By   |  Comments Off on Danny Ainge’s 25 most consequential trades: 14. Goodbye, Jiri Welsch

Over the next month, we’ll chronicle the 25 most consequential trades of Danny Ainge’s tenure as Celtics president of basketball operations. When we’re done, we’ll have a better understanding of Ainge’s philosophy and success rate on the trade market. Perhaps by the end of this exercise we’ll even feel better about the future of this rebuild. At the very least, we’ll have something interesting to debate while we wait for training camp to open.

With that out of the way, here’s No. 14 on the list of Danny Ainge’s 25 most consequential trades.

Perhaps by the end of this exercise we’ll even feel better about the future of this rebuild. At the very least, we’ll have something interesting to debate while we wait for training camp to open.

With that out of the way, here’s No. 21 on the list of Danny Ainge’s 25 most consequential trades.

Feb. 8, 2005: Goodbye, Walter McCarty. ARRIVING in Boston

  • Golden State’€™s 2007 second-round pick (Aaron Gray): Phoenix owned this future selection and its own second-rounder. At the time of the trade, the Suns owned a 38-11 record and the Warriors a 13-35 record, so this seemed like a safer bet to be the higher pick. Sure enough, Golden State was slotted 49th in 2007 and Phoenix 59th. By that time, though, Ainge had already swapped this pick in exchange for Denver’s 2006 second-rounder (also 49th) in order to draft a player the Celtics identified as a value pick: Leon Powe.

DEPARTING to Phoenix

  • Walter McCarty: Inarguably the most popular non-star on the late 1990’s/early 2000’s Celtics, McCarty was coming off his two best seasons — averaging 6.9 points (54.1 true shooting percentage), 3.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.2 minutes off the bench for a pair of playoff teams — and Tommy Heinsohn’s “I love Waltah” fan club was in full effect. He had also just celebrated his 31st birthday and had one NBA season left in his legs.
