Boston Celtics GM talks about Rajon Rondo trade

Published Add your comment

With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching one player who has been the source of a lot of explanation is Rajon Rondo. 

The Boston Celtics' point guard has been linked with switches to New York Knicks, LA Lakers and more recently - and intensely - with the Houston Rockets. 

But now Celtics' GM Danny Ainge has come out to put an end to any speculation in the run up to the trade deadline. When asked about any possible trades for Rondo, Ainge told The Sports Hub;

"There's nothing like that going on," Ainge said. "I've said before there was one time in eight years that there was something that I would say was a very real possibility and it didn't happen.

The same thing happened with Paul Pierce there was one time. If it would have happened, how would that have changed our franchise? We're sort of glad that it didn't happen. I remember Red [Auerbach] used to always say, 'Sometimes the best deals that you make are the ones you don't make.' So listen, we're listening to offers about everybody.

That's my job, to know the value around the league of every one of our players. But I think everybody knows what we've talked enough about Rondo and what we think about him."

So it seems that we can finally put all the Rondo stories to bed for now. He was available at a price, but it seems that no-one even dared to put up the kind of assets that it would have taken to wrestle the point guard away from TD Bank Garden. 

Maybe next year eh.
