The clock is ticking with the March 15 trade deadline approaching in the NBA, and the Boston Celtics are expected to make a move within the next two weeks, according to league sources of Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy.
Kennedy wrote on Twitter that the Celtics have been "very active in trade talks." What does that mean? It's unclear, but the four likeliest candidates to be moved are Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Rondo's name has been thrown back into the rumor mill after an ESPN.com report that the Celtics were aggressively shopping the star guard, but Celtics' GM Danny Ainge and head coach Doc Rivers both denied the reports.
Allen is also drawing a lot of interest from teams, according to a report from The Sporting News. Pierce, however, is the likeliest member of the Celtics to be traded, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Garnett, meanwhile, hasn't had any major national talk surrounding him, but he still could be moved, despite his $20 million-plus contract.
You see what I mean. One reporter says this, another says that. Get ready.
