Sam Smith of reports that the Celtics could be looking to keep, and even extend Rajon Rondo, and could instead look to move forward Jeff Green.

It sounds more and more like with Rajon Rondo's return and a ceremonial bestowing of captaincy the Celtics plan to keep Rondo and try to get him to extend. It makes sense given the importance of point guards. More executives think the Celtics want to trade Jeff Green. They're probably trying to persuade someone to take Gerald Wallace along with Green, though many figure they'll eventually move Green. A nice exchange could be for Omer Asik, giving the Celtics a point guard/defensive center core to move forward with along with Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk. And Houston could use Green as a stretch four scorer.

You may be asking yourself, "But wait, I just read the Celtics are definitely trading Rajon Rondo." Welcome to the past four years. There have consistently been mixed signals about the Celtics' post-Big-3 plan when it comes to Rondo and the news seems to flop by the day. Much of it seems to depend on where the source is. Celtics fans tend to react with "Well, he's still here, so you know what the answer is," but that's extremely reductive.
