Default Pierce Nearly Dealt To Portland For 2005 1st Round Pick?

What if, what if, what if!!! Anyone think the Celts would of been a better team with Deron right now than with Pierce?

"We were pretty close," Danny Ainge said.

Ainge likely would have selected point guard Deron Williams.

Future wise yeah, but for the next 2-3 years no because they wouldnt have kg and allen and everyone who followed.

Deron and Jefferson would have been a nice duo though, not as good as Boozer but close.
