Once again, this could be the calm before the storm or it could be all sound and fury signifying nothing.
Via the great Steve Bulpett:
Things were said to be "all quiet" on the Celtics front yesterday, but two of the general managers reached yesterday said they’re waiting to see if the prices change on some Celts as Thursday’s NBA trade deadline approaches. Sources around the league have confirmed that calls have been made to the Celtics regarding Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk, Jeff Green and Kris Humphries. But as of last night, there were no ongoing talks regarding any of them.
Nothing surprising here. We've got assets that people want and they want to understand Danny's asking price. In the case of Rondo, I believe very strong that it is a steep price. Same with Sullinger. Everyone else can be had for a lower price but (not surprisingly) generate less interest around the league.
Will the price come down on any of them to the point where real trade discussions will occur? Stay tuned.
