Celtics Trade Rumors: Rondo Isn't Focused On Deadline

Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo, has been the subject of trade rumors for months now, but he says he's not allowing the talks to affect his play on the court.

I don't think anyone's really worried about it, honestly. Whatever happens, happens," Rondo said after the Celtics' 104-86 win over Portland. "No one's really focused on all the trade talk. We've done a pretty good job throughout this trade talk of just getting wins. We're professionals. We're an older team. Trades happen."

Rondo has averaged 11 points, 12 assists and 5 rebounds in his last games, in which the Celtics have won four. Boston is 6-1 since the All-Star break and looking to make a move on the Philadelphia 76ers for first place in the Atlantic Division and a top four seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

Rondo is owed $36M over this next three seasons.
