Celtics GM's statement about Isaiah Thomas

"It was the toughest call I ever had to make. It’s in everybody’s best interest that I don’t share all the reasons [for the trade].

But it’s a deep and complicated process. It’s not as simple as people think it is," he added. Further mentioning how honest Isaiah had been about the trade, it made it even more difficult for Danny Ainge to come to terms with the situation. He even acknowledged IT's genuine article on TPT wherein; the former Celtics star poured emotions.

"I feel for players. I’ve been a player. I’ve been traded, and I understand it, and I thought the writing he did was superb," Ainge said. He acted on the trade alone, and as much as he realized that IT did not want to leave Boston, Danny Ainge believes the decision to trade him will be best for the Celtics team. During the primary stage of the Kyrie Irving - Isaiah Thomas trade, the Celtics GM admitted, IT's hip injury played a role in the decision to trade.
