Brad Stevens to Replace Danny Ainge as Head of Basketball Operations

Former Celtics head coach Brad Stevens will succeed Danny Ainge and make the transition to head of basketball operations, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. This is in light of the rumors that Ainge has been mulling over his future with the franchise.

It's being reported that Stevens has been "worn down" since coaching in last seasons 'bubble.' The 44-year-old was Boston's ideal replacement for Ainge, as the latter was considering moving on from the franchise for several months now. 


Stevens was the head coach of the Celtics for eight seasons, posting a record of 354-282. He has seven playoff appearances, including three Eastern Conference Finals berths.
