What Must Happen for Boston Celtics to Trade Rajon Rondo and Start Full Rebuild
David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports
There are plenty of scenarios in which Rondo isn't a Celtic by season's end.

The fact that Rajon Rondo is going to be involved in trade rumors is a simple fact of life at this point for fans of the Boston Celtics.

The major trade of his former co-horts to the Brooklyn Nets and an ACL injury have quieted those rumors for the better part of this last year, but they will arise again, either at the season’s outset, or after Rondo’s return.

Boston's star point guard will make $11.95 million this season and $12.91 million in 2014-15. Beyond that is up in the air at this point. If something happens over the next eight to 10 months to make Boston question offering a big extension, the chances of a trade increase.

The idea isn’t pleasant, unless a young All-Star is in the return package, nor is the prospect of multiple rebuilding years. If a Rondo trade could expedite that process, Celtics president Danny Ainge would pounce on it faster than a 98.5 Rick Pitino interview.
