Celtics rumors: Boston has ‘no intentions’ of trading Rajon Rondo

It was recently reported that the Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics discussed a trade involving point guard Rajon Rondo. While Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told reporters – including Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston – that he always listens to offers, he has “no intentions” of trading Rondo.
"I always listen to calls and listen to what [their] ideas are, but we have no intentions of moving Rajon," Ainge said.
Rondo is still a part of the Celtics’ long-term plans, as most expect Boston to attempt to build around the talented point guard. After entering the NBA as a late first-round draft pick out of Kentucky, Rondo has gone on to average 11.1 points, 8.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game over seven seasons. Prior to suffering his season-ending injury, the 27-year-old was averaging a double-double (13.7 points, 11.1 assists) last year.

At this point, Ainge and the Celtics are hopeful that Rondo will be able to rejoin the team by the start of the regular season. There’s still uncertainty surrounding Rondo’s recovery from ACL surgery, but so far the team is happy with the guard’s rehab.
