    Rondo for a lotto pick?

    Would any of the top 4 be willing to trade their pick for Rondo? I'd say the Cavs and the 76ers are out. 2 is probably too high of a pick for the Bucks to get rid of, but I think the Magic might be willing to part with theirs. In that case, you have both the 4 and 6, and take whoever is left of the top 4 (likely Exum) and then take the next best on your board (Randle, Vonleh or Gordon). If you wind up with a PF, you then have Sully as some solid trade bait, and still have 17 to pick up another pretty good player.


    The Magic would still have the number 12 pick in the draft, and the C's could throw in a 2nd rounder as a sweetener if they needed it. I also wouldn't mind seeing Jeff Green involved.

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    My thought is anyone opting to trade Rondo for a lottery pick must not think much about Rondo. For those believing Rondo is an all star PG or top5-10 in the nba, then why on earth would you trade him for an unknown commodity?


    Teams with lottery picks hope & pray their pick turns out to be a good nba player, let alone an all star. The transition from college ball to NBA ball with an 82 game season , so much traveling & no more college babying etc etc  is just added weight on these young players to deal with, let alone can their bodies and talent adapt to the level & grind of nba play. Nobody in this draft is a lights out sure thing..theres no Lew Alcindor or Bill Walton..


    So, why give away a sure thing for a roll of the dice?


    For the record, Im not a big Rondo fan but pose this question for those that are/

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    Can't help you there. Rondo is no longer worth anything near a lottery pick, let alone a top 3 or 4. The guy is no longer near the top ten PG's in the NBA...deal with it Rondon't lovers, your boy sucks !

    C's are going to have to build the old fashion way. If they want a real player this year they either pick Vonleh, if he makes it to them, or they package their #6 with a player and another pick to grab one of the top 3 picks IF someone there will do the deal. There will be no LOVE in Beantown, not with the #6.

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    DA should either trade the 6th pick for an established veteran player or he should start the real, multi-year rebuild.  Since I can't see Love coming here, even though DA will explore all options for a quick rebuild, it makes you wonder if it's worth keeping Rondo.  I like Rondo as a player unlike some around here, but if there's no deal for Love or a comparable player I'd rather get something valuable for him, assuming someone offers enough in trade.

    Rondo is not worth keeping and if he's NOT traded, it's far worse to think about giving him a large, multiple year contract that would keep him here than to let him just walk away for nothing in return. Time for the "can't shot - no defense" headcase to go!

    Why would Love want to play with a bunch of rookies, Jeff Green, and Bradley? He would be LA bound as soon as his contract was up and we would have traded Rondo and the 6th pick for essentially nothing.

    It doesn't say "Danny Ainge is willing to jettison his 3 best tradable assets in order to acquire 1 high caliber player who will WALK the following year."  Which is exactly what would happen.  There is absolutely no reason to bring Kevin Love here if Rondo is gone or he hasn't been replaced by someone even better.  What would that line-up look like? Ennis (rookie) Bradley, Green, Love, and Olynyk, with a bench of bass, Fav, Chris Johnson and 2 more rookies? That team is worse then the Timberwolves are right now, and Love is dying to get outta there. 

    Love for a one year rental and another trip to the lottery + the 13th pick aren't worth giving up Rondo, Sully, and the 6th pick. No offense, but I just don't get the thinking here.  Unless you are head over heels in love with Ennis and Lavine, but you could probably get those guys just by trading a future pick to move up a couple spots from 17.

    No offense taken.  Just having a terrible day...

    I'm actually not sold on taking Love in the first place.  Just seems to be the topic of the day.

    I definitely don't want him if he refuses to re-sign.

    I'm disappointed over the #6 pick.  I had FIVE top-tier players in this draft, and we are 6th......UGH!

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    Love has not proven to be a difference maker on a winning team. Personally, I'd do it but only as a way to dump our crew of over-priced, over-hyped "stars", the disaster duo of Rondon't and Green-sleeves. Otherwise, keep your draft picks and build the old fashioned way, and wait for the Headcase to walk away next year...good riddance!

     Green? Just take him out back and bury him, because he sucks!!! THE MOST MEANINGLESS AND WORTHLESS 16 POINTS PER GAME IN THE NBA TODAY! Give him to Washington - maybe we can sabotage them with Green!

    Yeah, I think we are all in the same bad mood today.  Hence my own multiple negative posts today.

    And Mel, if you are anything it is consistent! LOL.  How about this idea to get rid of the two banes of your existence...Rondo for pick #7 and Nash from LAL.  Then Green + Nash+ #17 back to OKC for Reggie Jackson pick #21, the husk of Perk + filler.  You end up with 3 picks and a dynamic young point guard who can do a little bit of everything. Perk comes off the books next year I believe.

    I agree that trading Rondo for a pick, straight up, would be ludicrous.  Those that discount elite passers like Rondo are retahded.  During the Big 3's final hurrah, especially during playoff battles, Rondo was often the best player on the court.  What he lacks in shooting, he more than makes up for with savvy and aggressiveness.  *Plus he hates Miami more than all of us.
