Celtics' Ainge says Rondo not on trade block


Posted Jul 1, 2013 4:50 PM

BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge says he's not trying to trade point guard Rajon Rondo.

But he says he'll keep listening to calls.

Ainge says teams are assuming that since the Celtics have unloaded coach Doc Rivers and stars Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett they're looking to dump everything of value. But he says the team wants to keep Rondo as it tries to rebuild through the draft.

Ainge says he's gotten a lot of calls on Rondo.

NBA free agency began on Monday. Ainge says the team doesn't have the cap room or the interest in adding a free agent this summer.
