In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
How can anyone talk about fair value for Rondo till he makes it back on the court anyhow? It's highly unlikely Rondo will be moved until he can prove something on the court. Until then you have to trade him at a discount if you move him....
To be fair rame is not advocating Rondo for George Hill from what I can see.
That said I don't care if Hill's PER is almost what Rondo's is. Rondo is a MUCH better player than Hill, not a little better.
I am not advocating or asking for this trade.
Meanwhile it is NOT Rondo for Hill. Fierce is too much of a clown and a liar to mention all the other benefits of the trade.
- 27 million in savings over 2+ seasons
- 1-2 more first round draft picks
- Rondo's injury risk/issues from it (possibly being less of a player), attitude questions, ability to lead without Doc/KG/PP and desire for a max contract in 18 months are no longer burdens for a rebuilding team.
- The ability to sign both Avery and Crawford (if so desired by Ainge), meaning a backcourt rotation of Craw (6m), Avery (7m) and Hill (8m) is more solid/productive than one of Rondo (12m then extension paying him 17-21m a year), Avery OR Craw and Pressy (unless Phil get A LOT better).
**Crawford is the likely player to walk if choosing between him and Avery. He is 2 years younger than Rondo and can be extended for say 4/24... so he'd make 42 MILLION less than RR if he signed a max deal, then be off the books 2 years before Rondo would make 20 and 21 million for his age 32 and 33 years.**
- A better position in the all important 2014 NBA draft if Hill/Granger have to be implemented on the fly over the already established Hill/Wallace and a superior PG who is practicing/familiar with the team.
This are the issues that Fierce can't get. He was just desperate to make childish ingorant attacks and bully me for something he clearly doesn't grasp the big picture of. In the end he looks like a clown.
and it is why I win the vast majority of the arguments the two of us have
