There was a lot of trade talk prior to the NBA Draft. Now that Marcus Smart and James Young are in the fold, does that mean they are here to stay?

Jackie MacMullan of ESPNBoston.com still expects some movement from the Celtics throughout the offseason, no matter who it involves.

"Everything's up for grabs here," said MacMullan. "If you trade Rondo, which I expect they will, then Smart is part of the future."

Although she expects a deal, MacMullan doesn't believe Ainge will trade Rondo unless he gets the desired value.

"He takes a lot of chances," explained MacMullan. "One of them will be that he's not going to take pennies on the dollar for Rondo. If he ends up having to let him walk and use that cap space, I can see him doing that."
