ESPN's Marc Stein had spoke about the possibility of the Rockets wanting to target Rondo because of previous interest in him in the past.
Bulpett reported that "multiple sources" confirmed that there had been no talk between the two teams regarding Rondo.
Ainge has been clear that it would have be a star to get in return for Rondo, something that Houston most likely would not be able to conjure up at the moment, especially without involving a third team.
Bulpett wrote that Ainge "has been pretty firm in the past on his need to get a major player in return for his All-Star point guard."
For now, we will wait and see what rumors will pop in the near future. It looks like Rondo will be here for the time being.
