After the rumors surfaced about the Golden State Warriors offering an intriguing trade package to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love, it may only be a matter of time before the superstar heads to the Bay Area.

With Golden State willing to add Klay Thompson in the deal, the Timberwolves could pull the trigger sometime between now and the NBA draft on June 26. If Love does head to Oakland, the Boston Celtics will likely trade Rajon Rondo in the near future, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:

If the Celtics cannot get Love, they are planning to continue with the longer and more methodical rebuilding process, a process that would likely see Rajon Rondo traded. (An NBA source said they would also have a taker for Jeff Green if they chose to move him.)

Over the past few years, in the midst of the Celtics’ decline, Rondo has been mentioned in numerous trade rumors. Although GM Danny Ainge has been reluctant to pull the trigger on a deal to send their star point guard elsewhere, now may be the time to do so with his trade value likely not getting any higher than it is right now.

Rondo will almost certainly garner considerable interest on the trade market with plenty of teams needing a floor general of his caliber. The Los Angeles Lakers could be one of those teams if unable to get a promising young point guard like Marcus Smart on draft day.

Another option for the Celtics could be sending Rondo to the Houston Rockets. If Houston can’t reel in LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony this summer, the team might go after Rondo in an effort to place him alongside James Harden in the backcourt.

With all the trade rumors that have circulated over the past few years involving Rondo, the writing might be on the wall in Boston. It could be only a matter of time before the four-time All-Star is sent packing with the prospect of making another Big 3 elsewhere.
