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 coming offseason and he’s made it no secret that he is looking to move on to a bigger market. The Hornets could avoid being the next Cleveland Cavaliers and trade him now.
If the Hornets do decide to trade him, getting Rajon Rondo in return wouldn’t be a bad consolation prize. Rondo is a very good passer and, at times, a lockdown defender. That said, the Hornets will probably decide to keep Paul for now to see if they can convince him to sign an extension to stay in New Orleans.
