There's apparently a good chance that Rondo ends up staying put in Boston, though. After soliciting offers for the 26-year-old, the Celtics have "disengaged" on that front, according to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger.
Berger reports that one executive compared the Celtics' posture with Rondo to the Pistons' with Rodney Stuckey, whom Detroit no longer is actively shopping.
A lot could change between now and Thursday's deadline, but a deal is seeming less and less likely for the Celtics, as general manager Danny Ainge has stated that "nothing is even close" at this point.
Ainge, however, did say that he continues to receive a "handful" of calls each day, although it's unclear how many of those are regarding his starting point guard.
