The Boston Celtics are on the receiving end of a lot of calls from teams trying to pry Rondo out of Boston. The problem is not whether Boston would do a Rondo deal; most teams believe Boston would.

The asking price for Rondo is said to be two unprotected first round draft picks and some combination of ending contracts and rookie scale players.
