    Looks like we're not going to see a Rondo-Smaht backcourt this coming season.

    Well: his hocus focus ball handling is familiar --- I've seen it before, maybe from Rondo? only he's a white guy.

    Nope! that trade will not do any good for celtics -- they need "BIG"

    Dont tease me!!!

    Any trade removing Rondo is an attractive proposition.

    I like the potential of MacLemore.  If he ever gets his head on straight he has the potential to be a legit starter if not an all star.

    We needed more bad shooters who combine for about one more rebound than Rondo, basically no assists and do shoot fouls a little better We need draft choices here, hopefully the Kings have someone else's, better than their own.

    The Kings aren't laden with talent, so why not wait until something better comes along, if they're going to make a trade? Not getting enough in return on this one. When Rondo has more time between playing this season and his surgery, his stock will rise.

    This trade gives us SG number 25 it seems.  I understand trade chips, but a whole roster of wing players and PF's does not a team make.  We need a legit superstar SF and a legit C.  MAYBE Zeller can be that C, but I doubt it.  He is likely just complimentary.

    There is nothing about this on the Sacramento Bee website. So, is this just Tyler Spence's fantasy?

    If we trade Rondo we better get a player back who is in the top 3 players at his position!

    I imagine they are arguing over how much protection should be on the 1st round pick.

    We must be getting Cousins, that's why he's not playing for team USA.(Bruised knee?)

    Cousins is younger than Rondo. Not a leader like Rondo. He has potential as a franchise player.

    I would rather have Rondo.

    We are rebuilding, and Rondo unfortunately for a lot of different reasons will deter the rebuilding process.  He is worth a lot more to the Celtics being traded.  Cousins has nothing to do with it.

    Does Rondo-Wallace-Anthony for Cousins-Mclemore-Williams make us better in the long term?(ESPN trade machine)


    I don't think so.


    Pushes Smart or Pressey to start.


    Pg- Pressey,Smart,Turner


    Sg-Bradley, Thornton, Mclemore(not enough mins)


    Sf-Green,Turner,Williams(not enough mins)


    Pf-Sully,Olynyk,Bass(not enough mins)


    C- Cousins, Faverani, Zeller (Best center rotation in NBA)

    I promise.

    Re: Rondo To Kings 80% Done

    This is a false rumor put out by TSpense, who is just trying to build more buzz for himself. BUT McLemore, Williams and a pick is probably about as good as it is going to get as a return for Rondo. 

    It doesn't matter that we already have 4 SGs, the main goal this season should be the development for the ONLY player on the team who has the slightest shot at being a perennial all-star in the future, Marcus Smart.  Every other player right now is basically a place holder until we can acquire some real talent. 

    Maybe Olynyk or Sully are still nice Role players on the Celtics by the time they are actually a solid playoff team, but both are very easy to replace, and should be a couple of our more valuable trade chips. Smart is the only one who has the talent and drive to be a top 3 player on a contending team. Until you get the other 2 players who have the talent to be in that trifecta, everyone else is interchangeable. Kept, traded, benched, starting, it just doesn't matter as long as Smart is getting his opportunities, touches, shots, and press coverage.

    And the idea that we could get Cousins for Rondo, in any situation, is completely out of touch with reality. And claiming that one might refuse that impossible trade and stick with Rondo OVER Cousins shows a complete lack of basketball and NBA knowledge.

    Rondo has done more in his career than Cousins. A proven clutch player who elevates everyone around him. Cousins only looks good on a stat sheet.
