#NBA Duro el dueño de los Celtics con Rondo. "Es muy cabeza dura, difícil de dirigir", pegó Wyc Grousbeck. ¿Seguirá el base en Boston?

Ben Rohrbach

"We want to hang banners in Boston." On Danny Ainge's slow rebuild & selling the same Celtics roster all over again. bit.ly/1snbvT1

Jeff Goodman

Celtics goal is to boost Rondo's trade value. Ainge, Stevens saying all right things about attitude, leadership, etc. Poor decision by Wyc.

Jeff Goodman

Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck's comments on Rondo being uncoachable hardly insightful -- but not very bright if want to keep or trade him.

Chris Sheridan

Do harsh comments from #Celtics ownership about Rajon Rondo's attitude signal an eventual trade? More @SheridanBlog: sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/23/sh-…

Ben Rohrbach

Earlier today … @Gary Washburn: "East favorites?" Ainge: "Cle, Chi, Wash." @BillDoyle15: "You left off Celtics." Ainge: "Yes. Yes, I did."

Ben Rohrbach

Wyc Grousbeck says someone called him this morning about buying the Celtics, "and it was a quick conversation. The team is not for sale."

Scott Souza

Takes on #Celtics media avail: Wyc disappointed in lack of 'fireworks' - putting his faith of improvement in Brad Stevens' coaching ability.

Scott Souza

Takes on today's #Celtics media avail: Team will push potential of draft picks as theme over lack of moves. Plus, they love Marcus Smart.

Scott Souza

Takes on #Celtics media avail: Ainge saying all positive things on Rondo, but allowed captain's "patience" to be gauged at trade deadline.

Scott Souza

Takes on #Celtics from today's avail: While all but admitting talent not much improved, Brad Stevens believes he can 'coach' up this group.

A. Sherrod Blakely

I asked #Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck about possibly selling team. Prospective buyer called few min. ago. Wyc told them the C's not 4 sale

Gary Dzen

Hmmm RT @Jay King: Wyc Grousbeck said someone called him five minutes ago trying to buy the Celtics. Said they aren't for sale.

Want to wish a very happy birthday to two legendary Celtics: Ricky Davis (35) and Eric Montross (43).

#Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck: I would have welcomed 'major' deal, but wasn't there. Like draft picks. Think we'll be better than last year.

Scott Souza

#Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck: Absolutely I want Rajon Rondo to stay. When you speak with him, think he will reiterate he wants to stay.

Scott Souza

#Celtics president Danny Ainge: you need players w/ cache to attract other stars in #NBA. Rajon Rondo is our player (w/ cache) to get those.

Jay King

Ainge said Celtics are still contemplating punishment for Vitor Faverani, who was arrested for drunk driving.
