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.

So Jeff, is there some kind of siren that sounds on the CelticsBlog Thursday at 3pm to signal the all clear?

I for one can't wait for this trade deadline to be over. Here's hoping we've got a team I recognize come tomorrow night...

Stephon Marbury is not walking through that door. Sam Cassell is not walking through that door. Fab Melo might walk into a door.

This was before the Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen era.. The Celtics were on the road in Golden State. And Pierce had a dunk on Baron Davis on a fast break that was one of the best dunks I've ever seen Pierce do. Unfortunately I cannot find a video of this anywhere. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Rondo has had a polarizing impact within the Celtics' locker room, and his relationships with teammates and coaches have fluctuated over the years. Allen and Rondo never had arguments this year, never got into it. In fact, one source said: "Ray mostly ignored him." After the season, Rivers tried his best to mend the relationship between Rondo and Allen – make it manageable on some level. And yet, as one source with direct knowledge of the coach’s efforts said, the relationship was "too far gone."
