Found June 30, 2013 on CLNS Radio:
  Just when fans of the Boston Celtics thought losing Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, along with Jason Terry was gut-wrenching enough comes a report that All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo is being shopped.    NESN.com staff is reporting that the Dallas Mavericks have an interest in trading for Rondo and have contacted the Celtics. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports and Gary Washburn have confirmed this report according to NESN. According to the report the Celtics had shown interest in Shane Larkin, the University of Miami guard to whom Dallas acquired the rights Thursday night.  The Mavericks are interested in unloading Shawn Marion's contract, which expires at the end of next season. The Celtics have been reported to have asked for Dirk Nowitzki in any trade involving Rondo.  CLNS Radio will be monitoring this situation very closely as the free agent period in the NBA begins at midnight tonight.
