Rajon Rondo to Rockets trade rumors swirling

By Ian Sacks,

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was on the trading block around the trade deadline in February but remained in Beantown. Now, as he enters the final year of his contract, rumors are swirling again about a possible deal.

One of the biggest suitors for the four time All-Star is the Houston Rockets. While there have been reports claiming that the two teams are in trade talks, the Celtics organization refuses to confirm these allegations are true.

Danny Ainge, the Celtics president of basketball operations, does not seem to be in a rush to deal Rondo and appears to be waiting for another team to offer a star player, reports NESN.

Several sources have denied the notion that there have been any trade talks between the Rockets and the Celtics, according to The Boston Herald.

Still, before the Herald's report, ESPN’s Mark Stein reported on Twitter about the Rockets being involved in the Rondo discussion.

The Rockets are also reported to be inquiring about Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love. Love, like Rondo, will be a free agent next summer, and he has expressed his desire to play elsewhere.

The Rockets are looking to add to their team after Chris Bosh turned down their offer and decided to stay with the Miami Heat and Chandler Parson left Houston to join the Dallas Mavericks, notes Dime Magazine.
