Found February 20, 2013 on Turn On The Knicks:
Rondo
Every Wednesday at Turn On The Knicks our staff will debate an issue of the week surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, along with follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree Who is a bigger threat to catch the Knicks in the Atlantic Division, the Brooklyn Nets or Boston Celtics?  Joe Caporoso - Disregarding Brooklyn being 2 games back of the Knicks, while Boston is now 5.5 games back after a loss in Denver last night, the Nets still remain a bigger threat to snatch away the Atlantic Division title. The line of thinking that Boston is better off without Rajon Rondo is going to crumble as the difficulty of their schedule increases and they struggle to beat elite teams. They will still get into the playoffs in the watered down Eastern Conference and will be a dangerous match-up but in terms of sustainable success over the next 30 games, Brooklyn is a better candidate for it. The Nets have won three straight a...

Celtics Rumors: Rajon Rondo available

Despite the injury, the Boston Celtics have made Rajon Rondo available for trade.  However, a deal is unlikely.  If the team were to get anything done, it would probably have to be after the season.  Right now, Rondo is rehabbing from a torn ACL. According to ESPN Boston, if the Celtics received an offer for Rondo, they would not immediately turn it down.  It's not beyond...

Ainge says he's not shopping Rajon Rondo, Broussard says he is

Some he said/she said stuff with less than two days to go before the trade deadline. Here's Danny Ainge: I’m not trading Rajon Rondo away for discounted dollars because he’s hurt. We collectively as an organization have decided not to do that. And now Chris Broussard: Sources say Boston willing to trade injured PG Rajon Rondo in right deal. For one reason or another a lot...

ACL, a critical loss for many sports teams

For those that aren’t familiar with was ACL actually stands for, a quick Google search will not only get you the answer but you will also find out how often a tear of this ligament occurs in major sports. Seemingly every day, a new athlete in a major sport goes down to the dreaded ACL tear. In just that past few months many famous athletes are either coming off an ACL tear (Adrian...

Report: Celtics Willing to Trade Injured Rajon Rondo If They Can Find ‘Right Trade’

Rajon Rondo is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, but apparently that won’t stop the Celtics from moving their point guard — if they can somehow find a deal they like. That probably won’t be easy, but ESPN’s Chris Broussard reports (via Twitter) that the Celtics would trade their injured point guard if they were able to find the “right trade.” What exactly...

Boston Celtics willing to trade Rajon Rondo if the deal is good enough

No one is untouchable on the Boston Celtics ... even Rajon Rondo. The Celtics star point guard, who is recovering from season-ending ACL surgery, is available if the price is right, ESPN's Chris Broussard reported. This makes sense if Boston is serious about acquiring Los Angeles Clippers point guard Eric Bledsoe, who has been discussed as the potential centerpiece of a deal...

Report: C’s want the world in a Rondo trade

There isn’t a single Celtic that hasn’t been mentioned in some trade rumor somewhere.  Yesterday, Chris Broussard threw an “update” out there that Danny would move Rondo in the “right deal.” Anyone that knows this team, even a little bit, knows Danny Ainge will listen to any offer and move on something that he feels makes sense for the team.  Apparently, what makes...

Rondo's agent assured Rondo will not be traded

Agent for Rajon Rondo, Bill Duffy, tells USAT that Boston GM Danny Ainge assured him today the Celtics PG won't be traded. Story to come. — Sam Amick (@sam_amick) February 20, 2013 Another update in a crazy time before the trade deadline, this new information seems to be pretty plausible. Rondo is currently out with a season-ending injury, so his value would not be very high...

Rondo Assured By Celtics He Won't Be Dealt

Rajon Rondo has been linked to a possible trade in several reports.

Ainge is pissed at opposing GM's with loose lips

Boston Herald: But the Celtics leader was upset that the allegedly private conversations had been revealed. “Hogwash,” was his initial response. “You know what? I don’t comment on any trade rumors at all. It doesn’t do me any good to make any comments at all.” Reminded that each report had come in perspective, with the Celts asking more than a Rondo’s ransom, Ainge...

Afternoon Delight: Immediate Opening

The trade deadline netted Jordan Crawford for the C's - who should add depth to the 1 and 2 voids created by the injuries to Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa (now with the Wiz).  But many feel the Celts came up short at the deadline in trying to plug their hole(s) at the 5 - and most certainly adding a "big" would now be Boston's primary goal. The expected route...

Report: Celtics Sign Former Lottery Pick, Louisville Star Terrence Williams

Terrence Williams, a former lottery pick and standout player at Louisville, is back in the NBA. Multiple reports stated Monday that the Celtics signed Williams to add depth to their bench, which has been decimated by injuries. Williams gives the Celtics 11 healthy players, rounding out a roster that was in a precarious position after the season-ending injuries to Rajon Rondo, Jared...

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Turning Back the Clock to Keep Celtics Contending Without Rajon Rondo

Kevin Garnett didn’t exactly make the dramatic All-Star game exit many Celtics fans had been hoping for when he cryptically leaked last week that this would be his last appearance in the event. He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans. The big man does, after all, have a surging...

Jeff Green Helps Celtics Work Past Injuries to Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger, Leandro Barbosa

The Boston Celtics have thrived amid adversity this season, relying on the one-two punch of veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to beat the prevailing NBA odds and prove that their window of opportunity for another championship hasn’t closed just yet. But they haven’t been doing it alone — 26-year-old Jeff Green has been a big part of their success lately. While season-ending...

Celtics fall to Nuggets 97-90, as the season's second half tips off

T-40 hours until the NBA's trade deadline, and in case you haven't noticed - there are a few Celtics related rumors floating around. And by a few, I mean a million (CelticsLife has all the latest trade buzz for you right here). However, the games do not end while GM's across the league ponder their team's future, and for the Celtics, their Rondo-less journey continued...

Oh, hi universe. What is with all the pranks?

Or is it you, Lucky? Hi. What's up? Excited about the trade rumors and anxious to know what will happen to the Celtics? Yeah, me too. I have some bad news, though. The universe has a big prank planned for us. This whole season has been marked by the universe's decision to become the ultimate prankster on Celtics fans, and I don't know when and in what shape the final...
