It is finally over... The Rondo era is finally over in Beantown. What I am most surprised by is how long this took to be done. I mean this was one of the most dysfunctional working relationships in the NBA.
Rondo has always been talented, but he has fought so often with management that it was surprising he lasted being on the trade block this long. He lasted years! Literally, every year he was rumored to be "nearly" traded, but something always kept Ainge from pulling the trigger. Not this time. This time the Mavs offered just the right offer:
Future 1st Rounder
Future 2nd rounder
So was this enough? Seems like Ainge was lucky to get this package, considering EVERYONE knew Rondo was leaving at the end of the year. The true piece for the Celtics was Wright, who may or may not develop into a solid starter. Only time will tell if Ainge waited too long, though
