Rajon Rondo's agent Bill Duffy maintains that his client will remain with the Boston Celtics. Duffy was at the Celtics' practice facility today and talked with Boston general manager Danny Ainge about reports that Rondo could be traded for Chris Paul or someone else.
Duffy said about the meeting:
"I'm told that he's their guy," Duffy told the Herald. "There's been repeated interest in him, as there is in other players. But they have high expectations for Rajon now and moving forward." (via Boston Herald)
Duffy also said that the trade talk has been unsettling for Rondo, which is understandable if Rondo is indeed staying with the Celtics.
"It's just disturbing," said Duffy. "It's disturbing for everybody. It's disturbing for me. It's disturbing for him, because it makes one think, ‘Where do I stand in this relationship?' Particularly because he's a darn good player, and this is a very successful franchise, and he's one of the key players on the franchise."
