Boston, MA - The Celtics offered Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo to the Detroit Pistons for a package that included Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, and Rodney Stuckey, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Boston general manager Danny Ainge and Detroit’s Joe Dumars never spoke, but rather the Celtics had a lower-level executive make the pitch to a Pistons official over the past weekend, league sources said. Detroit immediately rejected the idea, and it never advanced to the two top executives speaking about particulars.

The Pistons trade offer was hardly newsworthy considering the trade offer made later in the day by Celts GM, Danny Ainge. Ainge offered Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Rajon Rondo to the Revolution in exchange for the superstar formerly known as Prince. The Revolution, like the Pistons, quickly declined. The apparent deal-breaker was Ainge’s refusal to trade Tony Allen.
