In response to jtkl's comment:
I think it is pretty clear there is alot of wishful thinking going on with the anti Rondo crowd regarding their feverent hope that, Rondo is moved.
Fact is, the Celtics owner, and GM have gone on recorded several times saying Rondo won't be traded. They have named him captain, a odd move if they plan on trading him in 30 days.
Now don't get me wrong, if the Thunder call and offer durant Rondo is gone in a heartbeat, but Ainge considers Rondo a blue Chip guy and won't trade unless he gets equivelent value. The odds of Rondo going are minutely small.... but hey the If you're part of the trade Rondo club there is always tommorow. Maybe, that will be your lucky day. Today is looking bleak for your postion.
[/QUOTE] If the Thunder calls and offers Reggie Jackson, Rondo would be gone.
Yeah, but OKC would also rather have Jackson than Rondo, so that aint happenin.
If OKC trades anyone, it will be Westbrook because they are playing better as a team now, but they need a big man if they want a championship.
Westbrook and Perk to Knicks (so the Knicks can resign Melo)
Chandler, JR Smith or Shumpert and a pick to OKC (Chandler defends Hibbert in the finals)
No way does OKC take JR Smith. They don't have knuckleheads on their team. I think anything you wrote is plausible. Chandler and Shumpert is good.
