Doc Rivers not surprised Celtics traded PG Rajon Rondo


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/29/2015) Former Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was not surprised when point guard Rajon Rondo was traded to the Mavericks earlier this season, according to Boston.com.

Rivers coached Rondo for seven seasons before stepping down and taking over the Clippers in 2013.

"I didn’t know [if Rondo was going to be part of Boston's future]," Rivers said. "I think at the end of the day, it was more of a Rajon decision, in my opinion ... it was more his decision than [team president Danny Ainge) and the Celtics' staff."

The Celtics acquired forwards Jae Crowder and Brandan Wright, guard Jameer Nelson and a pair of future draft picks in the trade with the Mavs.

"I just think you get a feel for whether [Rondo] wanted to play it out [in Boston] or not, and when you're rebuilding you can't take that gamble of letting an asset out of the door and letting him become a free agent," Rivers said.


Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo gets on same page with Rick Carlisle


by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo credits improved communications with coach Rick Carlisle in making him more comfortable in the team’s system, per MavsMoneyBall.com.

"I've been studying with coach a lot. He called me in before the game and gave me a little test, and I think I continue to pass the test. We're on the same page a lot more throughout the game. I'm calling some of the plays before he calls them, so we're on the same page,”
Rondo said.

Rondo also said his involvement in the offense has increased due to his teammates' confidence. 

"What's different is they're giving me the ball a lot more on the break," he said. "I think I've earned these guys' confidence. They know when they're going to get the ball back. Obviously it's a miss-make league. (Chandler Parsons) has been playing unbelievable, shooting the ball extremely well. Dirk (Nowitzki) shot the lights out tonight. It has been a great effort."


Mavs' Rajon Rondo still open to returning next season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Despite a recent confrontation with coach Rick Carlisle, Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo said he is still considering re-signing with the team in the offseason, reports Yahoo Sports.

"It's a player's organization,” Rondo said. "Players first, from our plane, the way we travel. I don't take that for granted. We eat good. We stay at the best hotels. Of course, it's the NBA. But this organization has the best. They have PlayStation in the lockers. I don't play games, but it's nice to know I got a PlayStation."

Rondo will be a free agent after the season and added that he feels comfortable playing for the Mavericks and hopes to come to a decision soon.

"I love it here. I don't dislike anything," he said. "I'm not uncomfortable. Of course, the system is different, but I've been here for two months. It's going to take time. Hopefully, sooner rather than later."


Mavericks' Rajon Rondo: 'Everyone is pretty much on the same page'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rondo thinks communication led to the issue Monday.

"Communication is definitely key in this situation, and we've had a couple of talks since then and we're going to move forward."

Rondo is averaging 8.6 points and 8.3 assists in 47 games this season.

Celtics' Ainge on Rondo's heated exchange: 'None of it surprises me'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
