The Boston Celtics have been looking at ways to improve their roster for some time now and while they stayed relatively quiet on the trade front this season, the summer could bring about some big changes. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has noted that while he’s not giving players away, that doesn’t mean big names won’t be on the move if the price is right.
According to WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach, the Celtics have noted that no one is off limits when it comes to potential offseason trades.
The ‘no one’ in that scenario is Rajon Rondo and everyone knows that.
This hardly means Rajon Rondo will be traded, but it also isn’t a glowing endorsement of his safety on the roster. There’s been hope all season long that Rondo will work something out contractually with the Celtics and remain in Boston long term, but every time his contract is brought up, it’s followed by trade rumors.
That hasn’t changed since them middle of the season and as we approach the draft in June, the trade talks surrounding Rondo won’t be going anywhere.
