Ainge: Rondo’s Not Being Traded

Rajon Rondo has been a constant subject of constant trade rumors this season. His chilly attitude and enigmatic play have reportedly been the reason Boston has entertained offers, but every player has strengths and weaknesses, and Rondo's court vision, hyperactivity, and contract are all positives that outweigh the negatives.

The rumors are surprising because having a young All-Star, All-Defensive team point guard under contract is one of the most valued commodities in the NBA today, and moving him to rebuild around other pieces seems like it'd just delay the renovation.

Before tonight's game against the Clippers, Boston general manager Danny Ainge placed a cork in the faucet currently spewing trade rumors about his team's best player, telling CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely that the star point guard will stay put. "I don't know how many times I have to say it. Rondo's not being traded," he said. 

Unless blown away by a deal that brings back immediate, young talent and draft pick(s), it looks like Boston will make a run with what they have without moving any of their core pieces before the trade deadline.

The best course of action always seemed to let Garnett, O’Neal, and Allen expire and try to rebuild around Rondo and Green with Pierce as a bridge. Of course, if you can get picks or young talent for Allen or Garnett or something with a heartbeat for O’Neal’s expiring deal, then you listen.

Anthony Davis or Terrence Jones would go a long way in the rebuilding process. As would Sullinger.

Sullinger’s D is so bad, I’m not sure the C’s would like that… and no way they can move up all the way to Davis. Or Sullinger, for that matter. Jones is a possibility, I think.

Good idea not to trade Rondo. Lets work on getting Danny Ainge Fired or Traded for a better General Manager. He is all washed up and doesn’t know his head from his ass. I know Doc would agree.

Time to trade Ray Allen. The boy can’t make a bucket any longer.

Rondo shouldn’t be traded. My friend told me that he had a three year contract with the celtics.
