In response to Eldunker's comment:
The turnaround in Rondo's rhetoric is good news IMO. Smart must be outplaying Rondo in training camp.
But now Rondo will be a sulking distracting cancer on the team until he's gone. Hopefully Danny can trade him ASAP and I'll be satisfied to get a mid-first round draft pick, an expiring contract, and a ham sandwich for the petulant, over-rated, no-shot, classless, little brat.
Bottom line is that Danny held his cards too long.
Not too many teams would trade for a player that was injured. When he was healthy the Cs still had KG and Pierce. When would you have traded him? I'm sure Ainge tried to trade him around the draft but there was no takers. You need two teams to make a trade. Very few need a PG that have cap space and none of those were willing to offer much. Which team would you have traded him to and what would you want in return?

My first choice: IND. Give me Hibbert and bunk him up with old friend Jeff Green. Throw in a filler like Bogans, Babb, Johnson to make it work. Watch out playoffs, here we come.
Second choice: HOU. They'd roll out the red carpet for Rajon. They'd give us picks and young talent. And, they're already a contender, so I doubt you'd hear any complaints from Mr. I Want To Be On A Big Market Contender.
