Mavericks want Rondo, but Celtics ask for Dirk
There’s been word that Rajon Rondo is not a part of the Boston Celtics tanking..err, rebuilding plan. It’s natural for the teams that actually want to contend to inquire about an All Star, arguably Top five point guard who has already won championships. The main problem for the Mavericks is they don’t have assets to trade. Except one. The one player they would never ever place on the table.
It’s a long shot but you couldn’t blame Danny Ainge for trying. He gave up his two championship cornerstones (even if they’re aging) for bit players and expiring contracts. Perhaps he thought he started a trend. Rondo is definitely an asset, but Dirk Nowitzki? Mark Cuban must’ve thought he he got punked.
