Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Celtics head Coach Doc Rivers and president Danny Ainge have realized this isn't their year to contend, and are willing to deal any one of the big three or Rajon Rondo if the right deal comes about. Ainge is looking to clear cap space and receive draft picks in exchange.
Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett will both be free agents at the end of the season, and either one of them could be traded to a contending team to help with their playoff push.
Paul Pierce has some years left on his contract, and Wojnarowski believes he's the most likely to be dealt for that reason.
I think trading Pierce would be an ill-advised move. He's second on Boston's all-time scoring list behind John Havlicek and has played for the Celtics for his entire career. "The Truth" is a fan favorite, and many fans would resent the move.
