LOS ANGELES — The trade deadline came and went without a move for the Celtics. Nothing. Just a couple of proposed deals that never came to fruition.

Bass, Kris Humphries, Jerryd Bayless, and Jeff Green all have expressed the desire to return although their names were bandied about in trades rumors that Rajon Rondo called “annoying.” Rondo is also embracing his new leadership role.
It’s not that these players are content with losing. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
