Rajon Rondo is poised to switch to the Dallas Mavericks.
The news was confirmed by Yahoo's respected NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski via Twitter:
Boston will send Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell to Dallas for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jamar Nelson, 2015 first-round and future second.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 18, 2014
Dwight Powell joins him making the trade with Dallas sending three players and two drafts picks as compensation.
Rondo is an All-Star point guard, but has been keen to switch to take on a new challenge.
Dallas sit sixth in the Western Conference at present with a 19-8 win loss record. Boston are ninth in the Eastern Conference at 9-14.
