07:10 AM ET 08.26 | Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has gone on the record stating that Rajon Rondo wants to return by training camp and play on opening night. Yet while speaking with WSYX Columbus on Friday, teammate Jared Sullinger shared a different timetable for Boston's four-time All-Star. "He's back working out again and hopefully he'll be back by December," said Sullinger. Obviously we don't know how much Sullinger knows, but he has hopefully (if you're a Celtics fan looking for locker room camaraderie) stayed in contact with his longest-tenured teammate. Rondo has bounced around during rehab, working out at the University of Louisville's athletic facilities and in Florida with Dr. James Andrews, the famous surgeon who performed his surgery.

Boston wants him rolling by mid Jan, so they can get a better package for him at the deadline.

AND suck enough to be a good contender for the lottery.

Asik and Lin for Rondo + PF. Rockets need proven PG and third star to contend. Let Linsanity rekindle in Boston, Harvard man returns to RUN the Celtics while they rebuild with a good young center, Sullinger, Jeff Green on the wing, Avery Bradley for excitement.

Never going to happen. Boston would be crazy to even consider such a deal.
