Seemingly all of the rumors revolving around the Boston Celtics surround the future of point guard Rajon Rondo. However, it continues to look like general manager Danny Ainge would like to hang on to the all-star point guard. With Rondo still sidelined with a partially torn ACL, the Celtics could actually lose games while keeping their best player, a scenario that’s very tough to pull off in the NBA.

According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, the Celtics would prefer two trade a couple of another veterans.

We’ve written here before that despite the lack of interest in trading Rondo — unless they get the proverbial offer they can’t refuse — the Celtics are still active in the market. Sources continue to say they’d love to move some veteran contracts (think Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace) to put them in a better position vis-a-vis the salary cap.

“I think that we don’t have much flexibility, as much as we would like,” said Ainge. “I wouldn’t say it’s a priority, but we are having conversations.”

Wallace, 31, is averaging just 5.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game while Humphries, 28, is putting up 4.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
