Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge talks during the introductory press conference of Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter:
“We were very fortunate that they chose the Boston Celtics,” Ainge said as he sat between his two new colleagues at a podium in the practice gym. “We’re very excited about what they bring in many facets of the game, but also as people. Who they are is just as important as what they are on the court and what they represent.”
Ainge said that Walker and Kanter were ‘Plan A’for the Celtics’offseason.
Last year Walker averaged 25.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists while earning All-NBA honors for the Charlotte Hornets.
Kanter ended the season with the Portland Trail Blazers, 23 games with averages of 13 points and 8.6 rebounds
