Irish Coffee: Rating ridiculous Celtics rumors

So many trade rumors, so little time.

On Thursday, NBA teams could officially deal players signed this past offseason, and March 15 is the deadline, so Celtics president Danny Ainge‘s phone bill is probably higher than Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney fees at this point.

While Ainge denied actively shopping Celtics All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo [1] in an interview on WEEI’s Big Show [2], he’s made it clear Rondo, Ray Allen [3], Kevin Garnett [4] and everybody else — including captain Paul Pierce [5] — are available for the right package. So far, the price hasn’t been right.

We’d be remiss not to mention the current rumors, but let’s be serious about the possibilities. Here goes.

LAMAR ODOM, Mavericks forward

STEPHEN CURRY, Warriors guard

DERON WILLIAMS, Nets point guard
RUSSELL WESTBROOK [11], Thunder point guard

JOSH SMITH, Hawks forward

MICHAEL BEASLEY, Timberwolves [18] forward

PAU GASOL [20], Lakers forward/center
