Celtics deal Rondo to Mavs

The Boston Celtics traded All-Star Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks in a deal involving four other players and two draft picks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Rondo will go to Dallas with Dwight Powell in exchange for Mavericks Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson, a 2015 first-round draft pick and a future second-rounder, sources told Yahoo.

Rondo has made it clear to the Mavericks that he’s willing to sign a contract extension this summer, league sources said. He’ll become an unrestricted free agent in July.

The Houston Rockets dropped out of the Rondo trade talks Thursday evening, clearing the way for the Celtics to strike a deal with the Mavericks, sources told Yahoo.

The Mavs and Celtics will take part in a trade call with the NBA office on Thursday night to formalize the deal.
