The IT situation is totally unrelated to Kemba's. When they were weighing options on IT, he WAS hurt. Moreover, their roster looked VERY different from what it does now.Color me skeptical on Kemba. They Celtics didn't want to back the Brinks truck up for pre-injury IT, but they're going to do it for Walker?
Is this a situation where Ainge is just trying to recover from losing Kyrie for no compensation? Or is Kemba really a top 15-20 player who has a chance to stay that elite for another three or four years?
And once Kyrie and Horford opted out, Danny's situation changed. Does he roll with the young guys, or does he try to do something with a max (or close to max) guy? Kemba seems to be available, and frankly, he's a terrific player. They certainly would need to add a big, but that team very likely can be pretty seriously competitive in the Eastern Conference.
I don't know if this is the right play, but honestly it has nothing whatsoever to do with IT.
