Danny Ainge Retires, Celtics Promote Brad Stevens to Front Office Position

Big changes are coming to Boston this offseason.

The morning after the Brooklyn Nets eliminated the Boston Celtics from the postseason, the team’s long-time President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge has chosen to step down from his post and retire.

The 62-year old executive spent the majority of his playing career with the Celtics and has led the team’s front office since 2003. Over his close to 20-year tenure with the organization, Ainge has led the Celtics to one NBA championship and orchestrated one of the grandest trade steals in all of professional sports in recent memory when he moved the aging Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets for picks that ultimately allowed the Celtics to draft All-Stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Stepping into his place is none other than Brad Stevens.

The Celtics head coach will relinquish his position and will now serve as the team’s new president of basketball operations. The Celtics will now look to hire a new head coach and have reportedly identified Lloyd Pierce and Jason Kidd early on in the process as potential candidates.

After a disappoint 36-36 season, the Celtics will look to re-tool and get back to contending status.
