Are you ready for the rumors to start swirling?
This morning, Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo had breakfast together, according to a Reddit user.
“Just saw Kobe and Rondo at breakfast together in Boston with what looked like an agent,” the Redditor wrote. “Possible Rondo trade destination?”
Here’s the pic:
Now, we can’t confirm whether an agent was present at the breakfast, but that is most definitely Kobe and Rondo. And as for the talk of a trade? That doesn’t seem very likely, though there is a chance that Bryant was doing a little recruiting over pancakes and coffee seeing as Rondo is set to be an unrestricted free agent this coming summer.
There have already been reports of the Lakers preparing to pursue Rondo in 2015, and this kind of photo – even if they were just eating breakfast – will only add even more fuel to the fire.
UPDATE: Here’s another photo of the breakfast, courtesy of ESPN Los Angeles’ Baxter Holmes:
