NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers And Celtics Discussed Gasol For Rondo

(SB Nation Los Angeles, Preston Clark)The Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo has been a subject of trade rumors. So has the Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol. It was only a matter of time before they ended up in the same rumor.

According to the Los Angeles Times' Mike Bresnahan, the Lakers and Celtics talked last week about a Rondo trade but the talks never materialized into anything substantial. The Lakers won't give up Gasol for Rondo and that would seem to be the only possible way of getting Rondo to switch from green and white to purple and gold.

Both players had their fingerprints on Sunday's 97-94 Lakers' win. Rondo had 24 points and 10 assists while Gasol put in 13 points and 13 rebounds.

Kobe Bryant can't wait for the trade deadline to finally pass so his teammates can just relax and play ball as told to the LA Times.

"I think it will have a great effect," Bryant said. "Guys can just go out and play instead of waking up and checking their phones all the time to make sure they didn't miss a call from their agent."
