Rumor: Pistons still interested in Rajon Rondo in the future

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

The latest rumor that won't go away...

I'm pretty tired of this rumor so I'm going to submit this mostly without a comment.

Just because the Pistons acquired Brandon Jennings in a sign-and-trade deal with the Bucks doesn’t mean they’ve lost interest in Rajon Rondo. In fact, they could eventually use Jennings as a trade chip and seek to acquire Rondo. There are going to be several interested parties in Rondo, and that number could increase when he shows he’s fully recovered from anterior cruciate ligament surgery

Because of his recently-signed contract, Jennings can't be included in any trade until Dec. 15 at the earliest.That doesn't necessarily preclude a deal from happening at some point, but it does add another layer of difficulty. Also not helping the Piston's reported quest to acquire Rondo: they owe Charlotte a first-round pick of the Bobcats' choice at some point between now and 2016, and can't trade any first-rounders until that debt has been paid.

Here's my only comment. (exaggerated sigh)
