Rajon Rondo, agent deny he asked Celtics to trade him
Through a spokesperson, Rajon Rondo denied that he wants out of Boston.
Through a spokesperson, Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and his agent, Bill Duffy, denied that he asked the team to trade him, via Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald. A since-removed video of ESPN's Jackie MacMullan talking about Rondo off-air on Around The Horn had been posted to YouTube, and maybe it shouldn't have been.
MacMullan did not report the trade demand; she informally discussed it with other reporters. Given that the behind-the-scenes clip has been taken down now, you have to wonder whether or not she had given permission for it to be shared in the first place. In any case, she said, "He's told them he wants out. And no one believes me, but that's the truth."
Regardless of what Rondo has or hasn't expressed to Celtics management, trade rumors are bound to persist throughout this coming season if he's not moved beforehand. The 28-year-old will be a free agent next summer, and Boston hasn't surrounded him with a supporting cast good enough to win big.
