It reportedly will take a rather hefty offer to convince the Boston Celtics to part ways with Rajon Rondo. This one probably won’t get the job done.
The Los Angeles Lakers have offered the Celtics a package of point guard Steve Nash and “multiple draft picks” in exchange for Rondo, sources told ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne on Thursday.
Rondo obviously would help the flailing Lakers, but that return is … less than favorable, to say the least. Nash is basically retired — he’s 40 and hasn’t played all season — and L.A.’s upcoming crop of draft picks isn’t a particularly appealing one.
The Dallas Mavericks appeared to be the front-runners in the Rondo sweepstakes as of Thursday afternoon.
