ANALYSIS: Barnes has been in trade rumors surrounding Boston for a while now, and while they were rumored to be interested in Jerami Grant, Mannix reports the Pistons do not plan to trade the breakout forward. Mannix also writes that the Celtics have that $28.5 million trade exception, but are in no rush to use it before the trade deadline. Boston is 20-18 and in fifth place in the East.
