Rajon Rondo trade rumors: Boston Celtics to trade Rondo to Sacramento Kings?

Rajon Rondo trade rumors have taken an odd turn. Apparently a Boston Celtics trade of Rondo to the Sacramento Kings is going to take place soon. A report from late Tuesday (Dec. 17) on Yahoo! goes into detail about what might take place. NBA analyst Donny Marshall is stating that the two teams have a major deal in the works. While specifics of what other players will be involved weren't revealed, he stated that multiple Celtics teammates are heading west. If the rumors are to be believed, the deal could go down very soon.

As previously reported on Examiner, the All-Star point guard has already returned to practice and should be playing in games by mid-January. It's even possible that he could suit up for the Celtics at the beginning of the month, giving the team an added weapon to try to maintain a hold on first place in the Atlanta Division. A trade that dismantles the team might seem like an odd move, but not if team president Danny Ainge doesn't believe they can really compete with the current roster.

Recently the Sacramento Kings obtained Rudy Gay in a big trade with the Toronto Raptors, showing that the franchise is ready to start putting a contending team together. If there is a way that the team can hold on to Gay and DeMarcus Cousins and also complete a Rajon Rondo trade, the roster might be good enough to surprise some people in the Western Conference. The question becomes what the Boston Celtics would want in return to give up on an All-Star point guard.

These rumors are surprising in that they give an exact destination for Rondo, but not because he is potentially available. Now the question is whether Danny Ainge will actually pull the trigger.
