The Nets are really the only team that presents an obvious good fit for Rondo at this point. He can tell a young and rebuilding roster what to do, absorb all of the usage he is going to demand anyway and the Nets can tank for draft picks. Oh … wait … nevermind ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. There is a large contingent of Kings fans that hopes the Nets pull the trigger on this deal and save the team from itself.
Update: The New York Post writes that Rondo “is believed to favor a return to a major market.” The story goes on to quote DeMarcus Cousins at a Team USA event as saying “I respect him as a man, but he knows where my heart is … I’d love to have him back.” It’s hard to know what Cousins meant in a print quote, but that almost sounds like Cousins may be resigned to the fact Rondo is choosing the Nets. The Kings dodge a huge bullet here if the Rondo continues to trend toward the Nets.
