Reports: Mavericks interested in trading for Rajon Rondo

According to multiple reports, the Mavericks have contacted the Celtics [1] about possibly trading for Rajon Rondo [2].

Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski writes [3] that the Mavericks would “love having Rajon Rondo to chase (free agent) Dwight Howard [4]” but Dallas would require the Celtics to take multiple contracts off the Mavs’ books.

The Mavericks drafted Miami point guard Shane Larkin, whom the Celtics reportedly had interest in prior to the draft.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that despite Rondo’s ACL surgery, the Celtics’ asking price for the point guard remains steep. Rondo turns 28 in February.
