Rajon Rondo and His Agent Deny Report of Trade Request

Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 11.21.04 PMJust hours after a video report surfaced that claimed Rajon Rondo wanted a trade out of Boston, the Celtics star point guard and his representatives reached out to reporters to dispute that report.

Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald¬†has the statement from Rondo’s reps late Sunday night:

A spokeswoman for Duffy’s agency said that both men have discussed the reports, and publicly deny that any such request was made.

“Neither Bill nor Rajon know where this has come from, but it didn’t come from them,” Alyson Furch said in a text tonight. “They want this on the record. Neither has spoken to anyone about this.”

The video of Jackie MacMullan’s comments on Around The Horn about Rondo “wanting out” of Boston has been removed from YouTube.

In what should be an interesting season of twists and turns surrounding the fate of Rondo as a member of the Celtics, the point guard’s statement Sunday should be an indication that he will be on the Celtics for at least the start of the 2014-15 season.

What happens from there will largely depend on how Danny Ainge wants to map out the rest of the team’s rebuild.

We’ll have more on this story as it develops in the coming days.

    Reporters just want juicy stories.

    the only thing is, I am pretty convinced Rondo wants out. Notice that the report here says that they want it on record that they haven’t talked to anybody about it, not that Rondo wanting a trade isn’t true. He seemed very cold and aloof from the team last year IMO. I’ll believe otherwise when I hear about him signing a deal (which I hope doesn’t happen)
