    Celtics Attempting To Move Rajon Rondo?

    Just earlier today, we passed along that ESPNBoston.com’s Chad Forsberg suggested it was unlikely Rajon Rondo would be moved, but Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News hears from “more than a few” executives around the league that the C’s will try to deal Rondo, either at the trade deadline or before the draft this June. According to Lawrence, the proposed move would probably be appealing to the recently returned Rondo since he likely won’t be eager to accept a role on a rebuilding team. He’s signed through 2014/15, and will earn about $13MM next season.

    There have been a steady flux of Rondo trade rumors since the Celtics and Nets hooked up last summer on the blockbuster deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. Boston GM Danny Ainge has repeatedly dismissed these rumors and continues to stress that he pegs Rondo as the cornerstone to build the franchise around. Rondo has recently been part of rumors involving a potential deal with the Knicks, but Lawrence hears that Phoenix and Houston are two of the most likely landing spots for him. Dallas seems to have an affinity for Rondo as well, but it doesn’t look like they’ll have the proper assets to put together a desirable package for Boston.

    Lawrence’s piece implies it’s essentially a foregone conclusion that Rondo will be dealt, which I find a little surprising since there are so many questions about how he will bounce back and perform on the court after recovering from his ACL tear. Rondo’s talent is enticing though, and it’s tough to imagine there are many teams in the league that would object to his presence on their roster. We’ll likely continue to hear trade chatter about Rondo as the February 20th trade deadline fast approaches.

    This and four bucks will get you coffee at Starbucks.  No one knows anything, but there's air time and column inches to fill, so everyone knows everything.

    I do not think our draft choices are going to be high enough to get one of the top two or three.  So, we will most likely be building around Rondo.  Look for a trade that includes several of our draft choices for a top talent.

    or Rondo for Okafor/2014 1st ?

    Dragic, Bledsoe & Len for Rondo & Bradley also works ... a #1 in 2014 may be too much to ask though ... Hahaha!!!

    That's the problem, there is no top talent available.

    Can you give us examples of top talent that are available right now?

     

    It's very clear Ainge will build through the draft.

    Trading for Joel Anthony and the remaining 3.8m for 2nd round picks is an indication of what direction is headed.

    Those expecting the Celts to be contenders in 2-3 years are being unrealistic.
