NBA Rumors: Boston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo talks trade deadline


Once again, Boston Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo is at the center of trade rumors.

There have been reports that the New York Knicks are making another run at Rondo, the Sacramento Kings have offered two first round picks, point guard Isiah Thomas and rookie shooting guard Ben McLemore to acquire Rondo, the Celtics would like to ship him off to the Utah Jazz to try an pry away forward Gordon Hayward, who Celtics’ head coach Brad Stevens coached at Butler, among many other rumors.

Rondo, however, is used to it.

“This is year eight for me, and I think this is year eight for me being in trade rumors, especially around this time,” Rondo told the Boston Herald.

“This is pretty much the same thing I go through every year. I think this is the most trade talk maybe, as far as seriousness for me, but, like I said, I still live my life every day and do what I do. Whatever happens, I’ll be able to adjust and adapt to it.”

Rondo is averaging 9.8 points, 7.1 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 27.2 minutes per game since returning from his ACL injury. He has appeared in 10 games.
