It looks as if Rajon Rondo is drawing some interest from an important person within the Knicks organization
In regards to Rajon Rondo and a potential partnership with the New York Knicks next year, all we know to this point is that Carmelo Anthony would love for him to come in next year and run the Triangle offense. Now, though, we’re finding out that one other person with the Knicks would like to see him in the Garden next year.
According to a report from the New York Post, interim head coach Kurt Rambis is pretty high on Rondo and the way that he potentially could take command of Phil Jackson’s offense. Furthermore in the report, Rondo’s agent Billy Duffy has already met with Knicks GM Steve Duffy, making this future marriage all the more a possibility.
Now you can argue all you want about Rondo potentially being a pest on this Knicks team, but at the same time no one can really argue that he probably might be the best fit for now to run the offense in New York. And of course, if it would make Carmelo happy, that’s not all that bad of a thing either, especially since rumors always pop up about the star waiving his no-trade clause for someone to get out of the Big Apple.
With Rondo on being tied to Sacramento and the Kings for one season after signing a one-year, $9.5 million agreement last year, this is definitely something to keep an eye on this summer.
This season for the Kings, Rondo is averaging 11.8 points per game with 11.9 assists and 6.1 rebounds.
