Danny Ainge Booking Agent Details

Danny Ainge played in the NBA as a point guard from 1981-1995, most notably with the Boston Celtics (1981-1989) and later the Sacramento Kings (1989-1990), Portland Trail Blazers (1990-1992) and Phoenix Suns (1992-1995). Ainge played in six NBA Finals and won two with Boston in 1984 and 1986. He currently serves as the Celtics’ president of basketball operations, a position he’s held since 2003. In 2008, Ainge was named the NBA Executive of the Year by The Sporting News.

During the Celtics’ title run in 1983-1984, Ainge was used primarily in reserve, coming off the bench in 68 of Boston’s 71 regular season games along with 19 postseason games. However, by 1985-1986, he had blossomed into one of the Celtics’ primary weapons. For the regular season, he averaged 10.7 points per game and shot 50.4% from the floor. In the playoffs, he upped his stats to 15.6 points per game, a postseason career-best for him. Ainge earned NBA All-Star honors in 1988 when he averaged 15.7 points per contest while playing a career-high 37.3 minutes per game. In total for his career, he recorded a per game average of 11.5 points, 4.0 assists and 1.1 steals. At the time he retired, Ainge was one of just three players in the history of the NBA to make 1,000 or more three-point shots in a career (1,002). The other two were Reggie Miller and Dale Ellis.

Prior to the NBA, Ainge was a collegiate standout at BYU, where in 1981 he won the Eastman Award and John R. Wooden Award as the nation’s top collegiate basketball player. His jersey #22 was retired by the Cougars in 2003. After his playing days and prior to working in the Celtics front office, Ainge worked for TNT as an analyst on its coverage of the NBA. He then served as head coach of the Phoenix Suns from 1996-2000. In 2006, Ainge was honored by the NCAA with its prestigious Silver Anniversary Award.
