Rajon Rondo would love to play with friend Rudy Gay

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

This is not a rumor. This is just some buddies who would like to play with each other.

Rajon Rondo is not the GM of the Boston Celtics. Rudy Gay has little to no say in where he ends up being traded to (if, in fact he is dealt at all, which kind of seems like a certainty but still). So this is really just a story about two friends and one saying how much he would love to play with the other. But since I know you'll want to hear about it, I'm passing it along.

While Rondo, according to Gay, is giving sound advice, the Boston Celtics guard can’t help being a little selfish. "It’s hard to talk to [Rondo] because he is always saying, ‘We need you over here. We need you over here,’ " Gay said. "So it’s not easy talking to him. But he’s being a friend, just telling me about keeping everything together and he makes you feel like you are still valuable."

In other vague, not-really-rumors news, Chad Ford mentioned in his chat yesterday that the Celtics are still very active on the trade market.

Yes. I would put them up there with the Rockets, Grizzlies and Lakers as the most active teams right now. I'd be shocked if they didn't get something done. May or may not include Rondo, but the Celtics are looking for a youngish player to fill out their front line.

I'm kind of encouraged to hear that they are looking for "youngish" bigs rather than short term plugs with aging legs. Of course finding a fit is always a challenge, so we'll be watching closely over the next several weeks. But you knew that already.
