In response to R9R's comment:
Can Rondo affect his trade value by coming out and saying that we will not re-sign with any team that he is traded to?
What if he says he will play out his contract with any team that he's traded to and return to the Celtics in the summer of 2015?
Who says we want him back....
Face the facts...the C's want to deal him or they would not put it out there that he was available at ANY price....
This is a hoot!!! Spin city! From Bleacher Report...
"By setting the asking price for Rondo at two unprotected first-round selections, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has essentially made his floor general untouchable.
It makes sense that Boston’s front office would set the price for Rondo this high, because the point guard was named the Celtics' 15th captain in franchise history earlier this season.
According to ESPN’s Chris Forsberg, first-year head coach Brad Stevens explained that the decision wasn’t made lightly.
“I’ve always believed that captains name themselves with their leadership on and off the court,” he said. “This isn’t about us naming Rondo captain. This is about him earning that title through his play as a Celtic, his accountability as a leader of this team, and his commitment to the Boston community.”"
Captain Untouchable... no less.
