Danny Ainge: Celtics Not Trading Rajon Rondo

Tuesday March 13th, 2012

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations, Danny Ainge, squashed rumors about a potential trade of star guard Rajon Rondo, according to CSNNE.com.

“Rondo’s not being traded,” Ainge told CSNNE.com. “I don’t know how many times I have to say it. Rondo’s not being traded.”

“Rondo, from the beginning of this year, has shown a lot of maturity in dealing with all this, back to the Chris Paul rumors and stuff," Ainge said. "Rondo and I have had open dialogue and conversation. He knows where he stands with our organization and how important he is."
