The Toronto Raptors are reportedly interested in acquiring four-time all-star Rajon Rondo from the Boston Celtics.
According to a report by Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun, the Raptors have been involved in talks with multiple teams, including the Celtics about their point guard.
With the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, almost every player on the Celtics' roster is believed to be available for the right price.
According to Bull.com's Sam Smith, the asking price for Rondo is believed to be two unprotected first rounders. A source told the Sun that the asking price is a combination of at least one lottery pick and talented young player.
The 27-year-old Rondo tore his ACL just over a year ago and played only 10 games this season. Last year, the Louisville, KY native averaged 13.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, 11.1 assists and 1.84 steals in 37.4 minutes per game, appearing in only 38 games due to the knee injury.
Rondo, who becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2015 season, will earn $12.9 million in the final year of his contract.
Rondo was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the first round (21st overall) of the 2006 NBA Draft. The Suns then traded Brian Grant and the rights to Rondo to the Celtics for a future first-round selection.
