Rajon Rondo has had enough.
Enough of the losing and enough of the rebuilding, apparently.
According to a report from Jay King, of Masslive.com, Rondo has reportedly told the Boston Celtics that he ‘wants out.’
When Frank Isola raised the topic of trading Rondo, MacMullan replied, “Oh, I hope so. Just get it done. And it will happen because he’s told them he wants out. And no one believes me, but that’s the truth.”
MacMullan didn’t stop there. During some discussion about the trade market for Rondo (more on that later), Isola mentioned the Los Angeles Clippers and their head coach, Doc Rivers.
“He doesn’t like Rondo, remember that,” MacMullan said. “I mean, he’s done with Rondo. They went a good, long way together, but that guy — Rondo drives him nuts. And then (the Clippers have) Chris Paul anyway, they don’t need him.”
MacMullan’s comments were made public in a behind-the-scenes video of Around The Horn. You can view the entire video here:
The question now becomes, who does Rondo want to get traded to? And where would he re-sign longterm? Because, if he doesn’t agree to re-signing longterm with destination x, then there’s really no point for anyone to trade for him.
Besides, Rondo is one of those types of season-loan type of players.
Dallas? Houston? Where?
The Rondo saga is barely beginning. Here we go again.
