Right now, Brandon is with us and Brandon may be with us next year and the year after that as well.
What I like about Brandon, he just … he's never satisfied with his role. He goes about his job the same, every day. He's a rare guy in that he's getting better. I think he’s better right now than he's ever been in his career. And I think his upside is still ahead of him.
Bass is a free agent at season's end, so Ainge is implying that not only is he considering not trading the power forward, he may even re-sign him to a new contract. What does this actually mean?
Of course Ainge says this. If you're trying to trade a guy you obviously want to convince other teams that A) you don't need to move him, and B) he's awesome. All part of the game...
