Cohen 8-Ball: Stars on the Trade Block?
Cohen’s Analysis: Rajon Rondo is out for the rest of the season with a partially torn ACL. We know how talented Rondo is, but with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce at the twilight of their careers, it’s win now or rebuild for the Celtics. If the mindset is winning now, Boston needs to deal him for an established veteran who can have an immediate impact (like Dwight Howard). If the objective is more of a renovation, the C’s should keep him and trade KG (if he waives his no-trade clause) and Pierce. If Boston can land Eric Bledsoe from the Clippers, however, then perhaps it’s a complete overhaul and the C’s should deal all three.
