Rajon Rondo

  1. Brad Stevens talks in coachspeak, doesn’t have Rondo timeline

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens sat down with Comcast Sportsnet New England and said… not much of consequence. A lot of coachspeak. There was another non-update on a Rajon Rondo timeline. “He’s been very diligent when he’s been in town. … A couple of young guys came into the gym and just having him here…

  2. Coach Brad Stevens refuses to put timeline on Rondo’s return

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    When is Rajon Rondo going to be ready to play for Boston? Danny Ainge was hoping for opening night. Jared Sullinger hinted it could be more like December. New Celtics coach Brad Stevens is not going to play your game. At least publically. The Boston Herald tried to get him to say when Rondo would…

  3. Jared Sullinger on Rajon Rondo’s return: ‘Hopefully he’ll be back by December’

    Aug 25, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo suffered a torn ACL injury that prematurely ended his season last January, and while Celtics GM Danny Ainge has been eying an opening night return for this star point guard all along, the actual timetable may end up being a bit longer than that. Jared Sullinger, a teammate of Rondo’s who also had…

  4. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  5. Report: Celtics looking for assistant coach who can relate to Rondo

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rajon Rondo may ultimately develop a great relationship. However, it’s going to take work and time — they come from very different places. Rondo is understandably feeling some culture shock with Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all gone and an entire new coaching team and philosophy coming…

  6. Paul Pierce says there’s no question that Rajon Rondo can be ‘the man’ in Boston

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    The Celtics decided it was time to rebuild for the future this offseason, so they traded away Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. The team hung onto Rajon Rondo, however, and despite many teams lining up to try to steal the All-Star point guard away, Boston maintained all along that it had…

  7. Pierce says Rondo injury was first domino in Boston rebuild

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    It was back in January when any hope of the Boston Celtics as contenders was completely dashed — Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL and was done for the rest of the campaign. That was also the day the first domino fell that eventually led to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett being traded to the…

  8. Celtics great Robert Parish understands what it’s like to be Rajon Rondo

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    robert parish Bulls

    Rajon Rondo is a legitimate All-Star point guard, and the only elite level talent left on a Celtics roster that will be undergoing a full-fledged rebuild beginning next season. There are questions as to whether or not Boston will (or should) retain Rondo during this transition, because at some point, you need special players to…

  9. Report: Pistons still have interest in Rajon Rondo, even after acquiring Brandon Jennings

    Aug 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons were reportedly one of the first teams in line to talk with the Celtics about a potential deal for Rajon Rondo, once Boston entered a full-fledged rebuild by sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. Whether due to the offers being low while Rondo still rehabs from a torn ACL injury,…

  10. Suns plan to play Bledsoe, Dragic at same time in backcourt

    Jul 30, 2013, 5:56 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    One of the shifting attitudes around the NBA is in regards to position — the size and skill of players today don’t fit neatly in the “point guard” or “power forward” molds of the past. How do you define the position of Dirk Nowitzki, or LeBron James, or Kevin Durant. As teams work more into…

  11. Report: Bucks, Pistons agree to sign-and-trade for Brandon Jennings

    Jul 30, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    It looked like there were no suitors for Brandon Jennings — nobody made him a big free agent offer he expected (he wanted a Stephen Curry or larger deal) and now the only teams left on the market were not going to offer him one (Philadelphia, for example). But Pistons GM Joe Dumars and the…

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we like to debate In-n-Out vs. Five Guys (it’s In-n-Out, obviously)…. •…

  14. Reports: John Wall, Wizards near five year, $80 million deal

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    John Wall

    Would you give John Wall more than Stephen Curry got a couple years ago? More than Rajon Rondo? It’s certainly a risk, but the Wizards have their reasons and it looks like it is going to happen. The Wizards and Wall are close to a five-year, $80 million deal, something first reported by Marc Stein…

  15. Pistons Monroe brushes off trade rumors, says he doesn’t want change

    Jul 24, 2013, 10:13 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Detroit. Bringing in Josh Smith is a talent upgrade for the Pistons, a big one and an expensive one (four years, $56 million). But it’s also one that makes for some interesting matchups for new coach Mo Cheeks to deal with — Andre Drummond is the center…

  16. Pierce, Garnett talk Rondo’s adjustment to injury, very different team

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:55 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. The veteran leaders Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are long gone, which was already going to make this a strange season for Rondo — they have gone from a team that thought about titles to rebuilding. Add in the fact Rondo is coming back off…

  17. Celtics GM Ainge eyes opening night return for Rajon Rondo

    Jul 21, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is the last bit of star power remaining in the Celtics locker room, after the team decided to enter a full-fledged rebuild by trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. Rondo is not healthy, however, after undergoing surgery for a torn ACL injury he suffered in late January of last…

  18. Leandro Barbosa’s agent says he has offer from Mavericks

    Jul 20, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    Leandro Barbosa spend the first half of last season playing a limited role in Boston but he started to see a lot more minutes after Rajon Rondo tore his ACL — then Barbosa tore his ACL (and had some MCL damage). Which means he likely is not ready to play at the start of this…

  19. Wednesday Summer League Notes: Hawks may have something in Schroder

    Hawks Clippers Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Summer League entered the Tournament phase on Wednesday, which really didn’t feel any different yet than the rest of Summer League. Here is some stuff from my notebook… • Atlanta may have a steal getting German point guard Dennis Schroder at No. 17. He is 19 and the reports about his length…

  20. Joe Dumars denies Brandon Knight-for-Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings trade talks

    Jul 16, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons talking to the Celtics about trading Brandon Knight for Rajon Rondo or the Bucks about Brandon Jennings in general – not true, according to Joe Dumars. Via Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: “Never happened, never even a conversation about Brandon,” Dumars said of the Boston Globe report over the weekend. “And…

  21. Rajon Rondo: “I will never play for the Miami Heat”

    Jul 15, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is the guy left standing, at least for now, as the Boston Celtics tear apart their roster to rebuild. Paul Pierce is gone. Kevin Garnett is gone. The “big three” era is gone. More changes are coming. Rondo’s name has and will continue to come up in trade rumors this summer and into…

  22. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  23. Report: Carmelo Anthony wanted Knicks to go after Rondo

    Jul 10, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Carmelo Anthony gets it. He looks at the Knicks roster — which won 54 games and got to the second round of the playoffs — and realizes they don’t have enough. Not with the Heat still out there, with Indiana getting better, the Bulls getting Derrick Rose back, even the Brooklyn Nets getting better with…

  24. NBA’s amnesty window open, here are three candidates to watch

    Jul 10, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The NBA’s amnesty window is open — from now until July 16, teams that haven’t used their one-time amnesty provision since the lockout can wipe one contract off the official books, so long as that is a contract they signed before the lockout. Which means there are only 13 teams and 34 total players where…

  25. Larry Brown talks difference between being NBA and college coach

    Jul 10, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    Brad Stevens is the latest. Before him is a long line of college coaches who tried their hands at the NBA game — and the picture isn’t pretty. Far more failure than success. Larry Brown is an exception. He is the lone coach to win an NBA championship (2004 Pistons) and an NCAA tournament title…
