Knicks reportedly purusing deal for Rajon Rondo, but Celtics not interested

According to a report from Frank Isola in the New York Daily News , the Knicks have been trying to entice the Celtics with a package of players in a deal for point guard Rajon Rondo. The Knicks are said to be looking to move guards Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton along with forward Amar’e Stoudemire. However, the report notes, the Celtics have yet to show much interest.
Isola also reported that Shumpert, who last week was rumored to be headed to the Nuggets  for forward Kenneth Faried, had a second left knee operation over the summer  — a procedure the Knicks did not make public. Isola reported in September that Stoudemire, who only played 29 games last season, also had knee surgery in the summer .
ESPN’s Chris Broussard reported  that the Celtics would be willing to take on Stoudemire, but not for Rondo. Rather, the Celtics would be looking to deal Gerald Wallace and Courtney Lee.
Broussard writes that the Celtics “have every intention of keeping Rondo and seeing if they can build around him.”
Shumpert, the 17th overall pick in the 2011 draft, is averaging 8.3 points and 5.2 rebounds in nine games this season. The 29-year-old Felton, who has been battling a hamstring problem, is averaging 11.1 points and 5.2 assists in nine games. The 31-year-old Stoudemire, playing just 10.5 minutes per game over six contests, averages 3.2 points.
