As previously reported, the Rajon Rondo trade rumors are going nowhere.
According to Jay King at Masslive.com, the Pistons have asked about Rondo's availability.
The Pistons are said to have plenty of interest in acquiring Rondo, and Dumars admitted he spoke to Boston about its All-Star point guard's availability. But according to the Detroit Free Press, talks never progressed far enough to include specific players.
"Never happened, never even a conversation about Brandon," Dumars said, referring to a recent Boston Globe report that Detroit wants to swap Knight and an expiring contract for Rondo. "That trade rumor is not true."
Of course Dumars didn't mention anything about packing either of Detroit's two big men Greg Monroe or Andre Drummond, but reports are Drummond is as close as untouchable as a player gets in the NBA.
Bottom line is if a trade between Detroit and Boston for Rondo did happen, it's not going to happen before the season ...
