The Boston Celtics have clearly made the move to rebuild in the last year having offloaded all but one piece that remains from their 2008 NBA Championship side. However, according to reports on Feb. 3, 2014 the Eastern Conference side are believed to be considering letting that last piece go.

President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, commented that he, "was getting calls," about Rondo but that nothing was getting, "serious," according to quotes from WEEI.com journalist Ben Rohrbach.

The 27-year-old former Kentucky Wildcat is averaging 8.4 points and 6.3 assists per game, both well below his career averages of 11 and 8.3.

At this time his value is still high in the market because of his career achievements and talent, but with age being no one's friend in professional sports, is it time for the Celtics to cash in on their last remaining piece of history?

With the NBA trade deadline of February 20, 2014 quickly approaching there is no reason to believe that a trade to see the club bring in some fresh faces and continue to rebuild is not out of the question.
