The Mavericks answer the wrong question by trading for Rajon Rondo

Last night, the Celtics agreed to trade nine-year veteran Rajon Rondo and someone named Dwight Powell to the Mavericks in exchange for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson, a first round pick, and their 2016 second round pick. The first round pick falls to Boston if the Mavericks pick between 4-14 in 2015 and if not, the Celtics receive the Mavericks pick as long as it is not a top 7 pick. The Celtics are fully committed to their rebuild and have a shit ton of draft picks in the upcoming years. This post is going to focus on the Mavericks and why they would want Rajon Rondo.
