Celtics not looking to trade Rondo

The Celtics will build around Rajon Rondo rather than deal him as part of their offseason remake, Boston president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Monday.

In a major overhaul, the Celtics dealt coach Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers for a 2015 first-round draft pick, then sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets as part of a package that brought back a handful of players plus three more first-round draft picks.

COMMENTARY: Rondo last man standing
BY JEFF JACOBS The Hartford Courant

Rondo.

Even after the great wave of bittersweet sentiment over what Doc Rivers and the Big Three brought to Boston and how they left subsides to a more even tide of long-term expectations, the one word remains inescapable.

Rondo.

We all knew the day would come when Ray Allen would leave the Celtics and that came last year in a free agent signing with the Heat that left Ray with his unfair share of vitriol from too many Celtics fans. Doc expressing his disappointment in Allen and Kevin Garnett saying he lost Ray's telephone number when he headed to South Beach didn't help matters.
