Ainge also provided an update on Hayward's progress after the small forward suffered a leg injury just six minutes into the first game of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

The Celtics went on to make the Eastern Conference Finals without him (and point guard Kyrie Irving). And during an appearance on WEEI's "Dale & Keefe" on Friday, Ainge pointedly reiterated the importance of both Hayward and Irving.

This season, the Boston Celtics got all of five minutes out of their big free-agent signing. "Even though the injury happened to Gordon this year, watching him work and seeing his determination and commitment to excellence, I'm really excited for him this upcoming year". "I want to be here, so that's the plan right now", said Smart.

Though Ainge said he's content with his roster, there will inevitably be changes entering next season. Seeing players like Jayson Tatum rise up becoming successful. wouldn't you agree he did pretty well in his first season as an National Basketball Association player and a Celtic I'd say so?

"We're not going to do something unless it makes us better".

But, there is an issue with the government spying on a campaign. "The president is fine with it, he's innocent", Giuliani said. Is " Spygate " real, or just a figment of President Trump's imagination? "And certainly we've seen this pattern before".

But Irving last appeared in a game March 11.

Due to injuries to Irving, Hayward, Daniel Theis and Shane Larkin, as well as the ineffectiveness of Greg Monroe, Stevens stuck mostly with only seven players as the conference finals progressed.

"To be honest, I'm worth more than $12-14 million", Smart told Jackie MacMullan of ESPN.

"I need one guy from Cleveland to step up and have a nice game: J.R. [Smith]". Irving wore a mask while healing from the facial fracture. In his absence, plenty of Celtics stepped up. Ainge joked: "I don't think he wanted to be seen in public and ruin his movie career".
