Earlier today it was reported that the Boston Celtics plan to keep Rajon Rondo and use his name/game to rebuild the franchise.

But with just a few hours until the clock strikes on the NBA’s trade deadline, the Celtics wouldn’t be doing their job if they didn’t at least listen to any incoming proposals.

And while listen they might, it doesn’t appear as if there will be any serious discussions taking place barring a last minute phone call as Sam Amick of USA Today Sports says there is nothing in the works regarding a Rondo trade.

According to a person with knowledge of the Celtics’ dealings, there is nothing remotely substantive in play at the moment when it comes to trading Rondo.

There are two sides to a potential Rondo trade – those that think the team should use him as an asset to rebuild the franchise quickly or those who feel the team should keep him and build around his talent.

Neither is really a wrong answer – just a difference in philosophy as both should work assuming general manager Danny Ainge does his job properly.
