Ainge on Celtics making more offseason moves: 'We're not comfortable yet'

After weeks of rumors and reports yielded no results, the Boston Celtics have been quite active in the past few days.

They celebrated the Fourth of July by agreeing to a deal with Gordon Hayward, and then traded Avery Bradley to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Marcus Morris on Friday. According to GM Danny Ainge, however, the Celtics might not be done readjusting the roster just yet. 

Speaking to the media in Las Vegas on Friday ahead of the Celtics' Vegas Summer League opener against the Los Angeles Lakers -- a matchup which has generated a sellout crowd -- Ainge told reporters that he still plans to look at ways to improve the roster. Via the Boston Herald: 

"No, we're not comfortable yet," Danny Ainge told the Herald. "We do like our team, but we're still going to search things out to see if we can find anything that makes us better this offseason."

It does not appear, at least based on Ainge's comments, that Jae Crowder, who was reportedly involved in potential sign-and-trade talks with Utah, will be on the move. 

"Jae is a big part of what we're doing," said Ainge. "I mean, he was our best 3-point shooter last year, and he defends some of the top players in the league. Jae's a very important player for us going forward."

One direction the Celtics could go in is looking to acquire some more help for their front court, as they still haven't really addressed their lack rebounding. Boston finished 27th in total rebounding last season.
