Celtics Would Consider Dealing Rajon Rondo

Rajon+Rondo+Miami+Heat+v+Boston+Celtics+

The Celtics are not actively shopping Rajon Rondo, but the team is open to trading him in the right deal, according to sources.

Boston believes they need more scoring to assist Paul Pierce.

lol idiots, seriously. They have like 35 million free space in 2012. Why not try to grab Dwight Howard for example? Rondo would feed him all day long.

and a scoring assistant to Pierce? Pierce should help himself out :laughing:

Boston... This is why you're only winning championships once every 20 years now. He is by far the most important part to that team, and is your franchise's FUTURE. The 'Big 3' are all getting very close to hangin' things up... Keep Rondo and shop one of the big 3. Start looking for a big man now because Rondo + legit big man = unstoppable.

Pacers Exploring Trade For Rajon Rondo

Posted Image

As Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge aggressively pursues possible deals for Rajon Rondo(notes), the Indiana Pacers have emerged as an intriguing suitor for the point guard, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

For the past few days, Pacers officials – and third-party surrogates – have been making calls and gathering information and insight into Rondo’s reputation as a teammate and leader, sources said.

The Pacers and Celtics have discussed the preliminary framework of a deal, but two sources said Indiana would need a third team to provide Boston with the talent it wants to do a deal. The Celtics are likely trying to gather the necessary pieces to make a bid for Ainge’s ultimate target: New Orleans point guard Chris Paul(notes), sources said.

It was unclear if the Pacers had begun to reach out to broaden discussions, but there was an expectation they would do so.

The Celtics have been gauging Rondo’s trade value for more than a year, and have held discussions with teams about him across the past few trade deadlines and NBA drafts. There have long been divides within Boston’s front office, coaching staff and locker room about Rondo. He can be moody, difficult and stubborn, and several league sources were dubious if the Pacers’ young coach, Frank Vogel, would have the stature to deal with Rondo.

Boston could be trying to gather players to make a more attractive bid for Paul, sources said. New Orleans has shown no interest in a deal that would include Rondo and any combination of Celtics teammates. Yet, New Orleans GM Dell Demps is determined to get maximum value for Paul, if it’s clear the point guard sees his future elsewhere. Demps has no desire to simply let Paul walk away as a free agent to New York.

Most teams in the league are engaging New Orleans about Paul, whose intentions are to get to the New York Knicks as a free agent in the summer of 2012. Paul does have some history in Oklahoma City, having played there with the Hornets in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, but the Thunder have resisted dialogue on a Paul-for-Russell Westbrook deal, sources said.

The Thunder are prepared to make Westbrook a substantial contract offer – probably a maximum deal – in the near future.

Not sure if the Pacers are going to give up Granger for a player coming off a knee injury.

Danny Ainge Denies Shopping Rajon Rondo

Posted Image

By Kirk Minihane
01.06.12 at 8:27 am ET

In his weekly interview with WEEI's The Big Show, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge discussed the surprising start to Greg Stiemsma's career, the maturation process of Rajon Rondo and a possible debut date for Mickael Pietrus.

Stiemsma, a 26-year-old former Defensive Player of the Year in the D-League for Sioux Falls Skyforce, has emerged as a legitimate NBA center early in his career. Ainge was asked about Stiemsma's performance.

"He's played very well from the first day of training camp," said Ainge of Stiemsma, who is averaging 4.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in his first five NBA games. "He's been a positive influence on our team, our coaches have really liked him, he earned their respect right away. He's been good."

Ainge was asked if he was ever concerned that Rondo would be at all affected by the rumors that had the point guard potentially being swapped for Chris Paul.

"I sat down with Rondo when he got back into town, when the lockout ended, and I just told him the truth of what was going on. And that was it," Ainge said. "I've had conversations since, told him exactly what was happening. … I was not trying to trade Rajon Rondo. There's a big difference between trying to acquire a player and trying to trade a player. Rondo knows what I was trying to do, and he knows I wasn't shopping him around and trying to trade him, as has been reported. There's a big difference."

As for Rondo's early-season performance (15.3 points per game, league-best 10.7 assists per game), Ainge credits the point guard's work ethic during the lockout.

"I think that that he was very motivated, we had received reports all summer how hard he was working this offseason," said Ainge. "He showed up in great shape and he came out of the gates playing fantastic basketball for us, and he had a great training camp and he has the right mindset when he goes out on the court."

Ainge also told Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley that Mickael Pietrus (knee surgery) could debut for the Celtics next Wednesday vs. the Mavericks at the Garden.

Source: Celtics Aren't Shopping Rajon Rondo

by Gary Washburn Globe Staff March 1, 2012 04:50 PM

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge would not comment publicly on the report that the Celtics are actively shopping Rajon Rondo, who turned in his 16th career triple-double last night in the Celtics' 102-96 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"I do not make comments on trade rumors because it never ends," he told the Globe this afternoon. "Rondo's been our best player."

