Boston Celtics president of basketball of operations Danny Ainge isn’t willing to trade Rajon Rondo, but he is willing to move several veteran players. According to the Boston Herald, Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace are available. “We’ve written here before that despite the lack of interest in trading Rondo — unless they get the proverbial offer they can’t refuse — the Celtics are still active in the market. Sources continue to say they’d love to move some veteran contracts (think Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace) to put them in a better position vis-a-vis the salary cap.” Houston Rockets center Omer Asik, who has asked for a trade, has been linked to the Celtics. “I don’t know if they’ll get a good enough package for him,” said one NBA source when asked if the Rockets are willing to deal Asik. “I think teams like him and think he’s a good player, but he is a non-offensive, non-free throw shooting center, and he’s not Dwight Howard. And he has a $15 million balloon payment coming next year.” Humphries is owed $12 million this season while Wallace will make $10.1 million each of the next three seasons. “If you don’t hear of some superstar going back to the Celtics for Rondo, don’t pay any attention to it,” a general manager the Herald. “They don’t want to trade the guy anyway, but when people are throwing names like Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton and Amare Stoudemire (Knicks) out there, you can be sure Rondo’s not involved. “Look, like I said, they don’t want to trade Rondo. Why would they? I’m sure they’d have to listen if there was another major star involved, but it would have to be really big. This other stuff just doesn’t make any sense.” The post Rumor: Celtics looking to trade veteran players appeared first on Sports Glory.

Rondo continues working with Bryan Doo, tries to dunk

Here’s a short vid of Rajon Rondo working with Bryan Doo before the C’s game with the Wolves last night. Minnesota’s CSN affiliate aired the clip, which shows Rajon trying to dunk off of his surgically repaired left leg. Danny Ainge said last week that there is still no timetable for Rondo’s return.

Report: Celtics Would Consider Trading Humphries & Wallace for Amare

If a trade like this would happen, it is essentially swamping bad contracts for bad contracts. Nothing more, nothing less.

Boston Celtics Aren’t Trading Rondo to the Knicks

I’ve been saying it all summer and I’ll continue to say it now.

The value for Rondo […]

Underrated Stat of the Night - Spurs 11/20

Well, this loss was depressing. Tonight, the Celtics, despite putting up a great effort, fell to the Spurs, 104-93. I'm not mad that they didn't win this game, but I must say I found it tough to take. They played very well, so I expected them to come away victorious. But, I guess sometimes the effort's just not enough.Anyway, tonight's USOTN goes to the lack of playing...

Report: Celtics Willing to Take Amar’e Stoudemire

When it was reported earlier yesterday that the Boston Celtics had no reported interest in trading Rajon Rondo to the New York Knicks, it was thought that any type of deal between the two teams would be dead for this season at least.

Recap: Sully shines as C’s show better effort in loss to Spurs

Tonight’s Celtics game started much better than Tuesday’s debacle.  Behind solid 1st quarters from Avery Bradley, Jeff Green & Jared Sullinger, the C’s were up 25-22 after 1Q in San Antonio tonight.
