“Anytime you have a chance to grab a top point guard in this league, you got to go for it.'' -- Dirk on Rondo

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle said there's a good chance Rajon Rondo will play Saturday against the #Spurs.

Dwain Price

It seemed like there was a different vibe at #Mavs practice today when they let the media in. That's what a player like Rajon Rono can do.

Charlie Villanueva

Welcome @Rajon Rondo to @Dallas Mavericks! Rajon is one the best in our @NBA league, savvy skills. More on my thoughts here: charlievillanueva.sportsblog.com/posts/1452985/…

Dwain Price

Asked if the #Mavs are now the team to beat out West, Dirk Nowitzki said no. And that they want to continue flying under the radar.

Kathryn Dunn

#RT to help send @Tyson Chandler to the All Star Game!

Earl K. Sneed

It's always an honor to be referred to as @newyscruggs' favorite Nupe. #achievement

Dwain Price

Jermaine O'Neal is one of the players the #Mavs are considering signing to back up Tyson Chandler.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on Rondo: "He's one of the smartest players there is on the court. He's a pass-first guy, so we should all enjoy playing with him."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk: "Anytime you have a chance to grab a top PG in this league, you've got to go for it. I think [Rondo] is a competitor. He's a warrior."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on Rondo: "We're going to tell him to do what he does, and that's make guys better. ... Get his teammates involved. Find me a lot."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk Nowitzki addresses the media after the Rajon Rondo trade. @ American Airlines Center instagram.com/p/wzKnEwNkoR/

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson Chandler on the trade: "I'm glad that this happened now. ... At the end of the year, it'll be like [Rondo] has been here for years."

Mark Followill

Carlisle post practice on possibly of Rondo playing tomorrow "We think he will but we're not sure"

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle says it's a "good chance" Rondo plays Saturday vs. the Spurs.

Jeff Caplan

Man, #Pelicans waive Gal Mekel? During Hanukkah? Gutless.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have a roster spot available. And they need to find a veteran backup for Tyson Chandler.

Mark Followill

There will be a press conference with Mavs brass & Rajon Rondo at 4:45 this afternoon. Surely to be carried by multiple media outlets

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have a press conference today at 4:45 p.m. for Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell at American Airlines Center.

Earl K. Sneed

Just sent out by the @Dallas Mavericks: Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell have a press conference scheduled at 4:45 p.m. CT this afternoon.

Earl K. Sneed

For those asking, Rajon Rondo is expected to arrive in Dallas this afternoon and take his physical before meeting with the media.

Dwain Price

As expected, Rajon Rondo is not at #Mavs practice this morning. The trade happened too late last night for that to occur.

Earl K. Sneed

It's ugly sweater day at the #Mavs office and @keishonthecheek is in the Christmas spirit. @ Dallas… instagram.com/p/wy_5_itknU/

Earl K. Sneed

The Jan. 2 matchup between the @Dallas Mavericks & Celtics will now be televised by @NBATV at 6:30 p.m. CT.

Jeff Caplan

For @FOXSports No. 6 TCU not disheartened by playoff process but emboldened to keep building a national brand ... foxsports.com/southwest/stor…

Earl K. Sneed

It's scary to think how many trailer threes Dirk will get with Rondo leading the break and Monta and Parsons running on the wings. Scary.

Mark Followill

Thank goodness TOR & CHI lost on final night last season, allowed Mavs to convey pick from Odom trade & be in position for move like this

Mark Followill

So good I read it twice RT @freedarko: Here are my thoughts on Rajon Rondo. Enjoy! gq.com/blogs/the-feed…

Dwain Price

The #Mavs-#Celtics game in Boston on Jan. 2 will now be televised nationally on NBA-TV. #Rondo

Earl K. Sneed

Inside Report: Addition of Rajon Rondo solidifies @DallasMavs' starting five mavs.com/addition-rajon…

Dwain Price

Dirk, Monta, Devin and Ledo are the only #Mavs holdovers from last year. They have 10 players who weren't on last year's roster.

Dwain Price

Since Jae Crowder didn't play that much and the #Mavs aren't high on draft picks, the big loss for Dallas was losing C/F Brandan Wright.

Dwain Price

Look for the #Mavs to receive more national TV games this season now that they have Rondo. The NBA loves to show the nation it's best teams.

Dwain Price

Rondo's 1st game back in Boston as a member of the #Mavs will be Jan. 2. Too early to tell if the Mavs will have a shootaround that day.

