09:29 AM ET 02.16 | Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak denied a CBSSports.com report that the Lakers and Celtics were in preliminary talks to trade Dwight Howard for Rajon Rondo. "I haven't talked to Danny Ainge in weeks," Kupchak told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard. "I made the statement a week or two ago that we're not going to trade Dwight Howard and that hasn't changed."

Agreed. They see how Broussard made a career out of it and want to seem like insiders also.

Brossard has been pretty good with his predictions but if you listened to him he said Mitch said it wouldnt happen, that was a rumor!!

I think Kobe has final say. What does Kobe think of Rondo, that's the question that needs to be answered. Would Kobe rather have Rondo as his PG than Dwight as his center? Gasol at center??

Where will Nash go? you dont believe that yourself....if that trade happened Creepy will never enter Fannation again....I know you wish it happens now!!!

Nash may graciously accept coming off the bench this late in his career or once Rondo comes back mid season of '14, trade Nash at the '14 trade dead line.

That trade wouldnt make since giveup a big man for small guard that D'Antoni doesnt know how to use...use common sense it doesnt make sense maybe Garnett!!!
