Rival Execs: Celtics Not Looking to Trade Rondo

These are the questions that may come to define the Celtics’ season, or at least the period between now and the Feb. 20 trade deadline. Rival executives say that (Celtics GM Danny) Ainge has been firm in his stance that (Rajon) Rondo will not be dealt. But many of those same executives believe that Ainge has to trade Rondo, to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.

“They’re definitely bravely saying they won’t trade him at this point,” said one general manager, who nevertheless added, “I definitely think it’s the right thing to trade him. I think Danny knows it.”

Rondo’s representatives are said to be pursuing a max contract—five years and an estimated $106 million if he stays in Boston, four years and about $79 million if he signs elsewhere. His resume justifies the demand. Rondo has been one of the NBA’s top point guards for the last seven years, and one of the few who can dominate a game with his passing alone.
