The Herald’s Steve Bulpett has the update:
“I haven’t talked to any teams about Rajon Rondo,” Celts’ president of basketball operation Danny Ainge told the Herald this morning.
He has, however, fielded a number of calls wanting to now if the rumors are true.
“It’s frustrating,” Ainge said.
There it is… flat out.
Expect the rumors and reports to persist, though, because buzzards will always try to pick every bone dry, and the Celtics do have some attractive pieces. Everything I’ve seen, read, and heard over the past few months indicate the Celtics are not moving Rondo. I know that always comes with the caveat “unless they get an offer they can’t refuse,” but those offers aren’t out there, and especially not from New York.
