Dallas gets Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell
Bostons gets Brandon Wright, Jae Crawford and Jameer Nelson in addition to a conditional first round pick in 2015 and a second round pick in 2016. This trade also results in a $12.9 million trade exception for the C's.
So, while there really aren't any big names besides Rondo involved in this trade, I do like it. There are two main reasons why I like this trade.
Although I like Rondo a lot, I like this trade because it doesn't involve any of the other Celtic players who I enjoy watching. While we may have been able to get a lot more in return if we had included someone like Kelly Olynyk or Jared Sullinger, I'd rather keep them on the team and get little.
Although it is not one of my main reasons for liking this trade, I do like the fact that he is in Dallas playing for the Mavericks. Even though I don't have a favorite Western Conference team, the Mavs are one of the two Texas teams I have enjoyed watching over the years. In addition they are owned by my favorite owner Mark Cuban.
