Remember talking with other media at start of camp about a firm belief that Vitor Faverani would never play another game with the #Celtics.

Jake Fischer

Was a minor mistake, but the Celtics dropped the ball on signing Vitor Faverani over Colton Iverson last summer. Iverson could've developed.

Jessica Camerato

The Celtics have traded two captains in a year and a half.

Kevin Pelton

Grading the Rajon Rondo deal for both the Celtics and Mavericks: es.pn/13ixSh8 (In)

Baxter Holmes

Only one player remains on the Celtics and Lakers rosters from their 2008 & 2010 Finals matchups: Kobe Bryant.

Gary Washburn

Rajon Rondo and the Dallas Mavericks come to TD Garden on Jan. 2. #celtics

Steve Kyler

Celtics end up with $12.9 million Traded Player Exception in Rondo deal. Used existing exceptions to absorb Mavs players creating huge TPE.

Scott Agness

Crazzy #Celtics RT @ShannonMoorer: And then there were none http://t.co/ixNs3XbJVG

Rich Levine

Between December 28 - January 5, Rondo plays five games: vs. Perk, vs. Pierce, at the Celtics, at LeBron and at KG.

Brian Robb

It's just amazing to me that the Celtics got nearly the same return for taking on Marcus Thornton's deal as this Rondo trade.

Brian Robb

Celtics now have three 1st round draft picks for both the 2015 and 2016 NBA Drafts. Nine 1st rounders total over the next four drafts.

Scott Souza

Heading on @985TheSportsHub to talk - what else? - end of the #Celtics Rajon Rondo Era w/ @adamjones985 & @Keefe21 about 7:20.

Royce Young

Grade the Trade: Mavericks acquire Rondo, Celtics get another pick cbsprt.co/1AMuHt3 What are your grades?

Mark Murphy

Source added that Rondo had not told Celtics management of his doubts about Celtics' short term future.

Derek Bodner

#sixers trading Hawes and Turner months before they hit FA is tanking, #celtics doing same with Rondo is getting value while you can.

Jeff Caplan

That's really the best #Celtics could do Rondo? Steal for #Mavs.

Carlos Areneta

At least you'll always have 2008, Celtics.

Royce Young

What the Rajon Rondo trade means for the Celtics cbsprt.co/1v5u0Ye

Scott Cacciola

I wonder if the Celtics' future draft picks are hanging out with the Sixers' future draft picks. Just sitting there, in draft purgatory.

Sean Deveney

Slow start, dwindling FA crop push Celtics to (finally) pursue Rondo trade dlvr.it/7sPJ00

Gary Washburn

#celtics-#mavericks are waiting on the NBA trade call to make deal official

Gary Washburn

Here are the new #celtics contract status: Wright is a FA this summer, Crowder has a qualifying offer, Nelson has a player option for 15-16

Demian Belmonte

Rajon Rondo se irá siendo el cuarto máximo asistente de la historia (LA HISTORIA) de Boston Celtics ultimatenba.com/lideres-histor…

Jonathan Feigen

Don't be surprised if Celtics look to flip Wright. One of the reasons Celtics needed a deal done by Friday.

Sean Grande

When Danny made his other December deal (2003), the Celtics next hosted the Flip Saunders-coached Timberwolves. Déjà vu all over again.

Chris Mannix

Sources: Celtics, Mavericks agree to terms on a deal that will send All-Star guard Rajon Rondo to Dallas si.com/nba/2014/12/18…

Demian Belmonte

Así podrían quedar finalmente los números de Rondo en Celtics ultimatenba.com/fichas/estadis…

Kurt Helin

Story updated: Celtics agree to deal sending Rajon Rondo to Mavericks for package of players, picks. probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/12/18/rep…

Gary Washburn

Sorry about that folks, with Powell headed to Dallas, that's one roster move. #celtics

Gary Washburn

The #celtics will now have to waive two players for this deal to go through. So there could be more interesting roster decisions coming soon

Tom Haberstroh

Alarming SportVU stat: Celtics FG% off of Rajon Rondo's passes this season: 46 percent. Celtics FG% off of Evan Turner's passes: 50 percent.

Chad Ford

That 10th pick, which Boston owns, is likely to get better as Celtics clearly headed toward the tank now. 22nd pick via Mavs may get worse

Chris Mannix

Have to believe G.M. Danny Ainge is building towards another move. Celtics now have three picks in next June's draft.

Vince Cellini

Guess those Ainge - McHale Celtics ties only run so deep. @Houston Rockets @Dallas Mavericks

Chad Ford

After Bos-Dal trade today: Celtics in line to have 10, 22 (via Mavs) & 23 (via LAC) picks in the 2015 draft

Chris Mannix

Celtics paid lip service to the idea that a Rondo/Marcus Smart backcourt could work long term. That was a pipe dream. It's Smart's team now.

Gary Washburn

Can confirm particulars of the deal: Wright, Crowder, Nelson, 1st and 2nd round pick to #celtics. @Marc Stein first,

Tom Haberstroh

For the first time in the 21st century, the Celtics will not have Paul Pierce or Rajon Rondo on the roster. End of an era.

Baxter Holmes

Celtics pretty pleased with the return they got for Rondo.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

Ni Lakers, ni Rockets. Rondo deja los Celtics para jugar en Dallas

Leyre Gonzalez Grande

Rondo rumbo a Dallas y los Celtics sin sabor.

Jessica Camerato

Trade shows different direction of the two teams: #Mavs contending, #Celtics rebuilding

Andrew Perna

The biggest question surrounding the #Celtics is how much more could Ainge have gotten at the various times Rondo was reportedly on block.

Emiliano Carchia

Celtics trade Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks sportando.com/en/usa/nba/145…

Gary Lee

Celtics wanted the Lakers’ first round pick, so Rajon Rondo is reportedly headed to the Dallas Mavericks for pieces. lakersnation.com/breaking-celti…

Jeff Goodman

Brandan Wright will give the celtics much-needed length and athleticism up front. Can be a quality starter with expanded role.

Jessica Camerato

Brandan Wright leads the NBA with 74.8 EFG% for my analytics tweeps #Celtics
