Over the last couple of months there have been numerous reports referring to the Sacramento Kings having interest in the Boston Celtics former All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo. As free agency opens up, and the real roster reshaping season kicks off in the NBA, is there any real possibility of a deal coming to fruition?

Starting from the Kings’ point of view, it’s easy to see why Sacramento would be interested in the 28-year-old’s services. Isaiah Thomas, the man who did such a stellar job at the helm of the Kings’ backcourt last season, is now a restricted free agent.

Although the team would like to bring Thomas back, his free agency presents the perfect opportunity to pursue all avenues at point guard.

If Thomas was to receive an offer that the Kings felt was more than they were prepared to match, or if they simply wanted to explore another option, Rondo would be a logical alternative.

The Kings have a number of options in terms of deals they could offer the Celtics. Just one example of this would be, to send Ben McLemore, Carl Landry and a future second-rounder to the Celtics.

Although there would be kinks to work out, a deal like that could provide the Celtics with improved backcourt offense, greater depth, and more cap room.

So, let’s take a look at four reasons why this deal is a genuine possibility, and why the Kings would want to make it happen.
