Two picks.  Miami wasn't giving the pick up.

IIRC it was reported there were 4 or 5 guys Ainge liked at #14, including Herro, Washington and Langford. So he might have been indifferent when Langford was there at 14.

Herro has been great.

School's still out on Romeo.
IIRC2 there was speculation he would try to move up to around 5 to get Garland for PG.

No telling as well how high CHA was on PJ.  Would the 14 plus an added pick have gotten Bo's to 12?

Mistake was if he didn't try.

Since also traded himself out of Mattias Thybulle and Brandon Clarke - likely since he craved some of prospects.

How do you know he didn't try?

But rather he thought the ask was too high to move up two spots if he was generally indifferent to several players at 14?

The move I didn't get that year was the trade at 20 to Philly for 2nd rounders.

All reports are Ainge was rightfully enamored of Herro

Wasn't second rounders for the 20 - which as I said could have been Thybulle or Clarke.

Was 24 and 33 - where Danny got his PG prospect Edwards and eventually a 2020 Bucks first rounder.

It was convoluted as hell-they traded the 20 and they got Edwards and Waters last year in the 2nd round, after that I lost track.

Much as it pains me to give Jackson any props, his sense of Porzingis' susceptibility to injury was not entirely unfounded, though his motivations in terms of a trade, were equal parts good and evil. 

In Porzingisís case, do you know how many players 7-3 or taller have played 1,000 NBA games? Freaking zero of them, thatís how many. Even off-the-charts talents like Yao and Sampson have seen the curtain close early on their careers due to lower extremity injuries. Mark Eaton is the world record holder in this class at 875 games; his longevity trick was to never, ever jump, even while leading the league in blocked shots.

I bet if Kareem was one inch taller he would have broken down and played much less than 1500 games.

Who cares about 1000 games.  That's a 14 year career. 
700 games is a solid 10 year career.

And most (all?) of the players 7'3" or taller were not nearly as skilled as KZ.

KP needs to watch tape of late stage Rick Smits from the Indy playoff runs and adjust his game accordingly.

Hmmm.   That's been there since he forced his way out.  Might need updating.
