George Karl said that Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison could play together because Rondo is a "pass-first point guard."
"My feeling is that [Rondo’s] a pass-first point guard, which I think is important and I think in the end it really excites me," Karl said of Rondo and Collison sharing the floor. "We have two guys who can take control of the team and play together and keep the pace of the game. We can play with a lot of freedom and creativity but also play without turnovers." Collison is expected to ready for the start of the season after his 2014-15 campaign was cut short after undergoing core muscle surgery, but the arrival of Rondo really limits his upside. It's great that Collison could see some time next to Rondo, but he is a late-round flier at best while he is coming off the bench. Aug 9 - 11:05 AM
