In response to mossad-did-911's comment:
because any deal would have to require Rondo's agreement to a long term extension, the only possibility i see is the Lakers. Rondo for Nash, pick #7, 2018 1st round swap option, and 2019 #1.
Kobe will be long gone by the time 2018-19 roll around potentially giving Boston a couple lottery picks.
After that you swap Jeff Green+Nash to OKC for Reggie Jackson+pick 21+Perk+Thebeet to make the #s work.
I believe OKC would do this to have legit third scorer again and Durant's best buddy JG back. Nash would give them veteran leadership off the bench and only need to play limited minutes behind Westbrook, also gives them a different option for playing style. And Steven Adams has really taken the role of Perk moving forward, Im sure they would rather put that $ into two guys that will actually play.
We get a dynamic young PG who does a little bit of everything and deserves a chance to start somewhere, which he will never get in OKC. A pick that frankly the Thunder don't need, and the last year of Perks deal.
Draft Vohnleh 6, Gordon 7, Package 17 & 21 for the 14th pick try to get Stauskas, Saric, Lavine ...whoever falls.
Reggie Jackson / Bradley / A. Gordon / Sully / Vonleh
Bench: Pressey / Stauskas / Wallace / Olynyk / Bass / Perk / Thebeet / Chris Johnson / Fav
We would def. be in the lottery for the next year or two, but that team could be exciting to watch grow up together. We would need to add shooters later although Stauskas could break out and become the deadeye two guard we would need to make Bradley into a six man or Tradebait.
