Celtics In Talks With Mavs For Rajon Rondo

Rajon Rondo

After years of flirting with the idea, sources tell ESPN.com that the Boston Celtics are in talks with the Dallas Mavericks for a Rajon Rondo trade.

Sources say the teams are discussing a trade that would send the All-Star guard to Dallas in exchange for multiple draft picks, as well as up-and-coming Mavericks center Brandan Wright and other players.

Rondo is in the final year of his contract (at $12.9 million), so sources say that any team that can come to terms on a trade with Boston will likely will request permission to confer with Rondo and his representatives to discuss his future beyond the contract.

After Boston’s Wednesday night (Dec. 17) 109-92 win over the Orlando Magic, the NBA star shrugged off the trade talks.

“[Trade talk has been] a way of life since I’ve been here,” he said. “It’s just part of it.”
