Nothing like a little trade report at the end of August to shake things up on the Rajon Rondo front. This latest tidbit is from an edition of Around The Horn on Wednesday afternoon. On the preshow, Jackie MacMullan and Frank Isola were discussing who would be the next star to be moved now that Kevin Love has been dealt. MacMullan, as was pointed out first by our friend Jay King over at MassLive.com, dropped a big nugget about Rondo’s wishes.
“Oh, I hope so,” MacMullan said of whether Rondo would be next to move. “Just get it done. And it will happen because [Rondo’s] told them he wants out. And no one believes me, but that’s the truth. I don’t see how you get 80 cents on the dollar for him. Tell me where.”
You can watch the full video clip after the jump. We’ll have plenty of more analysis on the impact of the rumor later today, but as you might imagine this might have a drastic impact on Boston’s rebuilding plans, if true.
