Rajon Rondo is not looking to be traded and has made a home with the Boston Celtics, but is it up to him? Danny Ainge, President of Basketball Operations has a history of changing unexpectedly the Celtics’ roster by the trade deadline every season, and surprisingly Rondo’s name might surface.
Should that opportunity arise, GM Sam Hinkie needs to give it serious consideration.
The All-Star point guard would be an immediate play maker who would improve and strengthen the team's offense, improve the current weak back court and bring a guaranteed talent. Rondo would be able to replace the inexperienced Michael Carter-Williams at that position, elevating significantly their level of play.
In addition, he could attract similar talented free agents.
Rondo averages 1.8 steals per game and over the past two seasons, he has been averaging nearly as many assists as points, both in double digits.
He would also be a significant and a valued mentor to the rookie players that sprinkle most of the 76ers roster now.
However, Rondo is only shooting 24.1 percent on three-pointers and 62.1 percent on free throws. Still, the 76ers would not get him cheap and may need to give up next summer’s draft pick.
Rondo could serve as a key contributor in the team's rebuilding efforts but he might also come with attitude.
