Teams won’t give up attempting to trade for Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. The latest team to put together an offer for the Celtics guard who is coming off of a torn ACL is the Detroit Pistons.
According to the Boston Globe, the Pistons are offering Brandon Knight and an expiring contract in exchange for Rondo.
Of course, that won’t be nearly enough to get a deal done, but it is a start. If the Pistons are truly willing to make a deal happen, they would need to include Greg Monroe or Andre Drummond in the deal.
Boston has made it clear that they are in full-blown rebuilding mode after trading away Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. Rondo is the last true star player that they have from their impressive core that made them a powerhouse in the Eastern Conference, so it could be hard for the team to send him packing as well.
It will be interesting to see if anything comes of these trade talks moving forward.
