What would a holiday - or any day be, for that matter - without a Rajon Rondo trade rumor.
This one has the Celtics point guard becoming the go-between in a three-way deal with the Suns and Pacers that sends another point guard, Goran Dragic of Phoenix, to the Pacers, with Rondo heading to Phoenix.
Whispers are already out there, @ZachLowe_NBA, about Indy trying to pull in Boston to construct some sort of multi-team deal involving Rondo— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 3, 2014
Pacers have little on the fringes to entice Phoenix on Dragic.Their interest, per @ESPNSteinLine, might hint at bigger discussions.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) July 3, 2014
Could disgruntled Pacers center Roy Hibbert be headed to Boston as part of it?
One problem, reports Sean Deveney of the Sporting News: The Suns do not want to part with Dragic.
“No, no, no,” a source told Deveney. “Nothing to that. The team and Goran, they’re still committed to each other."
