Danny Ainge Denies Trade Rumors Surrounding Rajon Rondo


We can totally ignore this latest Rajon Rondo denial from Danny Ainge or take it with a grain of salt.

On Monday, Danny Ainge told the Boston Herald once again, that the Celtics aren’t interested in trading Rajon Rondo, nor have they fielded calls from teams about the point guard.

“I haven’t talked to any teams about Rajon Rondo,” Celts’ president of basketball operation Danny Ainge told the Herald this morning.

He has, however, fielded a number of calls wanting to now if the rumors are true.

“It’s frustrating,” Ainge said.

He went on to reiterate that Rondo, still rehabbing from ACL surgery, is a major part of the Celtics’ plans going forward.

OK so maybe Ainge hasn’t offered Rondo to anyone, but are we to believe that he’s not even taking calls, or listening to offers?
