[Guide] Today, a shocking news came from the Portland Celtics.
Their core All-Star point guard, Rajon Rondo, was sent to the Maine Red Claws of the Development League to find a feeling. Although Rondo has been able to resume training, he is in a mediocre state.
He goes to play in the NBDL, but it’s rare for a team boss to go there.
Rondo may be transferred to the Development League
Recently, “Boston Globe” reporter Gary Walsh revealed: “Celtics coach Stevens said that Rondo is very likely to go to the NBDL, and the team management is already discussing this matter.”
According to league regulations, in addition to developing and exercising potential players, the Development League can also assign a veteran of more than three years to recover and train, but the premise is that the transfer must be approved by the transfer player himself, otherwise it cannot be transferred, so it must be Rondo
If you are willing to go, the Celtics can do so.
Rondo has suffered a severe torn cruciate ligament in his knee at the beginning of the year, and has been out of action since the injury. There is no specific time for his return.
In the middle of this month, Rondo has been able to participate in the Celtics’ 5-on-5 confrontation training, but the effect is mediocre. In order to let him adapt to the rhythm of the game as soon as possible, the Celtics managers think that it may be better to let him go to the NBDL to participate in the game than to participate in the ball.
The team’s confrontation training has a better recovery effect.
If Rondo really goes to the Development League, he will not be cut, and the annual salary of 12 million US dollars this season will not be less. He has two years of contract with the Celtics, and his annual salary next year is 13 million.
Ten thousand U.S. dollars.
The outside world generally believes that one of the reasons why the Celtics will consider delegating Rondo is that they are very eager for next year’s high draft picks.
Angie has also publicly stated that their goal this season is not the playoffs, implying that the team has a bad plan, so they have kept Rondo in the dark and repeatedly postponed his comeback plan. Of course Rondo disagreed and practiced privately.
Before the start of this season, rumors of Rondo’s trade have been endless.
