Celtics willing to wheel Rondo again

07:04 AM ET 05.14 | Danny Ainge held on to the Big Three longer than some expected, and he also kept what was left it together, too -- which isn't to say the current roster can get comfortable. All parts are in play. And that means that no matter how much the Celtics personnel chief will again insist that he's not looking to trade Rajon Rondo, he will once again be on alert in case a deal makes sense. ... Rondo's surgically repaired knee means Ainge will receive trash offers. It should also be noted that dramatic advances have been made in ACL surgery. The fact that Rondo suffered only a partial tear means he should be ready for the start of training camp. He has more value than players who had similar procedures in the past.

Rondo may pull a Rose and sit out all next year until he "feels comfortable" ... medical clearance to play or not. Wilbon will spend the year defending his decision to leave his teammates high and dry, though, so not all will be lost.

And as long as OH residents are obsessively trolling D Rose it will prove that deep down they know Kyrie will never be the talent Rose is, and they need to get their shots in while they can.

Haters gonna hate, posters gonna post.

Rondo is one of the best (playoff) PG's right now. Why would you get rid of him? How would you shape this team anyways?


Even CP3 can't help you who fails miserably each time in the playoffs.

You assume he won't replace Rondo with another PG?

Westbrook for Rondo?

Right now the Celtics need to get younger and we need desperate help in the paint and 2 guard spot. If we could trade Rondo to say the Bobcats get either Nerlens Noel or Ben McLemore, I would do it. As good as Rondo is, I don't see him carrying the Celts with an ancient Pierce and Garnett and no quality younger players. If Garnett, Jason Terry and our 1st round pick can be had for Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan I would take it. We have to get younger, right now my Celts are running in place.

It's sad when a portion of an article is presented as complete truth. As usual, the facts are more nuanced than what's presented here.
