Rajon Rondo Latest News, Rumors And Updates
Ok, just place yourself in Rajon Rondo’s shoes for a sec. Just imagine how he might be feeling at the moment. After spending seven seasons in a legendary franchise like the Boston Celtics, playing alongside future Hall of Famers like Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and also after winning one championship ring, he now has to live through the tough rebuilding process of his team. Disappointing isn’t it? For sure. So what can he or the team do?
the Celtics won’t trade him away. Of course, there is always the possibility to see Rondo getting involved into a trade, as Boston’s President of Basketball Operations hinted that the team has to do clever moves and good deals.
Thankfully, Rajon Rondo managed to return to action this season and although he wasn’t as dominant as he was prior to his injury, he still made his impact felt. Now, he will have much time during the offseason to fully heal, get back in shape and find his game. It will be crucial for the Celtics to have him at his 100 percent next season, even if they end up trading him away. That way, the team can get the most out of a potential deal.
Now, there will be a bunch of teams willing to acquire Rondo during this summer. After all, most GMs who eye the energetic point guard saw the opportunity in front of their eyes, when Danny Ainge initiated the beginning of the rebuild in Boston, trading away KG, Pierce and also longtime Head Coach Doc Rivers. There were numerous requests for Rondo but Ainge kept on rejecting them.
Of course, the Celtics have several other priorities to take care of during the offseason and unless they hear a great deal for Rondo, they might just choose to stay pat once again. Jeff Green, Kris Humphries and Brandon Bass could all be moved before Rondo this summer.
