Report: "Extremely Unlikely" That Rajon Rondo Stays With Dallas Mavericks After This Season

According to a report, it is "extremely unlikely" that former Kentucky star Rajon Rondo will remain with the Dallas Mavericks after this season.

Rondo had an in-game dust up with head coach Rick Carlisle earlier this week and was suspended for a game in the aftermath.

Here is an excerpt from CBS Boston:

ESPN’s Tim McMahon reported that the shouting match between Rondo and Carlisle this week stemmed from each man believing he ought to be in charge of calling plays. Whether the point guard and the coach can reconcile their differences and put together a postseason run this spring is unknown, but McMahon notes that once this season ends, it’s likely that Rondo’s time as a Maverick will as well.

“The reality is Rondo’s run with the Mavs is extremely unlikely to extend past this season,” McMahon wrote.

The on-court incident was apparently just the appetizer, as McMahon reported that an “even more explosive” meeting behind closed doors took place on Tuesday. As a result, the Mavericks suspended Rondo for one game.

“We need to work on the solution for making his stint as a Dallas Maverick the most successful one possible,” Carlisle said. “We’re looking at 23 games here. Right now, this is a critical time for us.”
