It's been reported that Celtics Gm Danny Ainge has made it clear to Rondo's agent that he's not being moved by the trade deadline.
Sam Amick @sam_amick Agent for Rajon Rondo, Bill Duffy, tells USAT that Boston GM Danny Ainge assured him today the Celtics PG won't be traded. Story to come.
Ken Berger @KBergCBS I'm told the "right deal" for Rondo would be: Dwight Howard, Chris Paul or a massive haul of assets like Denver got for Melo. Not happening.
Danny is off the hook on this one, because nobody would trade for Rondo at this point. Just not happening. I think Rondo will have to deal with Rumors for his entitre tenure in Boston. Because of the history surrounding Ainge.
In other rumors.
"In pursuit of guard help, the Celtics have made rookie center Fab Melo available in trade offers, league sources tell Y! Sports.
In offering Melo, Boston’s trying to preserve control of future picks and its current rotation to fortify for this season."
"To get Boston’s Avery Bradley, the Wolves would have to sacrifice Derrick Williams and a future first-round pick, according to a league source. That’s not happening.
Another name to keep an eye on are Boston’s Courtney Lee, whom Adelman likes, according to a team source. Lee played for Adelman in Houston.
But another team source said the Wolves were not inclined to offer a four-year deal, which Boston eventually did, when they talked with Lee’s representative last summer. In other words, the contract could bother the Wolves."
The Celtics are active, in some form. Do know what yet.
