12:03 PM ET 02.11 | The Boston Celtics were one of the first teams to be involved in the trade rumor frenzy when they got mixed up in Omer Asik trade rumors with the Houston Rockets. Nothing ever came from those rumors but the Celtics have been mentioned in a slew of trade rumors since then with most including either Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green. With the playoffs likely out of reach this season, the Celtics are looking to build for the future but want to do so fast. This is why it's no surprise that Sam Amico from FOX Sports reports Danny Ainge and the Celtics would like to not trade Rondo or Green and instead build around the two, as well as big man Jared Sullinger.

I like the plan. Keep those three, try to get something for Bradley, Bass, etc.....and then build through the draft.

Not bad but will that cost them too much money in the future? They can go the Seahawks style of building a team but it's not the same in the NBA.
