Rajon Rondo

  1. One of the next big summer questions: How big an extension for John Wall?

    Jul 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    John Wall

    Agent Dan Fegan has been a tad busy at the start of free agency, what with being one of the agents and key advisors to Dwight Howard and all. But now that is basically done and Fegan can move on to another client and one of the other interesting questions of the NBA Summer: What…

  2. Brad Stevens talks Rondo, Celtics at press conference (VIDEO)

    Jul 5, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

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

    The book is obviously still out on Brad Stevens the NBA coach, but Brad Stevens the guy at his introductory press conference is pretty impressive. Above is the video from Steven’s press conference introducing him as the new Celtics head coach, with plenty of Danny Ainge talking about the move as well. Here are a…

  3. Report: Rondo open minded to Brad Stevens… if he gets the chance to work with him

    Jul 5, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Introduce Brad Stevens

    Let us for a second ignore the elephant in the room — that the Boston Celtics very well may trade Rajon Rondo. We all know that could well happen. That despite the report from our own A. Sherod Blakely of CSNNE.com that Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck said he wants to rebuild with newly hired coach…

  4. Brad Stevens was a smart hire for Boston… if they really are rebuilding

    Jul 3, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Brad Stevens

    I like this hire. Boston made a smart move. Brad Stevens was a coach on the rise, something a lot of people recognized around basketball. He used the principles of advanced statistics and a focus on defense to win at least 22 games a year at Butler and become one of the hottest coaches in…

  5. Celtics GM Ainge says team ‘has no intentions’ of trading Rajon Rondo

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jose Calderon

    When the Celtics sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets for loose parts and future draft choices, the team made the decision to begin the long, arduous rebuilding process perhaps a season or two before it was truly necessary. The one star-level player remaining on the roster in Boston is point guard Rajon…

  6. Celtics GM Danny Ainge: “We are not tanking”

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Define tanking. How you choose to do that will determine if you think the Boston Celtics are tanking. They certainly are rebuilding after they shipped out Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn for a package of three first round picks, the talented young MarShon Brooks, and the anchor contracts of Kris Humphries (one year,…

  7. Report: Celtics and Mavericks have talked trade for Rajon Rondo

    Jun 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    A report surfaced on Saturday that the Celtics and Mavericks had engaged in trade talks for the one remaining All-Star asset in Boston, Rajon Rondo. It didn’t come from one of the usual suspects in terms of reporters we’re used to seeing break this kind of news, but a report from DallasBasketball.com is always credible.…

  8. Doc Rivers talks exit from Celtics, Rondo, new look Nets (VIDEO)

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    It became one of the talking points of the NBA Draft broadcast — ESPN’s Bill Simmons (a Celtics fan) said Doc Rivers quit on Boston, so when Rivers was asked about that on the broadcast his response was, “I would like to call him an idiot but I’m too classy for that.” Rivers was on…

  9. Report: Garnett signs off on trade that would send him, Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #2 10:56 PM: Kevin Garnett will agree to waive his no-trade clause, clearing a major hurdle for the deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. That makes this deal far more likely. It is not finalized yet, and can’t be officially executed until July 10, but the teams are working to get the…

    Top prospects pose together with NBA Commissioner David Stern for a group picture before the start of the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn,  New York

    The time for rumors, smokescreens and agents pumping up clients is gone — NBA teams are on the clock. The 2013 NBA Draft is here. In this post we will update you with every pick, telling you a little about the player your team just selected. We’ll also keep you up to date with all…

  11. Report: If Boston can move Pierce for pick they will go after Josh Smith. Really?

    Jun 25, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Josh Smith is part of a rebuilding plan? Josh Smith and Rajon Rondo on the same team together? It doesn’t make a lot of sense if the plan is to rebuild a championship team — unless you think you can do that around guys with shaky jump shots — but the report from Sean Deveney…

  12. With Rivers deal complete, NBA unlikely to approve a subsequent trade involving Kevin Garnett and the Clippers

    Jun 23, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce talk over a play in the fourth quarter against the New York Knicks in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    Now that the Celtics and the Clippers have finally reached an agreement that will see Doc Rivers patrolling the sidelines in Los Angeles next season, the questions in Boston now turn to the futures of both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett was originally included as part of the package for Rivers, before commissioner David…