Dwain Price

In 5 of his 1st 6 games with the #Mavs, Rondo will go up against Parker, Teague, Bledsoe, Westbrook and Wall.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have a roster spot to add another player. But it probably won't be Ray Allen, who sparred with Rajon Rondo in Boston.

Dwain Price

“Rondo has championship experience. The last time he played with dangerous weapons he won a championship." -- TNT' Shaquille O'Neal

Dwain Price

“There’s no night off when you come into Dallas, meaning you don’t have an advantage.'' - TNT analyst Kenny Smith on Rondo joining the #Mavs

Dwain Price

TNT analyst Shaquille O'Neal on Rondo joining the #Mavs: “It’ll probably take him a week or two to get into the offense.''

Dwain Price

TNT's Grant Hill on the #Mavs: “I like this move right here. They’ve got the pieces. Their starting five, I’d put up against anybody."

Earl K. Sneed

And as expected, @Tyson Chandler makes #ShaqtinAFool for the shoe swat.

Dwain Price

"You're going to go to bed at 10 o'clock when you get to Dallas. There's no late-night movie.'' -- TNT analyst Kenny Smith on opposing PGs

Dwain Price

To prevent Tyson's minutes from running up, the #Mavs got to get something out of Greg Smith. Or out of newcomer Dwight Powell.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs haven't done well in the draft lately. So the 2 low picks to the #Celtics are no big deal.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs view Rajon Rondo in the same mold as Jason Kidd -- a pass-first point guard who also loves to rebound and defend.

Dwain Price

Rondo has 3 triple-doubles this yr. The other players in the NBA have combined for 7 triple-doubles, including 2 by Michael Carter-Williams.

Mark Followill

Outstanding piece from Boston angle on RR. RT @Paul Flannery: It was finally time for the Celtics to trade Rajon Rondo sbnation.com/nba/2014/12/18…

Earl K. Sneed

I broke down the Rajon Rondo addition to the @Dallas Mavericks with the guys from @120Sports. Check it out. 120sports.com/video/v1044597…

Dwain Price

Rondo is a beast as a defender and a passer. He can't shoot very well, but his basketball IQ is off the charts.

Jeff Caplan

BREAKING: All-Star Game will now be West Shirts vs West Skins.

Mark Followill

Excited to see how many times Rick Carlisle uses the word "resourceful" in the next few days when describing Rondo .

Jeff Caplan

Hey, whattya know, the Bucks are playing the Kings.

De'Janae

I can't wait to relax, go crazy, not stress and have bomb birthday weekend with my girls!...life will be perf

Rajon Rondo

I look forward to building something special in Dallas.

Rajon Rondo

Years w/ the Celtics, fans and city. The opportunity to play with guys like Dirk, Monta, Tyson and the young talent of Chandler is exciting

Rajon Rondo

They are some of the hardest working guys I have played with and I wish them the best. I've experienced my most successful and challenging

Rajon Rondo

And supportive fans in the league is unmatched. My teammates have shown nothing but heart the last couple of seasons.

Rajon Rondo

My time in Boston has meant so much. I've grown up with this city both as a basketball player and person. The love I have for the most loyal

Dwain Price

Monta Ellis was a guy with character before he came to Dallas, and it's working fine. Rondo also has some character issues.

Dwain Price

Triple-doubles the past two-plus seasons: Rondo 9, Durant 6, Noah 6, LeBron 5, Stephenson 5. Rondo missed 96 games the past 2 years (ACL).

Dwain Price

J.J. Barea is the lone #Mavs PG with a 10-plus assist game this yr when he had 11 on 11/13 vs. PHIL. Rondo has 13 games of 10-plus assists.

Jeff Caplan

Holy... didn't realize Durant had 30 of Thunder's 63 points in 1st half. Hope his ankle is OK. When's Nike gonna make those KD's in hi-top?

Jeff Caplan

Durant helped off after twisting right ankle. Leads to quiet end to insane half: Warriors 65, Thunder 63.

Jeff Caplan

OKC started on 30-13 run. GS answers with 47-22 run. Jesus.

Mark Followill

Trades aren't easy or else they'd happen more often. This has potential though to improve areas that need it. Excited to see what lies ahead

Mark Followill

Trades are part of the biz but its tough losing guys u know & like, good luck to B Wright, J Crowder & Nelson. Gonna miss "The Wright Stuff"

Jeff Caplan

72 points scored in 1st qtr Warriors-Thunder. Like a week's worth of 1st quarters in the East.

Jeff Caplan

Rondo might play for #Mavs on Saturday vs #Spurs. Bigger question is who will play for Spurs?

