One Boston Celtics point guard alumnus getting bought out may well be bad news for another’s aspirations for one more shot in the league after a debilitating injury sustained with Boston in 2017 led to Isaiah Thomas’ trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Krawczynski recently tweeted that the “Lakers were strongly considering signing Isaiah Thomas, and things appeared to be headed that way as September approaches.”

But, “Rondo getting the buyout from Memphis clearly changed things in recent days,” the implication being that the guard they won a title with is likely their preferred option.
