Rajon Rondo Rumors: Thursday

As Rajon Rondo rumors heated up yesterday, the Celtics' point guard went out and put up a triple-double on the Bucks, en route to a 102-96 win. Chris Forsberg of writes that Rondo was happier about the job he did on defense, holding Brandon Jennings to six points on 2-of-11 shooting. While we wait to see if the 26-year-old continues to play at the top of his game amidst trade rumors, let's round up today's Rondo items right here (newest items on top)….

  • A Celtics source reiterated to's David Aldridge that Rondo is not on the trading block, despite the recent surge of interest (link via Twitter).
  • Appearing on WEEI in Boston, GM Danny Ainge said of Rondo, "I've made zero calls to try to trade him, and I won't" (link via ESPN Boston).
  • Celtics coach Doc Rivers told Jackie MacMullan of ESPN Boston he's tired of hearing reports suggesting he and Rondo don't get along, or reports that the Celtics are shopping Rondo: "My relationship with Rajon is as strong as it has ever been. Our communication has never been better. I want him here. I can say with almost 100% certainty he will be here with us when the season ends."
  • Within MacMullan's piece, two GMs who were involved (as potential third teams) in trade talks involving Rondo and Chris Paul in the offseason confirmed they haven't received calls regarding Rondo since then.
  • Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are drawing more trade interest than Rondo, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of
  • Asked about Rondo's future, Ainge said, "I anticipate him being here for a long time," according to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald. Ainge added that he isn't actively shopping Rondo, who Ainge says is getting along "better than ever" with Rivers.
  • Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe hears from a source that the Celtics are just listening to offers on Rondo, rather than actively trying to dump him.'s Chris Broussard reported yesterday that the Celtics were aggressively shopping Rondo, which echoed an earlier report that suggested Boston was initiating talks involving its point guard. Either way, it's clear the Celtics are at least talking about Rondo with teams.
  • Appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, Sam Smith of said he thinks GM Danny Ainge will try to make a "big splash" by dealing Rondo, adding that the point guard and Rivers don't get along well (hat tip to Broussard expressed a similar sentiment on SportsCenter (via "[Rondo] has trouble taking constructive criticism and he does clash a lot with Doc Rivers. They know he's a great player. They're not going to just give him away. But they feel like they probably can't rebuild around him because of the problems they do have with clashing with his personality."

    rondo for curry and kwame
    jermaine oneal for beasley
    cap space for a big fa and 2 1st round picks. the future would def look brighter.

      Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t brown done for the season? Can he even be traded. And the wolves would want a 1st round pick for Beasley not just oneal.

      • JackParkman

        I have no idea if Brown is injured (not a warriors fan) I was just using him to make the contracts match up. As for the beasley trade, I was just stating a rumor that has been written about on this site. As a Celts fan, I dont know why the TWolves would consider that trade.

      If Rondo is really causing problems, they should move him. I’m not 100% sold he is though. As for Beasley… If they can really land him for just Jermaine O’Neal they have to. They can let him walk if they don’t see him fitting in long term. They don’t have to match an offer sheet this offseason.

  2. I would think the Bulls could use one of Pierce or Allen if they’re looking to upgrade the 2 spot, or just to add 3 point shooters.

    • jwsox

      Allan makes the most sense both from a position stand point and an economic stand point. The bulls need a shooting guard. Pierce isn’t. Allan for korver and a 1 first round pick might get it done. Now I do think the bulls could go after another small forward and slide deng over to shooting guard. He is good enough with his defense and has great length and size to over match shooting guards. His length makes up for his lack of speed compared to some of the faster sg’s in the game. But pierce is way to expensive for the bulls. Beasley could be had for one draft pick and has extreme potential could fit well with the bulls. Thibs could crack him and playing with rose could be good for him.

      • dc21892

        If the Bulls could add a good SF and slide Deng to the SG position, they would be almost unstoppable. Size is one thing that most teams cannot defend.

        • jwsox

          I agree could you
          Imagine a shooting guard going up against deng. He would have a 3-4 inch height advantage and he is one of the better defenders in the league he could easily do it. Which is why I think they should go after Beasley.

  3. JackParkman

    Paul Pierce to the TBlazers would be a nice trade. Blazers got Batum they could dangle. Celts would prob have to take Wallace back to make contracts match up. Thoughts?

    • IndyNate

      Batum and Gerald Wallace for Pierce?! If I’m Boston, I do that deal! But they won’t bc of what he’s done in their green uniforms.