Dwain Price

The #Mavs are hopeful Rondo will be in uniform for Saturday's big home showdown against the world champion San Antonio Spurs.

Dwain Price

The first-round pick included in the Rondo deal is lottery protected through the top seven picks of next year's draft.

Jeff Caplan

As @PeasESPN suggested, the West might see reverse tanking w teams trying to avoid No. 1 seed and the #Thunder in 1st round.

Jeff Caplan

Warriors-Thunder could be a first-round series.

Jeff Caplan

Rondo's 28. RT @Tim MacMahon: Rondo will have to sacrifice for trade to be success. Think late-career Jason Kidd. es.pn/1Ay5pPF

Earl K. Sneed

Really going to miss my brothers and go-to guys when I needed a late-second interview, @bwright34 & @Jae Crowder. Wishing success to both.

Jeff Caplan

Best of luck in Beantown to @bwright34. Class act who got better each season in Dallas.

Jeff Caplan

Adjust? To teammates that can actually score? RT @espnmavsblog: Rondo must adapt to thrive with Mavs es.pn/1Ay5pPF

Jeff Caplan

BREAKING: This year's West All-Star team will consist of 11 point guards and 1 frontcourt player.

Jeff Caplan

Guess you can add Kobe to list of West PGs.

Dwain Price

Rondo, Curry, Paul, Wall, Conley, Lillard, Westbrook and Lawson are the NBA's top point guards.

Jeff Caplan

West PGs: GS: Curry Mem: Conley OK: W'brook SA: TP LAC: CP3 Dal: Rondo Por: Lillard NO: Holiday Phx: Dragic/Bledsoe Den: Lawson Min: Rubio

Dwain Price

With Tyson, Parsons, Rondo, Dirk (hometown discount), J.J., Aminu, Jefferson, Donnie Nelson may win the Executive of the Year award this yr.

Dwain Price

Over the last three seasons, Rondo has an NBA-high 9 triple-doubles. And he missed 96 games after his ACL surgery in Feb. of 2013.

Dwain Price

Now that Brandan Wright is gone, Greg Smith moves into the backup role at center behind Tyson Chandler. And he must be ready to play -- now.

Kathryn Dunn

Excited about the newest addition to the @Dallas Mavericks roster, @Rajon Rondo! Show him some #MFFL love!

Dwain Price

#Mavs trying to win now before Dirk's skills start eroding. In other words, the future for the Mavs is now.

Mark Followill

As of 8:10 CST email was sent & it's official: Rajon Rondo traded to Mavs along w/ Dwight Powell for Wright, Crowder, Nelson & 2 draft picks

Dwain Price

It's official: The #Mavs have gotten point guard Rajon Rondo in a trade with the Boston Celtics.

Earl K. Sneed

The Mavs send back their 2015 first round pick and a 2016 second round pick to Boston in the deal.

Earl K. Sneed

Per @MavsPR, the @Dallas Mavericks have officially acquired Rajon Rondo & Dwight Powell from Boston for Wright, Crowder, Nelson and draft picks.

Dwain Price

This year's salary of #Mavs' starting 5: Tyson $14.8 mill, Parsons $14.7 mill, Rondo $12.9 mill, Monta $8.36 mill and Dirk $7.97 mill.

Mark Cuban

Can say thank you enough to @bwright34 @Jae Crowder and @Jameer Nelson. Amazing people on the court and off.

Mark Followill

Should be fun RT @Sean Grande: 4 game stretch for Rondo & Mavs in 2 wks.. 12/30 Vs Paul Pierce 1/2 Vs Cs in Boston 1/4 Vs LeBron 1/5 Vs KG

Dwain Price

With Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Chandler Parsons, Tyson Chandler and Rajon Rondo, the #Mavs arguably have the best starting 5 in the NBA.

Mark Cuban

Wow. So talented. So lucky to be part of this night ! instagram.com/p/wxQ5MFu23v/

Dwain Price

The deal is expected to be finalized tonight and includes Boston receving a $13 million trade exception, which it must use within a year.

Dwain Price

#Mavs have gotten PG Rajon Rondo and F Dwight Powell from Boston for F/C Brandan Wright, PG Jameer Nelson, F Jae Crowder and 2 draft pciks.

Derek Page

Offensively, #Mavs shouldn't be worried either. Debatable whether Rondo has ever had this much firepower at disposal. #Rondo2Dallas

Derek Page

Crucial for #Mavs to have elite perimeter defender like Rondo to be legit contenders. Too many explosive PGs out West.
