Pistons want Rondo

07:42 AM ET 01.20 | With Rajon Rondo's return comes more speculation about his future in Boston -- or not in Boston. And nobody believes Celtics head honcho Danny Ainge will hold onto point guard Rajon Rondo, who just returned after recovering from ACL surgery, at all costs. The Pistons have always been enamored with Rondo, the ultimate facilitator and competitor. And though Detroit has Brandon Jennings, he's not necessarily viewed as a long-term option at point guard. His contract is moveable and the Pistons didn't hesitate to trade Brandon Knight last offseason for an upgrade. What's to stop them from making another stair-step move? [Rodney Stuckey], like Charlie Villanueva, is on an expiring contract and the Pistons face the prospect of possibly losing him for nothing in the offseason, as he's an unrestricted free agent.

The pistons would have to give back Jennings, Drummond and take back Wallace's contract
I don't known if the Celtics would want Monroe as he is coming up for a payday

The raptors should want Rondo as well...

January 20, 2014  09:43 AM ET

I doubt this happens, might have to give up quite a bit more to land Rondo. It doesn't hurt to try though.

All this speculation, but the Celts have been saying they won't trade him and now have named him captain. Don't see a trade in the works.

LOL there is no way the pistons do that. The pistons send C.V. and/or R. Stucky, and B. jennings. So the celtics would have tons of cap space to go out and sign whoever they would want at the end of the season.

Why would the celts give up a top pg for just cap relief?
That's insane.
Rondo is a premium player in his prime

detroit easily tells the celts to take a hike asking for drummond and getting rid of wallace this year is gonna be hard to do.

January 20, 2014  05:07 PM ET

Given that the Celts just made Rondo captain, I don't think he is going to get traded.

January 20, 2014  05:26 PM ET

Joe Dumars would find a way to mess that up.

I seriously doubt Rondo would extend in Detroit. Who wants to play with Smith?

January 21, 2014  12:14 AM ET

LOL
