Rajon Rondo could eventually head to D-League for some rehab

Rajon Rondo is working his way back from his torn ACL and while he is working out it could well be a month before we see him step on an NBA court.

But we might see him on a D-League court sooner.

It what would be a rare move, the Celtics are considering sending Rondo to the Maine Red Claws, their D-League affiliate, to get a few games under his belt.

I think this is a trend we could see more and more of in the NBA as the D-League becomes more like a traditional minor league for teams.

You see this all the time in baseball, guys getting a few swings or a few innings on the mound at a AA team before coming back up to the majors. Why not have Rondo out there shaking off a little rust with these guys?

Plus, what a boon for the D-League and teams that are always trying to find ways to sell some tickets.
