The Mavericks have emerged as the frontrunners for Rajon Rondo and could offer at least one first-round pick along with Brandan Wright to get him.
The Rondo rumors are flying around from all different angles, so it's sounding like a deal could be in the works. There is nothing imminent, but Rondo owners can probably start assuming he's headed to Dallas at some point -- Jameer Nelson did not score tonight. The Kings, Knicks and Rockets are also in the mix, though. Stashing Marcus Smart is making more sense right now. Dec 17 - 11:25 PM

Rajon Rondo hit 6-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, seven rebounds, 15 assists and two steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Magic.

Trade rumors are swirling, with the Mavericks the newest team in the hunt for Rondo's services, and he's playing well again. It would appear that he'll likely be moved by the trade deadline, but for now, as long as he's starting for the Celtics, he should be starting for your team.

The Mavericks and Rockets are interested in trading for Rajon Rondo.

Both teams make plenty of sense with Dallas as a much better fit. The Rockets have James Harden as their maestro while Patrick Beverley is a near perfect fit for his defense and improved shooting. Dallas also has Monta Ellis, so it's not like they're a tremendous fit either. Rondo would lose some fantasy value with a move. If you're in a deep league, it makes some sense to stash Marcus Smart (Achilles).

The Boston Celtics "are exhibiting a renewed willingness" to pursue trade packages that include Rajon Rondo, according to Yahoo! Sports.

According to the report, league officials have said the asking price is "pretty high, probably higher than most want to pay," which is fairly obvious because there is no deal in place. The Celtics are looking to get a draft pick, so Marcus Smart would likely be their future point guard. Owners in deep leagues should consider stashing Smart while Phil Pressey and Evan Turner would also gain value. Rondo's value probably wouldn't change too much and he remains a No. 2 fantasy point guard who is better suited for points leagues.

Rajon Rondo's left hand is no longer an issue.

Rondo's left hand is the one he previously injured, so it's good news it's not an issue. However, the piont guard has struggled scoring the ball this season, as he's got just six games of 10 points or more. While Rondo's scoring and shooting (39.5 percent) have struggled, he is averaging 8.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 10.8 assists and 1.6 steals. His 32.4 percent clip from the foul line is atrocious, but he's only taking 1.7 attempts per game.
Dec 15 - 11:04 AM

Rajon Rondo admitted that he needed to be more aggressive in Friday's loss to the Pistons in which he scored just two points in 32 minutes.

It wasn't all bad news for him, as he was still able to contribute 10 assists, seven rebounds and one steal. "Yes, I do [have to be more aggressive]," he said. "I was trying to take what the defense gave us tonight, get in our sets, but we have to find a way to get stops. When you play against a set defense, you call plays and I try to get us into the offensive flow." If Rondo can find a way to score more efficiently and hit his free throws, he will become an elite fantasy asset. For now, owners have to be satisfied with the fact that he is going to be a triple-double threat every time he takes the floor, so there is not a lot to complain about here.
Dec 13 - 9:32 AM

Rajon Rondo is not concerned with the individual criticism he's received for the Celtics' fourth quarter struggles this season.

"It doesn’t matter to me," said Rondo. "I’ve been here longest, I’m the team captain, and I’m the point guard, so, just like in football, in the beginning they blamed [quarterback Tom] Brady a lot [when the New England Patriots struggled]. It’s part of it. It’s not weighing on me at all." Rondo has struggled late in games this year, and he currently boasts a plus/minus rating of minus-47 during the fourth quarter. He is, however, leading the league in assists and triple-doubles, so as per usual with Rondo, owners will need to take the good with the bad.

Rajon Rondo triple-doubled against the Hornets on Wednesday with 12 points, 10 boards, 10 assists, one steal and four turnovers.

He even made 6-of-11 from the field in the loss. There was obviously nothing to worry about after his benching on Monday, but a nice game certainly solidifies it even more. Rondo and the Celtics are 3-7 over their last 10, but Rondo will be putting up his points, boards and dimes as long as he's in the lineup.
Dec 10 - 10:34 PM

Rajon Rondo said he wasn't upset that Celtics head coach Brad Stevens kept him on the bench for the final quarter and both overtimes during Monday's loss to the Wizards.

Rondo joined Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger on the bench for the final stretch of Monday's loss, while Jeff Green was the only Celtics starter who played more than 23 minutes. "I'm very competitive," Rondo said. "I wanted to play. I wanted to compete and be on the floor. But the guys in front of me, the guys who were out there, were playing great. And I didn't want to mess up any momentum." Fantasy owners will have to chalk this up to a game flow anomaly as Rondo should see his usual 30-plus minutes when the Celtics visit the Hornets on Wednesday.
Dec 9 - 9:38 AM

Rajon Rondo scored zero points on 0-for-3 shooting with two rebounds, four assists and a steal over 21 minutes in the Celtics' double-overtime loss to the Wizards on Monday.

Ouch. Outside of Jeff Green no starter played more than 23 minutes and owners can roll this game up into a ball and throw it into the circular file. Jared Sullinger (five points, five boards, one steal, one block) and Avery Bradley (seven points, one three, one steal) joined Rondo on the wrong side of the ledger.
Dec 9 - 12:32 AM

Rajon Rondo put up a triple-double against the Wizards during a 101-93 win on Sunday with 13 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

He made 5-of-17 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line to make this a typical Rondo game. He's leading the NBA in assists per game and also leads all guards in rebounds per games, so the stats are offsetting his horrible shooting. He'll get a rematch against John Wall and Co. on Monday.
Dec 7 - 4:53 PM

The Lakers will reportedly make a push to sign Rajon Rondo as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Kobe Bryant and Rondo made headlines on Thursday by having breakfast together, but the breakfast was nothing more than that. Bryant enjoys Rondo's company, and has made it clear in the past that he's a fan of Rondo's play, telling ESPNBoston back in 2013: "You don't want Rondo? Send him my way. I love everything about him." However, the Lakers are unlikely to sacrifice a draft pick in order to trade for Rondo this season, so nothing appears to be imminent at the moment.

Dec 5 - 9:41 AM

Rajon Rondo said he's looking for a better rhythm as he feels like he hasn't been as aggressive lately.

Rondo's scoring has taken a dip recently as he's averaging 5.4 points over his last five games and just 8.3 points per game on the season. "I’ve not been myself," Rondo said after the Celtics' win on Wednesday. "I haven’t been as aggressive. I haven’t been making shots. I’ve been turning the ball over. So, like I said, a lot of those losses I put on myself, and I’ve got to find a better rhythm." Rondo is a fantasy asset for his assist potential, but his lack of scoring will limit his top 50 potential.

Dec 4 - 9:26 AM

Rajon Rondo said following Wednesday's win against the Pistons that he hasn't been playing like himself lately.

He didn't play in the big possessions down the stretch in favor of Evan Turner. Rondo made just 1-of-6 from the field for two points with three rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 34 minutes. He's going to have a tough time getting inside of the top 60 for fantasy value with such inefficient scoring.
Dec 3 - 11:21 PM

Rajon Rondo scored only two points vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, but he grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out a season-high 19 assists as the Celtics blew a big lead in Atlanta.

Rondo added one steal and one block but his line was flawed, as he shot just 1-of-8 from the field and turned the ball over seven times. The gaudy rebounds and assists take the sting out of his limited scoring -- he's averaging just 9.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting this season, and his ridiculous 9-of-30 FT shooting is a huge drag in roto leagues.
