News: Powell was traded to the Mavericks along with on Thursday in exchange for Brandan Wright, Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder and two future draft picks, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Rondo is obviously the headliner here, but the 6-foot-11 Powell amounts to a nice throw-in for the Mavericks. While he only appeared in five games with the Celtics this season and won't be asked to contribute for his new team in 2014-15, Powell has made some noise during his multiple stints in the D-League, where he averaged 21.5 points and 10.5 rebounds across four games. Look for him to report to the Mavericks' affiliate, the Texas Legends, at some point in the near future.
News: Rondo was traded to the Mavericks on Thursday for three players and two draft picks, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Rondo will be sent to Dallas in exchange for Brandan Wright, Jameer Nelson and Jae Crowder along with a 2015 first-round pick and a future second-round pick. In 22 games with the Celtics this season, Rondo is averaging 8.3 points, 10.8 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 32 minutes. Playing alongside a more talented team in Dallas should also provide a boost to his numbers moving forward, and strengthen the Mavs' chances of finishing as one of the top seeds in the Western Conference. In accepting the trade to the Mavericks, Rondo gave his new team a "strong indication" that he would be amenable to a contract extension.
News: Felton (ankle) still has no updated timetable for his debut.
Impact: He started the season serving a suspension and still hasn't gotten healthy enough to play. Even when he does return, the logjam at the guard positions will keep him at bay, meaning he's unlikely to hold any significant fantasy value in most league.
News: Parsons netted a season-high 32 points Wednesday in Dallas' win over Detroit.
Impact: Parsons also added seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in the victory. He is susceptible to the occasional off night, but for the most part, Parsons is one of the top offensive weapons for the Mavericks.
