Rajon Rondo has been in trade rumors for quite some time now. And, for a Celtics team that seems to be in rebuild mode, they’re probably looking to get some young talent for the star guard. Insert the Milwaukee Bucks. Their recent acquisition of Caron Butler may be for a greater purpose: Use him and other players like Brandon Knight, to get Rondo.

Now, we heard about how Butler’s dreams came to true when he was traded to the Bucks. It was his chance to play for his “home” team. I’m not so sure if the Bucks feel the same way. If they were to get Rondo, adding him to the core of O.J. Mayo and Larry Sanders seems to put the Bucks in playoff position.
Meanwhile, Celtics get potential rising star in Knight, as well as a few draft picks. It seems like a really good deal for both sides. I’m pretty sure the Celtics are going to trade Rondo this season. The question is when. Before the season? During the season, like at the trade deadline? I say go ahead and trade him off in the off-season. You got rumors about how Rondo doesn’t even want to be here. Do you want to risk lowering his stock during the season? Some team will take him, but the price might go down.
Like I said, this is a really good deal for the teams. I like it. What do you think?
