Report: Detroit still Targeting Rondo Despite Jennings Signing
Common perception was that Detroit had their roster set after acquiring Brandon Jennings via sign-and-trade with Milwaukee. Well, it looks like we were wrong.
CBS Sports is reporting (via The Boston Globe) that Detroit is still expressing interest in the 4-time All-Star.
Just because the Pistons acquired Brandon Jennings in a sign-and-trade deal with the Bucks doesn’t mean they’ve lost interest in Rajon Rondo. In fact, they could eventually use Jennings as a trade chip and seek to acquire Rondo. There are going to be several interested parties in Rondo, and that number could increase when he shows he’s fully recovered from anterior cruciate ligament surgery.
Now it’s all starting to make sense. Is Detroit just using Jennings as a trade piece to reel in Rondo?
