I think that Nader is between the 8-10 best player in the Celtic organization RIGHT NOW! If he had gotten the chance to be on the big club this year, it would be Smart/6, Olynyk/7, and between JJ and Nader for 8th! I truly believe this! Without DA's shenanigans with salary cap and roster flex, he would already be making his mark this year in Boston!
I guess it's Ainge's job to do, but it's a shame Nader, the team, and us fans had to suffer for it. If Ainge and ownership hadn't had to put on the pretense that we could win a championship this season, Nader's career and the teams progress would be much farther along.
Both Jaylen Brown and Nader should have been playing HEAVY minutes this year!
