A lot of people assume that the Celtics will trade Rondo. The main reason? I think they believe that Rondo is incapable of leading a team. Nobody believes Ainge, and that's apart of the persona of it all. Until the Celtics start winning under Rondo, he'll remain in trade talks. I just hope that Ainge keeps an open dialogue with Rondo about the rumors that lay ahead.
"We're not looking to trade Rondo," president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told Bill Simmons on the BS Report last week. "We think Rondo's a big part of our future." Of course, Ainge also admitted the Celtics were close to trading Rondo to the New Orleans Hornets for Chris Paul, so we know he's not afraid to make a move if he feels like it will bring back an elite piece. As a result, and with Boston now in rebuilding mode, expect to hear plenty of rumors once Rondo returns from surgery to repair the ACL he partially ruptured last January.
