The two have remained close since their days in Boston as teammates came to an end and they often communicate whenever they can.  Oklahoma City Thunder C Kendrick Perkins and Dallas Mavericks G Rajon Rondo will be forever linked.   With Rondo being officially traded to the Mavericks on Thursday, Perkins shed light on Rondo's state of mind Friday.

"He wanted out, but he would never say that though," Perkins told Yahoo Sports. Perkins said Rondo expressed his excitement about his trade to the Dallas Mavericks in a brief phone conversation on Thursday. "Going to nice weather, a contender," Perkins said. "Hopefully, he will do what he got to do in terms of his contract extension. It's a great opportunity. I'm happy for him. I'm not happy he is in the West, but I'm happy for him. His time was probably up in Boston. He did his due."
