Rivers isn’t Worried About Trade Deadline
The tension is obvious with Thursday’s trade deadline approaching. The Celtics have several players with expiring contracts – which could be used as trade pieces – including Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and O’Neal.
(Danny) Ainge said nothing is imminent, although (Doc) Rivers believes the players are handling the situation well, especially Rajon Rondo, who has been the subject of rumors since December.
“I don’t worry about the trade deadline, it’s coming and there’s nothing I’m going to do about it,’’ Rivers said. “So I don’t worry about that. I don’t think our guys worry about it a lot. They only get asked about it, 15, 20, 30 times a day. So that’s it. But I don’t think it bothers them that much. If you’re human it bothers you a little bit. But I think a lot of the guys have been through it and as a coach I can’t wait until Friday.’’
