CelticsBlogJackie MacMullan said in a video posted Wednesday by ESPN's Around the Horn that Boston Celtics captain Rajon Rondo "wants out" and that a trade "will happen."
But whether or not Jackie's words are true doesn't matter here. The fact is there just aren't many teams that would be interested in Rondo right now, and of those teams, very few have what it takes to get a deal done.
Even she says, "I don't see how you get 80 cents on the dollar for him. Tell me where."
And I can't tell you where.
One can only hope, Jackie is usually pretty reliable and doesn't put words in players mouth from what I've read. We've all heard the Rondo rumors for the past 3+ years and we should of cashed in when we had a chance to get value out of him. He is in the way of Smart's development now and needs to go IMO. I don't want him around the younger guys with his attitude, a guy who can only get up for the playoffs/national televised games isn't a guy you give a boat load of money too, or want running your franchise. Not to mention a guy who would let the business side of the game affect how he plays, another reason he isn't the guy you want to build around. I'm sick of hearing his name (weird username eh) and hope Jackie is right and a trade happens soon. A guy who shows up to big games late and thinks traffic is a reasonable excuse.
