Report: Rajon Rondo to meet with Nets
The wheels appear to be turning on a potential Rajon Rondo return to the Eastern Conference.
According to a report by Brian Lewis of the New York Post on Thursday, Rondo, the four-time All-Star point guard, is scheduled for a meeting with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets just waived incumbent point guard Jarrett Jack, and Rondo had previously been said to have interest in joining them.
Rondo is on the wrong side of 30 and was little more in Sacramento last year than a glorified padder of hollow stats. But beggars can’t be choosers, and that goes for both sides with the Nets having probably the lousiest point guard situation in the league right now after the Knicks acquired Derrick Rose and the Jazz traded for George Hill.
Still, it’s the worst era in NBA history to have a guard who can’t shoot, not to mention that Rondo hasn’t tried on the defensive end for many years now. He has a lot of work to do to rebuild his brand, but a Brooklyn team that went 21-61 last season and is desperate for any semblance of production may represent his best chance to do so.
