Playing GM: What should the Celtics do?
Option: Trade Rajon Rondo
The Celtics could move the 26-year-old All-Star and his team-friendly contract to a team in need of a point guard (the Lakers could be a good fit). Rondo has real value, and he might bring back more talent than any other Celtic in a potential deal. Of course, the Celtics could also choose to build around Rondo and let others go, adding younger pieces who might be better able to run the floor with the speedy Rondo.
An ESPN report indicates the Celtics are actively shopping Rondo, while Danny Ainge has said he's only listening for deals that would help the team. It's semantics.
