Danny Ainge getting little interest in Boston Celtics Big 3

With the NBA trade deadline just a week away (March 15), the NBA trade rumors are starting to heat up around the league. One of the teams that have been surrounded by trade speculation and rumors as of late is the aging Boston Celtics. Now that the Big 3 of Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are reportedly on the trading block in Beantown, the consensus was that a lot of teams would be interested in acquiring one or more of the future Hall of Famers.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for Celtics GM Danny Ainge as the Big 3 of Boston has gotten little interest thus far. All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo has gotten quite a bit of interest around the league from teams like the arch rival Los Angeles Lakers, but KG, Pierce and Allen may remain Celtics after the NBA trade deadline.

This may ultimately be the best move for the Boston Celtics as keeping the Big 3 might give them a chance to compete for a deep run in the playoffs. There is no telling just how much gas is left in the tank for this once Eastern Conference powerhouse, but the talent is still there that can help this team compete with the best of the best in the NBA.

If there were to be a blockbuster trade in the works and one player were to be headed out of Boston before the trade deadline it would almost certainly be Rajon Rondo at this point. With Rondo having the most valuable and getting the most interest around the league, there is no question that the Celtics will get calls all the way up to and on March 15.

The temptation might be too great for Celtics GM Danny Ainge to pull the trigger on a deal that brings some young talent in return.
