With the NBA season finally ready to get started, there has been one nagging trade rumor since the beginning. Namely that the Celtics are dangling Rajon Rondo to the Indiana Pacers for point guard Chris Paul.
As of right now, the rumors are being publically denied but Danny Ainge has expressed an interest in adding one of the game’s best players.
Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick confirmed that notion on Tuesday, citing numerous sources in claiming Ainge “is highly motivated” to land the 2005-06 NBA Rookie of the Year. Colleague Paul Flannery explained why the exchange makes painstaking sense but may require a third team to get done. And Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported the C’s have made calls to the Pacers for just that reason.
