Rumors of Rajon Rondo's departure from Boston have been swirling since Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry left the Celtics during the offseason. As part of the team's rebuilding effort, it was thought that the franchise could cut a significant portion of its payroll by sending Rondo elsewhere. But since the squad has gone 8-4 over its last 12 contests, trade talks were seemingly slowed as Boston moved up to fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.
NBCSN basketball analyst Donny Marshall, however, says the Celtics have major deal in the works that will eventually send Rondo to the Kings. In a discussion with Dave Briggs (@davebriggstv) on SportsDash, Marshall cited "the people [he talks] to" and said that the four-time All-Star point guard - along with multiple Celtics teammates - will be headed out west in a blockbuster.
