The Boston Celtics have made a trade decision for their star player Rajon Rondo. They are going to be trading him to the Dallas Mavericks. In exchange for this one player, the Celtics will be receiving three players and some draft picks. That is something that the Celtics hope to use to build a stronger team going forward. However, not everyone is convinced.
ESPN.com reports that the Celtics will be receiving a first round draft pick from the Mavericks in 2015 and a second round pick in 2016 and some financial exceptions from the league in order to be able to use their picks and give them the salaries they are going to require.
So far this season, the Mavericks are already off to a pretty good start. They have managed to go 19-8 in their first 27 games, but they have a tough schedule ahead. Surely having Rondo on the team will help build their confidence and their abilities to take on the opponents that they have remaining on the schedule. Some are saying that it may even guarantee them a playoff spot this year and perhaps even a run for the title. That part is still yet to be seen, but there are more than a few people who are saying that the Mavericks could now be one of the teams to beat this year and beyond. Mavericks fan and sports photography enthusiast Terry Richardson say there is no question that Rondo is an All Star player.
