The Boston Celtics have a valuable trade chip in Rajon Rondo but the team has been reluctant to move him when rumors have come up in the past.
According to the Boston Globe, the Celtics are trying to clear roster space but trading Rajon Rondo remains a low priority for the team.
While the Celtics are trying to figure out ways to clear roster space before training camp, moving Rondo is not a high priority. First off, Rondo will be a free agent next summer and fully intends on taking the LeBron James-Carmelo Anthony tour of teams and extending the negotiation process deep into next summer.
Trading Rondo has been something that the Celtics have been rumored to be doing for years now but they haven’t ever made a deal. That makes it seem as though there’s a fat chance he’s traded, but the possibility remains open.
Either way, Rondo isn’t going to be dealt now and the Celtics will continue to make him a part of their rebuilding process.
