In response to BrandBreaker8's comment:
I have to admit, I like the Stauskas, Porter & 2017 first rounder for Rondo if we are going to cut him loose unless there's a "big" available like Meyers Leonard in a similar package.
That said, if RR doesn't bring a potential superstar or at least perennial all-star player in return, we are screwed or at a minimum set back a few years.
Thanks man, glad you agree that that is a decent haul for Rondo. Not sure why the other two guys had to be jerks on this site, I just felt the deal was so complex and included so many names it needed justification that it could work and wasn't just one sided in the C's favor like so many are.
It can also be done as a 3-teamer with DET and SAC:
Celtics --> Thompson, Stauskas, Outlaw, Bynum, Williams, '17 pick
Kings --> Rondo, Smith
Pistons --> Wallace, Bass, Terry
And a separate 2 team trade:
Celtics --> Webster, Porter
Wizards --> Green
But in that rendition we are dropping 5 players to add 7 when our roster is already full. I think the Pistons being able to drop 4.5 million of Jerebko for 5.4 million of Webster, who fills a bigger need (the departed Stuckey) would just make it more appealing for Detroit. Talent wise they pay an extra 5 million here for less talent than in the other deal and Boston has to basically cut Outlaw and Bynum, eating 6 million (or else involve Bogans somehow?)
Once again you're attacking other posters on this board for being realistic!
Celts give up 3 of their best players for role players and unproven players?
