Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green didn’t hold back with his thoughts on the Clippers going out and trading for veteran point guard Rajon Rondo.
With the NBA trade deadline here on Thursday, we’ve seen some big deals made across both conferences. This includes the Atlanta Hawks trading veteran point guard Rajon Rondo to the Los Angeles Clippers, with Lou Williams heading to Atlanta.
As you might have been able to guess, social media erupted once Rondo’s move to Los Angeles was announced. Warriors stud Draymond Green also took to Twitter to voice his opinion and you better believe he’s fired up over the move.
Draymond Green is calling the Rajon Rondo deal the best trade of the day across the NBA
Green didn’t hold back at all and made it clear that he thought Rondo heading to the Clippers surely won NBA trade deadline day. Rondo is a magician on the hardwood, with the former NBA Finals champion being known for his incredible passing abilities.
Now, he’ll head to Los Angeles to try and help the Clippers finish out the season on a strong note. L.A. currently holds a 29-16 record and sits in third place of the Western Conference standings. Imagine Rondo hitting the hardwood and feeding the ball in transition to Kawhi Leonard? Yup, Clippers fans have to be excited about what’s about to come for the team.
While the Lakers are hoping to repeat as NBA champions, the Clippers aren’t ready to stop reminding folks that the other team from the City of Angels is already ready to do everything possible to win it all as well.
The addition of Rondo surely is a monster one. The fact that someone like Green is also a fan of the move lets you know just how smart the Clippers were to bring him to town.
