The Boston Celtics have made one thing clear – they’re not selling low on their point guard. But that doesn’t mean they’re not willing to sell, assuming the price is right.
Rondo has been available for months, but the price is high.
Ford was responding to a fan question in his chat regarding Rondo’s availability and ability of the Houston Rockets to acquire him via trade (something Ford suggested was unlikely).
Of course, there’s a drastic difference between a player being ‘available’ and being actively shopped. A player like Rondo is ‘available’ – in short, if a team wants to overpay they can. Meanwhile, a player like Andre Miller of the Denver Nuggets is somebody that’s being actively shopped, so the difference isn’t just a word in the dictionary.
That said – it’s still relatively intriguing that Rondo has been available for that long.
Can’t help but wonder how many teams made offers for the former Kentucky Wildcats point guard.
