Rajon Rondo

  1. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EST

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  2. Rondo on dealing with trade rumors: ‘I can only control so much’

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    All of the chatter leading up to Thursday’s trade deadline is a blast for fans to take in, but it’s far less enjoyable for the players whose names continually pop up as being part of reported rumors or discussions. Rajon Rondo is an interesting case, because he seems like exactly the type of player a…

  3. Kings’ GM denies that Ben McLemore has been part of trade talks

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:35 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Portraits 2014

    Ben McLemore is part of the Kings future and general manager Pete D’Alessandro wants you to know that. In no uncertain terms. McLemore’s name popped in a trade rumor where he was part of a package suggested for Boston’s Rajon Rondo, but the deal died because Sacramento knows there is little chance (if any) Rondo…

  4. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EST

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  5. Report: Celtics interested in Utah’s Gordon Hayward. So are a lot of teams. Doesn’t mean he’ll be moved.

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:04 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Gordon Hayward has a lot of fans in NBA front offices. His ability to shoot it on a catch-and-shoot or off the bounce, his ability to create his own shot, the fact he’s a willing defender has a lot of teams seeing him as a good fit for what they do. He’s also a restricted…

  6. Report: Trying to sell high, Kings make Isaiah Thomas available in trades

    Feb 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Kings fans love Isaiah Thomas and with good reason. We can all relate to the undersized guy picked dead last (60th) in the draft who has sliced his way to an impressive NBA season — 20.2 points and 6.3 assists a night, with a true shooting percentage of 56.8. He’s great at taking angles off…

  7. Toronto Raptors reportedly covet Rajon Rondo

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:28 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    The Toronto Raptors have reportedly deemed the value of a playoff push trumps the risk of Kyle Lowry’s pending free agency. That’s what makes a Lowry-to-the-Knicks trade so unlikely. Not only do the Knicks have to offer fair value, they must offer so much return, it pushes Toronto off its current course. But what if…

  8. Report: Knicks still pursuing Kyle Lowry trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Kyle Lowry

    The will they?-won’t they?-will they?-won’t they? saga of trade negotiations between the Knicks and Raptors involving Kyle Lowry is reportedly back to the “will they?” stage. Ian Begley of ESPN: With the NBA trade deadline three days away, the Knicks continue to try to engage the Raptors in an attempt to acquire point guard Kyle…

  9. Report: Kings offered McLemore, Thomas, picks for Rondo. Didn’t happen.

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:30 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    The Kings have their foundation up front in DeMarcus Cousins, but they need another elite player on the perimeter. Their GM Pete D’Alessandro knows it and is going after that piece. Like trying to land Rajon Rondo. Check out this interesting tidbit from Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears in his weekly power rankings (hat tip Celtics’…

  10. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EST

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

  11. Report: If you want Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green then Celtics want a lot in return

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:53 PM EST

    rondo

    This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

  12. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas calls Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after on-court incident (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

    thomas bayless

    This is yet another example of why you don’t give a max contract to a player with the temperament of DeMarcus Cousins without the presence of any veterans on the roster to help with the team’s leadership. But this is only about him tangentially, so we’ll revisit this in a moment. Late in the fourth…

  13. Coach Stevens says it “doesn’t look like” Rondo plays Friday vs. Kings

    Feb 7, 2014, 4:42 PM EST

    It’s not about this season, it’s about the next five or 10 in Boston. So with Rajon Rondo sore — he missed practice on Thursday because of it, he’s been a busy man since his return — it is very possible he doesn’t play on Friday. Teams want to take care of their franchise face…

  14. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  15. Rondo uses signature ball fake to lose defender before scoring (VIDEO)

    Feb 3, 2014, 9:31 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo looked like his old self in Sunday’s lone NBA contest, finishing with 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting to go along with 10 assists and six rebounds to get his first win since returning to Boston’s lineup this season. This play, where Rondo used his signature behind-the-back ball fake to lose a defender before…

  16. The Extra Pass: What the NBA gets that the NFL doesn’t, plus Sunday’s recap

    Feb 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    This past weekend, David Stern retired as commissioner of the NBA. After 30 years, he left as quietly as someone of his stature could. Instead of choosing a time where the NBA was in the spotlight to have his final farewell, Stern left in the middle of Super Bowl hoopla, when the coverage of his…

  17. Celtics get first win since Rondo’s return by beating Magic

    Feb 2, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo returned to the Celtics lineup Jan. 17 from an ACL injury that prematurely ended his 2012-13 season. Boston’s only win since then, however, had been one against the Wizards that came on Jan. 22, in a game where Rondo was held out on the second night of a back-to-back as a precaution. That…

  18. Brooklyn Nets set NBA record-low with 17 rebounds in game

    Feb 1, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Serge Ibaka, Andray Blatche

    The Brooklyn Nets grabbed 17 rebounds in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. 17! That set a new NBA record for fewest rebounds in a game, breaking the 18 the Detroit Pistons had against the Charlotte Hornets on November 28, 2001. Again, 17! This season, a single player has grabbed at least…

  19. Rondo sits out second game of back-to-back against Sixers as a precaution

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:07 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo has appeared in six games for the Celtics since returning from ACL surgery a couple of weeks ago, but given the drop-off in talent on the roster from when he suited up last season, the 0-6 record Boston has endured is somewhat understandable. It also conveniently factors into the team’s decision to take…

  20. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston for first time as Brooklyn Nets

    Jan 26, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    BOSTON – Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston today as conquering heroes. Centerpieces of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team, Pierce and Garnett will always be heroes of the past for fans here. But now, they’ve gone from goats to heroes of the present with the Brooklyn Nets, who are an NBA-best 9-1 in…

  21. Rajon Rondo offered contract extension by Celtics, says he wouldn’t mind finishing his career in Boston

    Jan 25, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Celtics GM Danny Ainge revealed earlier this week that the team offered Rajon Rondo a contract extension roughly a month ago, one which the All-Star point guard politely declined. Ainge wasn’t surprised that the offer was turned down, and in fact he seemed to expect it. From CBS Boston (via SB Nation): “In the Collective…

  22. LaMarcus Aldridge thinks he should have been an All-Star starter

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:53 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA coaches and players were voting for who got to be an All-Star Game starter, LaMarcus Aldridge would be a lock in the West. But the fans wanted to see other guys (Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love is your West starting frontcourt) so Aldridge will again be selected by the coaches…

  23. Let’s actually set criteria for selecting All-Stars

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Toronto Raptors

    Has Dwyane Wade or Kyle Lowry had a better season? Lowry smashes Wade in win shares (6.4 to 3.1) and tops him in Estimated Wins Added (6.5 to 5.7), too. There’s value in staying on the court, and because Wade has been hobbled by knee issues this year, it’s clear Lowry, an impressive and consistent…

    To them this is more than a business — Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki are friends. Technically they are boss and employee, but neither sees it that way. “I kick his ass whenever I’ve wanted to,” Cuban said last week, joking around about his friend the way you ride yours. “It’s kind of like we…

  25. Celtics’ Avery Bradley sprains ankle, could miss some time

    Jan 21, 2014, 11:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    There haven’t been a lot of bright spots in the Celtics’ season, Avery Bradley has been one of them — healthy in his fourth NBA season he has broken out to average 14.8 points a game, shoot 36.5 percent from three and as always be a pesky, impressive defender on the perimeter. But now he…
