The NBA’s most in demand player Kevin Love has set tongues wagging after being pictured in Boston.
Love is keen to leave the Timberwolves to join a team who made the playoffs, with one year remaining on his contract before he becomes a free agent.
Rondo himself has been mentioned as a trade chip in some reports, but Celtics GM Danny Ainge has previously indicated the point guard is going nowhere.
Love and Rondo were said to have attended the Boston Red Sox baseball game together, and rumors of a trade to the Celtics will no doubt intensify.
If Love expected anything else heading into the speculation heavy month of June ahead of the NBA Draft and free agency, he was very much mistaken.
