Here we go again. Will Rajon Rondo end up with the Knicks by Feb. 20th (trade deadline)?! The Knicks reportedly want it to happen, but it doesn’t look like the Celtics are feeling the same way. Knicks fans what do you think?! Hit the jump for the report…
Despite the Knicks’ continued interest in the 27-year-old point guard, the Boston Celtics have “no interest” in any trade assets the Knicks could offer, according to a report. Rondo is still considered Boston’s most valuable trade chip around the league, but Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge hasn’t made a lot of calls, Lang Greene of Basketball Insiders reports.
“A source with direct knowledge of the situation has informed Basketball Insiders that the Celtics have demonstrated little activity as it relates to potentially moving Rondo at the deadline,” Greene writes. “The team has stopped short of giving Rondo a no-trade guarantee but has made it clear it would take a substantial offer to deal away its floor general.”
The Knicks reportedly maintain the strongest interest, but Iman Shumpert and whatever far-off draft picks New York would offer rightfully don’t interest the Celtics
