There is no secret that the Dallas Mavericks are in high pursuit of soon to be free agent Dwight Howard, but they could soon be kicking things in to an even higher gear in an effort to land the star center. According to reports, a run at a potential trade with the Boston Celtics for Rajon Rondo is not out of the question.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Mavs would love having Rajon Rondo to chase Dwight Howard, but Boston needs Dallas to take multiple contracts off its books, sources say.

Adding Rondo to the Mavericks roster would certainly help them out in their pursuit of Dwight, but would the Celtics take on more bad contracts to ship a star away?
It seems highly unlikely.
However, when you consider these are the same Boston Celtics that just blew up their entire roster by sending Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, anything could be possible.
Dwight Howard’s free agency saga is really heating up, so buckle up and enjoy the ride that will be in full swing beginning July 1.
