It’s been an interesting off-season for fans of the Boston Celtics with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett being traded to Brooklyn, but the storied NBA franchise might not be finished making moves if the latest rumors are true.
Rajon Rondo is now the best player on the team, but he is also the highest paid and coming off a serious injury. General Manager Danny Ainge has told reporters that he doesn’t intend to trade the youngster, but reports on the internet say otherwise as Ainge looks to clear some room under the salary cap and make a move for a couple of big-name free agents next summer.
Bleacher Report writer Dan Favale has speculated that a deal with Houston is possible, especially now that Dwight Howard has signed with the Rockets. The trade would have Rondo playing with Howard and James Harden in Houston, with disgruntled big man Omer Asik and point guard Jeremy Lin going to Bean Town.
This time of year NBA trade rumors are buzzing around social media, but it has been relatively quiet, meaning something could be in the works and this trade is one that would benefit both franchises now and into the future.
