Video: Danny Ainge tells kids he ‘wouldn’t consider’ trading Rondo

In this day and age it’s safe to assume everyone has a cell phone with a camera. A couple of young Lakers fans had one Monday night in Los Angeles, and they asked Danny Ainge to comment on the trade rumors surrounding Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.

“Ship Rondo to the Lakers,” said Laker Fan No.1

“Yeah, Rondo for Gasol, we’ll do that,” said Laker Fan No. 2.

Ainge had a quick answer for the young fans, replying, “Yeah, I’m sure you would.” He added, “No, I wouldn’t even consider it.”

Ainge has publicly come out and said he is not shopping Rondo, but this pseudo-private moment could offer more insight into what Ainge is really thinking. Of course, Ainge was nice enough to take pictures with the kids, so he probably knew he was being filmed.

So basically we found out nothing. The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m.
