ESPN NBA Insider Chris Broussard, who reported Wednesday that the Celtics were aggressively shopping Rajon Rondo, talked to "SportsCenter" this morning about the team's motivation behind it.

"With Rajon, it's a lot of personality conflict," Broussard says in the video above. "He's kind of introverted. He's stubborn, which can be a strength but can also be a weakness. He has trouble taking constructive criticism and he does clash a lot with Doc Rivers. They know he's a great player. They're not going to just give him away. But they feel like they probably can't rebuild around him because of the problems they do have with clashing with his personality."
