I think this is what we should consider a bad sign for a soon to be NBA free agent. It's not exactly rock bottom considering you can't do much better than Rajon Rondo if you are looking for an enigmatic point guard that can't make jump shots and is liable to use homophobic slurs towards officials. Still, when you are preemptively throwing your name into the ring of the organizational equivalent of a red headed step child then your career could definitely be on a better trajectory.
Let's put it this way, the entirety of every NBA front office is going to be fighting to find a seat inside Kevin Durant's open house while Rajon Rondo is going shanty-to-shanty ringing doorbells and begging for work from the less fortunate. Having your interests be newsworthy is still a positive, but I think it's offset by the negative when that interest is a team that won 21 games and doesn't have a single draft pick throughout a Presidential term that hasn't even started yet. Wanting to be a Net, during what promises to be an era of complete and utter embarrassment, is like waiting until 2016 to register as a Republican. It's one thing to be contractually indebted to a circus, it's another to try to join one after it's already well on it's way to becoming nothing more than a clown show. I would imagine there are D-League players that would need a night to sleep on it before accepting a 10 day contract from Brooklyn, yet - for some reason - there is a 4-time NBA All Star essentially flying self promotional banners over the Barclays Center in an attempt to notify it's occupants of his availability. I suppose it's fitting that a perpetually flawed basketball player - with what can only be described as a personality disorder - is eager to leave Sacramento for quite possibly the only team with a less promising future, but it's definitely not an idea that is rooted in sanity.
P.S. Just because...
