Do you like random old trade rumors? What if I told you it was pretty funny? OK, here it is, via Chris Broussard of ESPN.com:
After last season’s playoffs, the Celtics offered Rondo and Jeff Green to Oklahoma City for Russell Westbrook and Kendrick Perkins, sources have told Broussard. The Celtics, looking for another scorer who can create his own offense, thought Westbrook might be available after his erractic postseason play. But Oklahoma was not interested in the deal.
Basically, this is Danny Ainge calling Sam Presti and saying, “Hey, I’ve still got the receipt on Jeff Green. Any way I could return him?”
And then Presti probably had a good laugh. And then he hung up.
