Could Rajon Rondo be on the Trading Block in Boston?

Before last season, the Boston Celtics were arguably the most dominant and complete team in the Eastern Conference. With the Big Three of Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett still intact and point guard Rajon Rondo getting better every single season, the Boston Celtics were considered to be a legitimate NBA title contender once again, but after a mid-season trade sent center Kendrick Perkins to the Oklahoma City Thunder, this team was never the same.

After basically being dominated in the NBA playoffs by the NBA Finals bound Miami Heat, the Boston Celtics were obviously flawed and in desperate need of new blood. There no is telling what will happen with this veteran squad before next season, but a recent rumor has the Boston Celtics considering a trade for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo.

Over the last year or so, Rajon Rondo has been considered to be the new face of the franchise and the future of this team. With that being said, Rondo was thought to be the one player on this team that was untouchable, but now that doesn’t appear to be the case as the Boston Celtics would consider dealing their promising young point guard for the “right big offer” from another team.

These days the point guard position in the NBA is a vital one and a key to success for teams around the league. Obviously, this hasn’t been the case for the last few NBA champions as the Los Angeles Lakers don’t have a dominant point guard (Derek Fisher) and the Dallas Mavericks don’t either (38-year-old Jason Kidd), but that could quickly change with players coming into their own like Chris Paul (New Orleans Hornets), Deron Williams (New Jersey Nets), John Wall (Washington Wizards) and reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls).
