In response to Iceman4's comment:
Clippers need this move....Ainge better not cave. If it falls through, you go one more year with same group.
Doc and KG might stay, but Pierce is definitely gone for sure.
Fierce...irrespective of all the bantering, like that as being good natured as opposed to bad mouthing, between you and a few other posters, many should admit you have a very sound basketball acumen more times than not.
Most posters want the deal but only with Bledsoe. Why the love affair with him if we keep Rondo. He averaged under 10 points per game and rebs a 3-4 ave ? Even Rondo was a more prolific scorer and probably the best PG rebounder in the game. Now if we then trade Rondo for a Cousins...maybe ? How about we get Blake Griffin for KG and Butler( 6'7") for PP whom they could waive or keep. And they keep Andre Jordan as they would not have a Center unless they then plan to get Howard. Now without Bledsoe, maybe we keep Rondo & hope that Melo develops and Sully is enough for rebounding but the important thing is to look to the future and get 2 draft picks and with ours too, draft a couple of 6'10"---7' Centers and bite the bullet a couple of years maybe even makng a first round playoff.
And now the Clippers could trade Bledsoe & Jordan to the Lakers for DH(LA Is desperate for a PG) !!! And the Clippers would be a strong favorite with DH, Paul, KG and even an ageing PP if they kept him.
Looking at stats why do we want Bledsoe unless he plays with Rondo and they are an awesome duo or we trade either for Cousins, preferably Bledsoe as I'd prefer to keep Rondo.
PPG REB ASST FG%
8.5 3.0 3.1 44.5%
PPG 13.7 REB 5.6 ASST 11.1 FG% 48.4
I think the real plumb in the trade is not Bledsoe, Jordan etc. but would be the value of the draft picks plus our own. With them if not a desirable big man in the draft, could we then get a Cousins or another formidable big man, Jefferson, Josh Smith and a scorer too like Redick.
