did playing for the Celtics.

However, that wasn't to be the case, as Thomas was traded by the Celtics to their Eastern Conference rivals as part of the super trade between the two teams involving Kyrie Irving, along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, the rights to the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round draft pick, as well as a 2020 second-round draft pick via the Miami Heat.

"It was very emotional". "We had an idea once we signed Gordon (Hayward) that something had to be done to clear the cap space for him, so we knew ultimately there would be a trade (of Avery Bradley). With the Isaiah and Jae trade, that was such an unusual situation to have a trade between these two teams with that caliber of players on both sides", he said.
