I think the only reason Rondo hasn’t been traded is because Danny Ainge is looking to swindle someone and hasn’t gotten the right offer. Until he does look for Rondo to stay in Boston. Here is what he had to say courtesy of NESN. Once again, WEEI’s Michael Holley and Jackie MacMullan posed the question to Ainge on Thursday, asking if Rondo will be on the team next season. “Yeah...

Rondo trade talks were serious before deadline, Ainge says nobody is safe this offseason

Nothing new in Celtics nation. Rondo almost traded? Danny Ainge putting the team on notice that nobody is safe. Ainge in some ways is brutally honest, I guess that's the best way to think about it. But their is a certain coldness to it all. I guess I rather hear him say that nobody is safe, compared to being lied to. I'd rather hear Ainge say that Rondo is his guy. But Ainge...
