Danny Ainge: Celtics Not ‘Trying’ to Trade Rondo
Celtics general manager Danny Ainge says he’s not trying to trade point guard Rajon Rondo. But he says he’ll keep listening to calls.
Ainge says teams are assuming that since the Celtics have unloaded coach Doc Rivers and stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett they’re looking to dump everything of value. But he says the team wants to keep Rondo as it tries to rebuild through the draft.
It was rumored over the weekend that the Dallas Mavericks were reportedly interested in the point guard, but nothing came of that. Other teams have shown interest in Rondo in the past, but he remains with Boston for now.