  13. Report: Clippers, Celtics trying to work out Garnett trade league will approve

    Jun 20, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett and head coach Rivers react to a foul called on Garnett in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    UPDATE 1:50 pm: The Clippers and Celtics are actively talking about the trade on Thursday, but now they have a new issue — one that will pass muster with the league. You cannot trade for a coach. You cannot have side deals or contingencies as part of a trade. There are some precedents of compensation…

  14. LeBron James gets another triple-double, now favorite for Finals MVP

    Jun 19, 2013, 4:35 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    You’ll have to excuses ESPN for not mentioning LeBron James achieving a triple-double during the Heat’s 103-100 win over the Spurs until Game 6 ended. LeBron grabbed his 10th rebound – capping a 32-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound, three-steal game – on Chris Bosh’s block of Tony Parker’s jumper with 31 seconds left, setting off a whirlwind…

  15. Celtics stuck in limbo without Clippers trade

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    If the Celtics-Clippers trade is indeed dead – and like Kurt, I have my doubts – the offseason doesn’t get any easier for the Celtics. Boston is obviously ready to move on from Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers, at least if it nets a certain combination of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and first-round picks and…

  16. Even Spurs see Wade not right; Wade says Heat “big 3” have to step up

    Jun 12, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    dwyane wade

    It’s been obvious to you and me, you think the Spurs missed it? Dwyane Wade isn’t as explosive and dangerous as normal, the bone bruise in his knee is holding him back. “You can tell something’s not right,” San Antonio’s Danny Green said at practice Wednesday, and he’s the guy who has spent a lot…

  17. Rajon Rondo admits he’s not easy to coach

    Jun 11, 2013, 1:43 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers gestures to Rajon Rondo in the second quarter as the Celtics play the Miami Heat during Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida

    Rajon Rondo is really good at Connect 4. Seriously. He showed that skill off in an interview put together by Red Bull. He also knows that he is not the easiest guy in the world to coach. When asked if he was hard to coach when he came into the league he owned up to…

  18. Doc Rivers finally speaks on chances of return, but only to say ‘I’d rather not say’

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    Kevin Garnett might retire. Paul Pierce’s contract is only partially guaranteed for next season. Who knows when Rajon Rondo will return to full health? The Celtics have plenty of question marks headed into next season. Meanwhile, Doc Rivers had been lying low. He’s finally spoken publically about his future with the Celtics, but he didn’t…

  19. Tony Parker not the NBA’s best point guard, but a darn good one in the NBA Finals

    Jun 7, 2013, 2:47 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 1

    When Tony Parker won NBA Finals MVP in 2007, it caught many off guard. Tim Duncan won Finals MVP for the Spurs’ first three titles, and he was still an All-NBA first-team player during the 2006-07 regular season. A major of ESPN writers surveyed before Game 4 of San Antonio’s sweep over the Cavaliers chose…

  20. LeBron James gets triple-double in Game 1 of NBA Finals

    Jun 6, 2013, 11:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    LeBron James entered the fourth quarter of Game 1 of the NBA Finals one assist shy of a triple-double, and he got it about five minutes into the period. LeBron – who now has 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in this game – now has the last three triple-doubles in the NBA Finals,…

  21. Report: Celtics tried to land Jefferson or Millsap at trade deadline

    May 31, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    There has been buzz that Utah Jazz free agent Paul Millsap is the top off-season target of Danny Ainge and the Celtics. They certainly need help along the front line and Millsap would fit in that way. It’s just that the money thing makes it far more complex. But apparently Ainge was trying to land…

  22. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…

  23. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  24. Dennis Schroeder bows out of combine in Chicago, plans on skipping Eurocamp due to likely draft promise

    May 18, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    dennis schroeder

    Dennis Schroeder is an international prospect from Germany that has been rapidly moving up draft boards. The 19-year old point guard is listed at 6’2″ with a 6’7.25″ wingspan, and the speed and flair with which he plays is already eliciting comparisons to Rajon Rondo in terms of ability, body type, and style. Schroeder was…

  25. It’s official: Doc Rivers will return as Celtics coach

    May 16, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    Was there really any doubt? You didn’t really buy into the insane notion he would leave the Celtics to coach the Clippers, did you? Doc Rivers will be back to coach the Boston Celtics next season. GM Danny Ainge confirmed that to Gary Washburn the Boston Globe (via A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com) A league…
