What would Rajon Rondo's trade value be for Celtics?

Published Add your comment

Rajon Rondo could be traded before the NBA deadline for trades arrives on February 20th, according to reports.

But how much would Rondo be worth in a potential trade?

That's the question the general manager of Boston Celtics will be thinking and other GM's across the league.

Even though he has been injured for much of this season and didn't debut until this season until January, he's still worth a lot.

Lets not forget who Rondo is. He's a four-time NBA All-Star, and more importantly the Celtics man has been the NBA's assist leader for the past two seasons.

The New York Knicks are reported to be one of the teams that are interested in Rondo, although it would surely take an impressive offer.

So what does that offer need to be?

Celtics GM Danny Ainge will continue to do a good job off deflecting questions of any possible trade, but that's his job until something real comes along.

When completely healthy, Rondo acts as the perfect point guard that any play-off aspiring team would love to build their team around.

The only offer that would probably sound good to the Celtics is one that includes a first round pick for the 2014 NBA Draft.

It seems NBA fans agree that the Celtics should pick up draft picks if they trade Rondo. In a poll online that suggestion had 45.8% of the vote. Established star has 26.3%, 15.6% young, cheap players, and 12.3% was clear salary.
