The Boston Celtics plan to continue the summer cleaning of their roster, and president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he welcomes all calls about his team’s talent but stressed again Monday that they do not currently plan to move All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo as part of the rebuilding process.
“The calls are coming in, the calls have not been going out,” Ainge said. “I think that the assumption is that, [given] what we are trying to accomplish, the reports are such that maybe the assumption is that we’ll give away any of our players. We have had calls. On Jeff [Green], on Courtney [Lee], on Brandon [Bass], on Rondo, on Jared [Sullinger] and our draft pick, Kelly [Olynyk]. There’s been calls for all those guys. And maybe the assumption is we are just changing everybody, but we’re not. We’re starting to get younger.”
