March 15 2012 at 8:53pm CDT By Sean Highkin

The latest news and notes on the Boston Celtics following the trade deadline:

  • Celtics president Danny Ainge tells ESPNBoston.com's Chris Forsberg that the team was close to several deals in the minutes leading up to the deadline.
  • Ainge also says he was thinking both about the present and the future, as he explored trades that would have helped the Celtics make a playoff run as well as accumulate assets for the future.
  • Ainge says that the Celtics need another big man, and they may explore the buyout market for a solution.
  • In a separate post, Forsberg wonders whether the Celtics would be interested in Chris Johnson, who was waived by the Blazers earlier today and played briefly for Boston last season.
