10 Incredible NBA-NFL Similarities

Boston Celtics: Why Rajon Rondo Won't Be Traded By Ciaran Mills: Staff Writer/Hoopstuff... Although Rondo should be traded (he doesn’t fit in with the whole rebuilding process going on in Boston) I don’t think it will happen this season. The Celtics have had all off-season to trade him away and despite the multitude of rumors, Rondo remains in Boston. They now have another point guard in the form of number six pick Marcus Smart, and are likely to bleed him into the system until he can eventually take over the reins from Rondo. He will earn just under $13 million this year, a perfectly reasonable amount for one of the top point guards in the league. Plenty of teams have enough cap space to trade for him (which is mentioned a lot on this site), but a deal that interests Boston hasn’t come along yet. If he does leave the team where he’s plied his trade for eight seasons, and where he won a ring in 2008, there’s no telling where he might end up. Nearly every team in the league has been linked to him, from rebuilding teams like the Kings, to playoff contenders such as the Rockets. There were rumors that the Kings even put in an offer for him in February, with Ben McLemore, Isaiah Thomas and two picks going to Boston. However, the Celtics declined and everything remained as it was. Some people feel that Danny Ainge is being unreasonable about the number of picks he wants for Rondo, especially considering how many the Celtics already have; 17 picks in the next 4 drafts. This stubbornness from the Celtics’ GM could cost his team, especially as they are undergoing a massive rebuilding process, but as they have had an offseason to trade him and he is still a Celtic, I will say that he won't be traded this season. Site owner and publisher Mike Elworth would disagree.
