Who'd want to trade for this nerd anyway?
"The biggest thing players want is clarity," [Bill] Duffy said. "Like, 'if you're going to trade me, tell me.' Players don't like to feel they're being manipulated or behind-the-scenes not really knowing what's going on. That comes down to respect, more than anything else."

Ainge recently denied rumors that he was shopping Rondo, specifically in an effort to land Chris Paul in Boston.

Obviously the word of the rumors must have found their way to Rondo and it's hard to imagine him being content with them.

"Rondo knows that we love him," said Ainge yesterday. "Trade rumors are part of the world we live in. Everybody's been in trade rumors and everybody will. If you're worth your salt you'll be mentioned in a trade somewhere down the line."

Due to the lockout, players and front office officials still can't speak directly, so Ainge has not been able to tell Rondo this himself, A.Sherrod Blakely writes in the article.

Blakely quotes Duffy saying, "Rajon is here, he wants to be here and from what I can gather, they want him here,".

    I wouldn't blame Rondo for being upset with Ainge. Other star players are treated with much more respect. Maybe Danny is bitter bc the Celtics traded him 20 yrs ago. What Ainge should be doing is saying that rondo is untouchable and then maybe rondo could recruit some players like Dwight or josh smith to come to Boston.

    Ps. If you're going to trade your best player's best friend at least get something better than Jeff Green.
    Pps I wouldn't mind Rondo as our GM and Ainge traded to New Orleans

    We need Westbrook & Perkins hell Rondo,J.Green, & G.Davis can go to OKC unless the C`s wanna lose again especially against Miami & Chicago. Westbrook can average 25points & 9 dimes a game U can`t beat that. Rondo just a playmaker who can just pass and drive. Ray & Paul can`t average 20 to 25 points no more because their old plus KG been pulling injuries lately come on Celtics fans we need Westbrook & Perkins in Boston. If Rondo stay in Boston we want win another title even with T.Chandler because we don`t have a scoring PG & Westbrook is the one unlike CP3 he can score on anybody and can take LeBron James 1on1 like Jason Terry did. We can use Tyson Chandler,Marcus Thornton, & James Jones also off the bench because role players help U win titles look at Dallas they beat Miami because of shooters & coaching. Westbrook and D-Rose would be runner up for MVP unlike Lebron because their athletic Rondo`s not Westbrook in Boston we can win back2back titles but y`all want Rondo a guard who can`t shoot and 60% percent from the free throw line. Delonte West should come back along with Iverson & V.Carter good role players can help U win if Doc play the bench more thats his problem Coaching has a lot to do with it. The Wizards are gone to waived R.Lewis so y`all can trade J.O`Neal,J.Johnson,E.Moore, & A.Bradley to Washington for R.Lewis. The new starting lineup Westbrook,Allen,Pierce,KG, & T.Chandler. The new bench D.West,Iverson,M.Thornton,V.Carter,James Jones,R.Lewis, & Perkins MAN we will be unstoppable if y`all think about it. Ainge need to tell Rondo he`s going to trade him along with J.Green, & G.Davis to OKC for Westbrook & Perkins next week so we can get this season on the road and own the Eastern Conference.

    Rondo,J,Green, & G.Davis can go to OKC for Westbrook & Perkins we will win if T.Chandler,M.Thornton,& James Jones come to Boston. doc Rivers got to play the bench more the BIG3 is old now and they need to rest their body for the 4th quarter. We will be 2012 Champions if this trade and signing free agents goes down banner18 will be up their in October of 012. GO CELTICS!

    Wasn't Westbrook the guy that went 7-22 FG and 7TO in a crucial playoff game and didn't pass shit to the All star of the team aka DURANT??

    Bocknowz get the fuck outta here with that BULLSHIT!!!

    It´s normal that Rajon is upset. In my mind, this all Rajon vs Paul saga means that we will have one of the best 2 PGs in the league. That means that in any case we will be extremely lucky.

    I think that Paul gets you "half Dwight" in Boston and also provides much needed scoring and shooting from the PG position. Keeping Rondo means you keep the chemistry, the passing and the leadership intact. I like both situations

    Trading Perkins back to the C's ain't possible, it's in the league rules.
    As for Westbrook, that's not such a bad option bc anytime he's selfish he's getting KG's foot up his ass.
    Boston needs a center like Chandler and another scoring option, and they're good to go.
