Celtics At 7: Rajon Rondo Shipping Out Of Boston?
BOSTON (CBS) – The Celtics are 2-14 in their last 16 games, and 0-2 with Rajon Rondo back following a pair of weekend losses to the Kobe-less Lakers and Orlando Magic.
On Monday night’s edition of Celtics At 7, Rich Keefe, in for Adam Jones, discussed the return of Rondo and the state of the C’s.
Let’s just say it’s not good.
Celtics At 7: Rondo Will Have Higher Trade Value At The Draft
The Celtics are tied with the Utah Jazz for the fourth worst record in the NBA, and with the NBA trade deadline approaching in one month, Rich Keefe can’t help but wonder who the team will be selling off.
A report out of the New York Daily News says that point guard Rajon Rondo will not be sticking around for the rebuild with coach Brad Stevens, and that Danny Ainge is looking to move him to “stockpile picks.”
Rondo has just one year left on his contract for $13 million – a bargain for a player of his caliber.
Sports Hub host Rich Keefe thinks the Celtics could be a contender a few years down the road if they can keep Rondo and add two other All Stars into the mix, so he’s not rushing to trade him away.
However, if you’re Danny Ainge you still have to listen to any and all offers if you think it could be best for the team.
