NBA Trade Rumors: Rajon Rondo Joining Houston Rockets Next Season? Will He Be A Good Fit In A Team That Heavily Relies On 3-Point Shooting?

Point Guard Rajon Rondo has been struggling since joining the Dallas Mavericks.

Only averaging 9.2 points, 6.4 assists, and 4.7 rebounds per game, he is not living up the expectations of many.

Now, rumors indicate that he might sign with the Houston Rockets by next season.

But, will he be a good fit?

NBA Insider Ken Berger initially reported that Rondo was only interested to be traded in two teams, Dallas or Houston.

However, looking at the way things are going with the Mavericks, the Rockets could make a run for the point guard.

In an interview with Yahoo! Sports , Rondo discussed his struggles and plans with the Mavericks.

He said that he “has not had a change of heart” since his argument with Carlisle.

“People say I’m not trying to be here, but I don’t talk to anybody but the five people that are in my circle,” Rondo said.

“I will vent to them about where I want to be.

I’m happy.

I’m in a great situation.

The best thing is the weather.

I miss my kids.

I miss my family.

That’s hard, as well not having them and you come home after playing a bad game.

They are always there to cheer you up.

That’s been difficult.” Rajon Rondo has plenty of reasons to join the Rockets.

They have two perennial All-Stars in James Harden and Dwight Howard, plus, he and Josh Smith are close friends as well.

Rondo confirmed to the media via ESPN.com that players and friends in the league have been recruiting him for free agency.

Rondo said that Kobe Bryant is one of the suitors and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks is luring him as well.

The Rockets will also lose Patrick Beverley for four to six months due to a torn ligament in his wrist.

With or without Beverley, the Rockets are clearly lacking depth in the point guard position.

However, will he be a good fit in a team relying mostly with its three-point shooting?
