Although the NBA’s trade deadline is still a week away, it seems like we might have some understanding as to what the Boston Celtics are doing come one of the most vital days of the NBA season.
Hearing the Celtics are not likely to trade Jeff Green, with the mindset they want to build around him, Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger.
While both Sullinger and Jeff Green are solid players, they simply are the type of talents you build around. It’s questionable if Rondo is even that guy, but he’s much more idealistic in that role than Sullinger.
It could be a matter of general manager Danny Ainge overvaluing his players, but that’s not exactly a fearsome trio – even at their peak.
Regardless, if the Celtics are content building around those players, none of them will be moved in the coming days.