During a December press conference before training camp, Ainge admitted that he offered Rondo in a potential deal for Chris Paul. But an NBA source said that Rondo is not being dangled out there for any deal but the Celtics will listen to offers if it will improve the team.

Rondo is a three-time all-star and perhaps one of the most versatile point guards in the game.

"Rajon has been spectacular at times this year," Ainge said.

Mavericks Interested In Rajon Rondo Trade

Mavs would love having Rajon Rondo to chase Dwight Howard, but Boston needs Dallas to take multiple contracts off its books, sources say.

As http://Dallasbasketball.com  says, Celts/Mavs talked some Rondo. Celtics like Larkin, but how do Mavs take contracts and keep space for Howard?

Danny Ainge: Celtics Have 'No Intentions Of Moving' Rajon Rondo

Rajon+Rondo+Detroit+Pistons+v+Boston+Cel

By Chris Forsberg | ESPNBoston.com

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics plan to continue the summer cleaning of their roster, and president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he welcomes all calls about his team's talent but stressed again Monday that they do not currently plan to move All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo as part of the rebuilding process.

After the Celtics agreed to a draft-night blockbuster that will send veterans Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets later this month when the deal is able to be consummated, some wondered whether Rondo -- the final member of the team's 2008 title squad -- might be the next one sent packing.

Ainge echoed his draft-night sentiments that the Celtics view Rondo as a potential building block as they try to get back to contender status.

"The calls are coming in, the calls have not been going out," Ainge said. "I think that the assumption is that, [given] what we are trying to accomplish, the reports are such that maybe the assumption is that we'll give away any of our players. We have had calls. On Jeff [Green], on Courtney [Lee], on Brandon [Bass], on Rondo, on Jared [Sullinger] and our draft pick, Kelly [Olynyk]. There's been calls for all those guys. And maybe the assumption is we are just changing everybody, but we're not. We're starting to get younger."

Ainge admitted that Boston's main objective this summer is to get its salary structure in order, and the team will continue to explore the trade avenues while seeking to give itself more cap flexibility in future seasons. That is likely to put players such as Bass and Lee in the spotlight because of the money committed to them over multiple seasons (and the same with Gerald Wallace upon his arrival in the Nets deal).

But the Celtics are not seeking additional help at the moment through free agency, which Ainge said "is not a priority for us." Just the opposite, with the Celtics set to bring back a large collection of players from the Nets, Ainge admitted his team actually needs to shed bodies, which started Sunday when the team cut Terrence Williams and his non-guaranteed contract in what Ainge termed "a numbers game."

Added Ainge: "As a matter of fact, we have too many players. We have logjams at power forward, and center and shooting guard. We have a lot of guys, potentially, if things continue as they are. I think that our job is to try to clean that up through the summer."

Carmelo Recruiting Rajon Rondo To Knicks

Rondo_Rajon_bos_111123.jpg

Rajon Rondo is getting closer to returning from a torn ACL and his future with the Boston Celtics remains uncertain.

Rondo has long been mentioned in trade rumors and is eligible for free agency in 2015.

"Whether he stays in Boston or not who knows," said Rondo's high school coach, Steve Smith of Oak Hill Academy. "I know, talking to Melo (Carmelo Anthony), he's recruiting Rajon to come to New York. Melo thinks he'll come too. You never know about that stuff though. I think either way, Rajon will be fine."

Rajon Rondo Denies Report Of Being Recruited By Carmelo

Rajon+Rondo+Chicago+Bulls+v+Boston+Celti

By Baxter Holmes / Globe Staff/ December 10, 2013

Rajon Rondo dismissed comments from his former high school coach, Steve Smith of Oak Hill, that he's being recruited by Carmelo Anthony to join the New York Knicks.

“People talk, media talk, people make up rumors, people run with them,” said Rondo.

“I haven’t spoken to him. He ain’t contacted me. It’s just rumors.”

Rondo is eligible for free agency in 2015.

Knicks Hope Rajon Rondo Forces Trade

Rajon+Rondo+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Boston+Celti

The New York Knicks are interested in acquiring Rajon Rondo from the Boston Celtics.

The Knicks hope that Rondo will eventually try to force a trade to the Knicks in a way that was similar to Carmelo Anthony in 2011, according to sources.

The Celtics have consistently denied wanting to trade Rondo, but he will have just one guaranteed season remaining on his contract after the deadline.

The Knicks fully expect to re-sign Anthony in the offseason and at the very least have enough cap space in 2015 to sign a max player.

"They're one confident bunch," a league executive said this week. "To listen to them, they expect to have Carmelo re-signed and have another star with him in another year. They're so sure about it you'd think they already know what will happen."
