    Cs trade is Imminent?

    Cs trade is imminent? 


    An NBA source said the Celtics are working to clear roster space over the next few weeks in order to make room for Evan Turner in the rotation. The Celtics aren’t expected to announce the signing until those moves are made, although the sides have reached an agreement. The Celtics have 18 players on their roster, including the nonguaranteed deals of Keith Bogans, Chris Babb, and Chris Johnson. The Celtics really like Johnson’s work ethic, but he averaged just 6.6 points in the five summer league games and shot 30.6 percent from the field and 18.8 percent from the 3-point line. The fact Johnson and Babb each played in all five games was a testament that team officials were taking a long look as to whether they would make a contribution next season.

    Re: Cs trade is Imminent?

    The Celtics would love to use Bogans’s contract in a trade that would perhaps net a draft pick and create salary-cap space and have been holding onto that option. It is uncertain if the Celtics would waive Bogans before the season or offer a camp invitation since he has been away from the team since February.

    Mel I agree get rid of awful green and rondo, rondo won a championship because he was in the shadows of PP,KG' and Ray Allen, even Eddie house and James posey did more in the run.

    This is roster-clearing stuff, small trades, not big stuff. 

    "Mel I agree get rid of awful green"

    Folks like the two of you neglect to mention that other teams feel the same way about Green. It's not that he's awful, he's not terrible as much as he is inconsistent. What's awful is his bad contract, which no other team wants. So it's not easy to get "rid of" a player like Green. In many cases it's better to keep him and try to get him enough playing time to raise his value, then trade him. 

     

    "and rondo, rondo won a championship because he was in the shadows of PP,KG' and Ray Allen, even Eddie house and James posey did more in the run."

    Ridiculous. Rondo was a key part of the championship team and he was a second year point guard at the time. Plenty of second year point guards have had much worse seasons, John Wall for example. 

    Rondo averaged 10 and 6 in the postseason that year, and played even better the next year when he averaged 16 and 10 when the Celts lost in the Finals. Rondo was headed towards Finals MVP though he faded late in that series. But Allen also shot us out of two games in that series. Net net Rondo played very well those postseasons. Later he hung 44 and 10 on the Heat and was the best player on the court in that series for several games. 

    You have Rondo's problems totally wrong. What Rondo has not proven is that he can be the best player on a team. I don't think he can, that's not his role. He also hasn't show he will put in the all out effort in the regular season, he tends to save his best for the bigger games. 

    Rondo has way more trade value than Green but given Rondo's contract is close to expiring even he is not especially tradeable. 

    But - expect him to be traded next season after he gets some playing time. 

    I can understand why some don't like Rondo - though calling him names after he helped win a championship (and played through all kinds of tough injuries like a dislocated elbow) is pathetic, but we see that a lot here, and not just with Rondo - folks putting down other championship players they don't like like big Baby.

    It's not that some dont like Rondo, its that some like to put in perspective the accolades being extended to him for the championship season. At best, he was the 7th most valuable player on the C's in the finals and thats being generous. Let's not pretend Rondo was the (or one the the) main players that led the team to the title... He wasnt and I as posted somewhere his finals numbers were worse than his regular season & playoff averages.

    He just wasnt very good in the finals when the game was in question and thats why he rode the bench more minutes than he did in the regular season. Thats got to be a rarity for a starter on an NBA championship team when rosters are shortened and teams traditionally extend the minutes of their most important players.

    When the Celtics lost to the Heat, for 6 games Rondo was better than the best player in the NBA. The Celtics lost because Lebron was too much. That is reason enough to build around Rondo.

    That's ignoring the elephant in the room.  Rondo relied on quickness until his injury.  He still needs to prove that he can get that quickness back.

    I would be all for that if Rondo plays like that not even all the time but a substantial portion of the time.  Talent and ability is not in question to me, it is the desire and consistency that are in question especially when things are not going well.

    PGs tend to go over the hump at 28. Not only is Rondo recovering from a serious knee injury, but he's doing so while entering his decline years.

    After 8 seasons you're pointing to one series, that we lost, as to the greatness of Rondo? It's actually one the the reasons Im not so high on him. Veteran players to build around have a legacy of greatness, PP, MJ, Magic etc, not one series that was lost.

    It truly defines Rondos lack of effort and desire, especially defensively. Had he developed his game further and applied the effort 90% of the time and tried to become an accepted leader as opposed to an anointed (and rejected) one by the nitwit Doc, Rondo could have truly been a superstar.

    nba players tend to reach their peak between 27 and 33. rondo's knee injury - while serious - was a partial tear and he's had 18 mos to recover all while entering his prime years.

    so we see it's just about one's perspective. i wouldn't say there's an elephant in the room. more like a manageable awareness. if rondo's diminished, he needs to go. as a fan, i'm more concerned with rondo embracing smart's presence and making smart and all teammates better players.

    Agreed....And Rondo will NEVER allow someone like Smart to take his minutes or what he perceives to be his leadership role on this team. The two of them playing harmoniously in the same back court will just never happen.

    Absolutely agree!..Rondo is on the downside now thanks to his "elephantine" lack of quickness and his refusal to incorporate his teammates into a more smother flow on the court. ...He's lost it (if he ever HAD it) and the time to dump him is now before other GM's realize it!

    Smart or Bradley will play the Vinnie "The Microwave" Johnson role. Rondo is needed and safe from a supreme passing skills standpoint. Bradley and Smart will NEVER be the passer Rondo is.
