The NBA trade deadline is still a few days away but there is already plenty of speculation surrounding those who could soon be dealt by their teams.

One star who could find himself on a different roster after the February 20th deadline is Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics.

Rondo has recently returned from ACL surgery but has already become a productive member of a struggling Celtics team with nine points, five rebounds and four assists per game this season.

The New York Knicks are reportedly interested in Rondo although the Celtics will only listen to overwhelming offers.

The Knicks could certainly do with some productive assistance in the second half of the season as they currently sit three games out of the eighth seed in the eastern conference. There has been some speculation that coach, Mike Woodson could be fired and that star forward, Carmelo Anthony will leave in free agency.

It is unclear whether Anthony would stay if the Knicks could acquire Rondo and a few other productive players for next season but the Celtics guard would be a good short time acquisition regardless.

One problem with the trade is that New York are unlikely to be able to give up the draft picks that the Celtics would like because Denver hold their 2014 first rounder in the Anthony trade from 2011.

Rajon Rondo is definitely one to watch as the trade deadline approaches.
