Fab Melo might be available (per Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski), but it's highly unlikely that either Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett or Rajon Rondo change teams before the 3:00 PM trade deadline.
Kevin Garnett has a no-trade clause that he's not going to waive, if what he said during All-Star weekend is any indication. So barring some unforeseen change, KG will still be wearing Celtic green after Thursday's festivities draw to a close.
The Rajon Rondo situation is a bit more interesting.
ESPN's Chris Broussard claims that he's available, but other sources have shown that the opposite might be true. Just take a look at these contradictory tweets:
So, who to believe? Personally, I'm going with Amick, but we'll have to wait until the deadline to see who's ultimately proved correct.
Wojnarowski let us know that there was a bit of a trade discussion between the Celtics and Brooklyn Nets, but that obviously hasn't come to fruition:
The Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets have discussed a trade for Celtics star Paul Pierce, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Nets' willingness to a deal centered on forward Kris Humphries, guard MarShon Brooks and a first-round draft pick, but the Celtics want a more substantial package to consider moving Pierce, league sources said.
"The Celtics still highly value Pierce and it wouldn't make sense to trade him for that kind of a package if they're keeping Kevin Garnett," one league source said.
Boston has shown interest in forward Mirza Teletovic and securing another possible first-round pick, but the Nets have shown no inclination to pay that steep of a price for Pierce.
It didn't take long for these talks to be dismissed, either:
