Found May 16, 2014 on Larry Brown Sports:
PLAYERS: Rajon Rondo
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The rumors that Rajon Rondo is available in a trade or that the Boston Celtics are looking to deal him have been floating around for years, yet the point guard has remained a Celtic his entire career. Might that finally change? It sounds like a possibility if you believe the Boston Herald. The Herald’s Steve […]

Danny Ainge on latest Rondo trade rumors: Just speculation

Danny Ainge analyzed the Boston Celtics' status with Rajon Rondo and said the report that the New York Knicks turned down a trade for Rondo last summer is “maybe the most ludicrous thing I’ve ever heard.” Ainge again dismissed talk of Rondo's availability. "That’s all speculation,” Ainge said. “Those aren’t facts. People don’t know that, so it’s just...

Rajon Rondo's future with Celtics

While the Celtics are here at the NBA draft combine primarily to identify people they might like to add to their team, it’s fair to assume they’ll also be examining which present players will stay and go. We’ve been told that Washington isn’t presently interested in Jeff Green at his numbers ($9.2 million next year and a player option for the same in 2015-16), and that a...

Danny Ainge: ‘We love Rondo, and Rondo loves us’

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge says people are just speculating that point guard Rajon Rondo is on the trade block. “That’s all speculation,” Ainge said, per the Boston Herald. “Those aren’t facts. People don’t know that, so it’s just people speculating on Rondo’s free agency next summer. That’s all that you’re hearing. You’re...

Brad Stevens saying the company line about Rondo rumors

No knock on Stevens, but his answer is pretty much scripted by the Celtics suits. I like the line "He's still around a lot". Like that means something, and that Danny needs a pat on the back or something for that. Anyways, it's great that Rondo is working regardless of the rumors, again and again.CSNNEStevens provided the standard answer that the Celtics have issued...

Danny Ainge likes Marcus Smart's "fire"

Marcus Smart is going to be a great player in the NBA. Whether or not he'll start his career in Boston is up to Celtics GM Danny Ainge and the lottery gods.I've already gone over why I think Smart would be a spectacular pick for Boston here and here's his combine interview but for a quick recap: -Bulldog mentality-Strong as hell-Can score inside against anyone a la Russell...

If the Celtics draft Dante Exum, what does that mean for Rondo?

Exum is expected to be a top-10 pick, and maybe a among the top five selections in this years draft. What does that mean for Rondo? Exum is a 6'6" point guard, and looks like a new age point guard. Some believe you draft the best possible player that's still there for you to draft, and some think you draft with some of your team needs in mind. I don't ideally want...

Rondo's future in Boston still unclear, after Danny Ainge seems intrigued with point guards in this years draft

The Rajon Rondo rumor button has been pressed, and maybe ESPN's Stephen A. Smith has more insight than we think. I admit, I think a lot of what he does is over the top, and that's why he's on TV. He's also been wrong in the past on many odd ball rumors. When it comes to reliable rumors. The man, the myth, the legend that is Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski, is one...

Danny Ainge Shoots Down Stephen A. Smith’s Rajon Rondo Trade Report

Danny Ainge dispelled a Stephen A. Smith report concerning Rajon Rondo in the most fitting way possible — by using the type of word Smith would use on ESPN First Take to describe the same rumor, had it been reported by somebody else. “Ludicrous” was how Ainge described an report that the New York Knicks had “snubbed” a trade to acquire Rondo from the Boston Celtics...

Brad Stevens Not Expecting Drastic Changes To Celtics Coaching Staff

Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics made their first change of the offseason when they hired former Golden State Warriors assistant Darren Erman to head their NBA scouting department. But Stevens does not anticipate Erman’s addition to be the first move in a major shakeup on the bench and in the front office. Speaking with reporters in Chicago, where he was evaluating prospects...

NBA draft combine gets underway, Celtics said to be high on Dante Exum

The NBA draft combine began in Chicago this morning, here are some of the highlights so far:Brad Stevens, @waltermccarty and Danny Ainge are all in attendance at today's @NBADraft Combine workouts. #Celtics— Emily Austen (@emilyausten_) May 15, 2014A lot of the early talk surrounding the Celtics involves point guards:Dante Exum measured a full 6-6...

Draft combine interviews with Dante Exum, Aaron Gordon, Noah Vonleh and Doug McDermott

Every clip can be found on the Celtics official youtube channel, meaning somebody in the organization thinks each of these players could wind up in Boston:Dante Exum We've talked a lot about Exum in recent days. It seems like the Celtics should do better than him if they win the lottery and move up into the top 3 (Andre Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid; although Embiid'...

Ainge has an idea of where players stand in draft, waiting on lottery drawing

Where the Celtics land in this years draft could take Ainge into many directions. I believe if Ainge doesn't get one or two, that he may look at 2007 all over again. Ainge could also decide to go another way, unlike the 2007 model. Instead of keeping Rondo like he did Pierce in 2007. Danny could just finally end all ties from the 2008 championship team. Danny is right about where...

Has Pressure Broken Doc Rivers?

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers has always been a class act during his NBA playing and coaching careers.  He is very well-respected as a man and for the way he carries himself. But after the way he lost his mind in the waning moments of Game 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder and then in the post game press conference when he repeatedly pounded on the interview table, you...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are really big on Dante Exum

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The #Celtics are “really big” on Exum, a league source said. #Celticstalk — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) May 14, 2014 Sherrod Blakely has the Celtics taking the 6-6 combo guard from Australia with the...
