Rondo trade 80% chance to kings

4

Tyler Spence, the host of a sports talk radio show, said on Twitter that a source has confirmed that there is an "80 percent chance" Rajon Rondo is traded to the Kings in a deal that would send Ben McLemore and Derrick Williams to the Celtics. This is obviously not a done deal and we'd like to see it confirmed by a source we're more familiar with. Like most trade rumors, this one should be taken with a grain of salt. Having said that, Rondo's name has constantly been in trade rumors for a year now and it does appear that the Kings have a decent shot at getting a deal done. This would be devastating news for Darren Collison, who has already been named the opening-night starter for the Kings, but again, we're just considering it a rumor at this point.

Love’s sighting in Boston over the weekend has undoubtedly spawned a lot of intrigue among hoops denizens. One source, for example, has said that the Boston deal is "pretty much done," and that the Celtics really intend to pair off Love and Celtics captain Rajon Rondo with New York’s Carmelo Anthony, an impending free agent himself, to form a lethal triumvirate that would rival the Heat’s own Big Three. The source, an insider at RealGM.com, said, "The Love deal is pretty much done. I think the fact that Kevin Love is so out and about in Boston is something that Danny wants out there so he can show someone like Melo that he means business. The Melo thing is the one that is on the hush. Melo is the primary target. They need a scorer from the wing position. Cs need to get Love first in order to work one (with) Melo. That’s why Kevin Love is in town, he knows he is headed to Boston. Love is a done deal, the focus now is Melo. He was the primary target. Love opting in on his final year allows the Cs to sign Melo to a long-term deal first. Then work on a team-friendly deal with Rondo and then take care of Kevin. Also, could Tyson Chandler be dealt to Boston?" The same source revealed that the Boston trip is, in fact, something that was planned with Rondo. "Hearing Rondo and Love talked 11 days ago regarding this trip, on the phone, and that Rondo and him have maintained regular correspondence for the past 27 days," the source said.
