BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has a busy off season ahead of him.

Armed with six guaranteed first-round picks in the next three years – including the sixth and 17th pick in this year’s draft – Ainge is faced with the decision to either rebuild through the draft or package his assets in a deal for a star.  It’s no secret that the organization has interest in trading for Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love.

Celtics’ Radio Network play-by-play man Sean Grande joined Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Gresh and Zo show and told Celtics fans to expect anything.

“Absolutely nothing is off-limits. When you’ve lost 32 of 35 games as the Celtics did last season, and you are starting from scratch – which in many ways you are – that’s the beauty of Danny Ainge here. The beauty of the situation that he’s created,” said Grande. ” They’ve created so many options and so many different ways to go.”

While Grande notes that NBA stars are drawn to play in warm-weather areas, he argues that Boston stars share a special bond with the city. Look no further than what happened this year.

“To me, the resonate moments of this year were not games – I mean you can talk about the Jeff Green shot if you want – but what I will remember this year that was significant was Doc Rivers coming back, Paul Pierce coming back, and Kevin Garnett coming back. And their reaction to the city and the city’s reaction to them.  I said that night, ‘Somebody is watching. The next guy is watching from somewhere around the league saying I want to be the next guy in Boston.'”
