Report: Celtics shopping Allen, Rondo

Quote:
Off the record, we have several sources telling us that Ray Allen is, indeed, on the block. It's easy to make the leap, as the Celtics have managed to develop some nice young talent around their Big Three while also managing to win a championship. They might have even repeated had Kevin Garnett been healthy. It's not a stretch to say the Celtics would part with Allen, who has an ending contract next season, if they could add another top young player to the mix. On the record we have an added wrinkle - one that we thought to be highly unlikely until we found it reported with a quote attributed to Celtics GM Danny Ainge. It seems the Celtics are willing to package Rajon Rondo with Allen to make the right deal happen.

They showed they can win in the playoffs without Ray Ray, so he's clear trade bait. I'm a little surprised to see Rondo on the block though, especially after the playoff run he had.

But I don't see what the Celts stand to gain from making any trade involving these two guys. Every position in their starting lineup is solid, I'm not sure what needs they need to be addressing at this point. Unless this is a firesale, but I figured they'd hold off on that for one more year.

Doc isn't too fond on him

if i were a boston fan i'd be up in arms right about now.
the only reason Boston even made it past the first round and deeper into the playoffs was because of rondo.
that kid is getting better and better each day.
if they trade him, it would be Devin Harris/Dallas part 2.
they would regreat it when a year later he becomes one of the premiere PG's in the league.

Oh hey, let's trade one of the up and coming point guards in the NBA who's capable of averaging a triple double in the playoffs.

Source: Rondo Not On Block, Some Minor Discussions On Allen

Quote:
Rumors that Rajon Rondo was put on the block by the Boston Celtics seemed to be message board fodder and sources say the report is not true.

"Can he be frustrating at times? Absolutely. But no one is ready to give up on him," a Celtics source said.

"Whoever put the Rondo rumors out there obviously works for someone other than the Celtics."

The source said that the Celtics may have had some "very minor" conversations about Allen, "but he's not likely going anywhere, either."

He concluded, "My guess is some other team talked to (the Celtics), mentioned Ray in passing, and then the other team took it to people throughout the league who accepted it as gospel. That's how these things get started, and now Danny is going to have to get out there and refute all this stuff that he really had nothing to do with.

"Does the team need some tweaking? Most definitely. But there is no panic around here, and trading Rajon and Ray would be a panic move. That's why it's so absurd."

rondo is obv on the block because he is the celtics most valuble asset to go along with allens horrible contract which is expiring soon. Maybe they have more confidence in starbury then u think ;P but maybe they think its easier to fill a PG spot then a big spot or anything else, and with big baby an FA soon somebody has to move, they are in cap hell.

Rondo's ability to compliment Garnett, Pierce and Allen is phenomenal. You can really tell from watching his game that he fills in the gaps that the big three can't cover very well. To be honest, I don't know if he'd do that much better being on a team where he's relied more heavily upon.

I will get laughed at for this.

But you get Marbury to play under control in that Boston system. He's got the one up on Rondo because he can shoot the basketball. He started finding some emotion and swagger in their last playoff game and he can still play. It wouldn't surprise me if they feel Rondo is expendable in order to get something else in return at another position, and run with Marbury starting at the point.

Marbury isn't playing for the money anymore. He's playing for respect, don't be surprised to see him have one hell of a year next year.
