Best Trade Destinations for Rajon Rondo After Marcus Smart Pick
- Updated: June 27, 2014
With the 6th overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft the Boston Celtics selected Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart. Had Smart entered the draft last year as a freshman, he would’ve most likely been selected 1st overall. Smart is a point guard by nature but could play shooting guard in the NBA. Smart is a very talented scorer who put up big numbers in college. The bigger storyline is what happens now to Rajon Rondo? A trade could be in the works to get the all-star point guard out of Boston. Wasn’t it just a few years ago that the Big 3 disassembled to make Boston Rondo’s team? So if the Celtics are really interested in trading Rondo, what are the best destinations for him?
3. Houston Rockets
Why: Houston is always looking to make a big splash and need point guard help, by getting rid of Omer Asik the Rockets cleared more cap room that could see them land a big name player such as Rondo.
Current PGs: Jeremy Lin, Patrick Beverley
