The Boston Celtics are open to trading Rajon Rondo
Back before the NBA Lockout began and turned off almost every non-diehard NBA fan in the World, the Boston Celtics were involved in rumors that could have sent All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo to many different places around the NBA. These seem to come up every NBA off-season because Rajon Rondo is the Boston Celtics only real trade-able asset. Since his contract is so low (about $11 million a year) and he is such a talented player, there are many teams, especially the penny pinchers who feel they can contend, who would love to have Rajon Rondo on the roster. When the lockout started, the rumors went away.
Now that the lockout is over (ending), guess what that means? New Rajon Rondo trade rumors!

Rajon Rondo is a passing savant. The man finds such impossible passing angles that you wonder if he's living in a Matrix-type world. Defensively, can drive you more insane than an attacking swarm of bees.
Yet for all his strengths, there are also glaring weaknesses. His jumpshot is... actually, I'll leave it at that. We all know that by now. Beyond a less-than-consistent...
Sports Illustrated's Sam Amick has taken the Rajon Rondo trade rumors to the next level:
Ainge, the sources say, has recently discussed trading Rondo in a deal that nets Paul, but the Hornets don't appear interested in a two-team deal in which Rondo -- who has four years worth approximately $46 million left on his contract -- and Paul would switch places. So Ainge has been...

With the NBA back in business, trade rumors are flowing. One of the most interesting trade rumors is between the Boston Celtics and the New Orleans Hornets. The trade rumor has Rajon Rondo being traded in a package for Chris Paul.
Chris Paul is obviously a much better player than Rajon Rondo, so why is this trade even a possibility? It’s simple: Chris Paul is a free agent this...
The Boston Celtics are trying (rather aggressively, if you believe the rumors) to acquire Chris Paul. But I believe there must be something bigger at play, something bigger even than Chris Paul, even if that “something bigger” seems far-fetched and improbable and very much Dwight Howard.On the surface, trading Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul does not make sense. I certainly believe...
