Rajon Rondo

  1. 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…

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

    Jul 18, 2013, 1:27 AM EDT

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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.…

  16. 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…

  17. 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

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
