Rajon Rondo has been rumored to be involved in about trade rumors ever since he got to the NBA. So it's to nobody's surprise that the defensive-minded Rondo may get dealt before the March 15 trade deadline.
Head coach Doc Rivers met with president of basketball operations Danny Ainge before Wednesday's win over Milwaukee, but the Boston Celtics' coach says they never discussed trading point guard Rajon Rondo.
"In all that time we did not talk once about any trades," Rivers said. "There was not one single thing about Rajon Rondo that crossed my desk."
The Celtics have the aging "Big Three" of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, but most teams would be interested in the 26-year old from Kentucky.
Ainge reaffirmed on Thursday during his weekly call to Boston sports radio WEEI that he's not actively trying to trade the point guard.
Boston did use Rondo as trade bait in an attempt to acquire point guard Chris Paul during the preseason, but the All-Star veteran ended up in Los Angeles with the Clippers instead.
