    Rondo to Sacramento is Real?

    Rondo to Sacramento is Real?


    KHTK in Sacramento, apparently a CBS (radio) affiliate, is apparently tweeting that Sacramento is deep in talks with the Celtics and Detroit, and that offers are on the table, and that the two deals are dependent on each other.


    Was told by a lower management Kings official, talks regarding Pistons F Josh Smith are on hold as of now, due to SAC/BOS Rondo negotiations


    Was told reasoning behind slow process, due to Kings wanting both Rondo & Smith. Unlikely one comes without the other.Kings torn on Mclemore


    Am being told Kings staying put with both offers. SAC offering G Ben McLemore, 1st round pick, & Jason Terry to BOS for G Rajon Rondo.


    Kings also staying put with offer to Pistons. SAC would send F Jason Thompson , PG Ray McCallum to DET for F Josh Smith.


    I don't know how legit these reports are, twitter being what it is, and rumors being what they are, but it sounds legit to me. I think that this is the deal that needs to happen, one that will help everyone. I think Sacramento needs to figure out a way to sweeten its offers a little, but Danny also has to get real about the leverage he no longer has. Other teams know that going into the season with both Rondo and Smart will be a mess, one way or another. Danny has to make a move. This sounds like the move to make. Rondo has to get real too, I think. He has to recognize that he is not now, and possibly never was, part of Danny's plan. He has to recognize that, while everyone wants to go to a major market, the most important thing is to be on a team that wants you, playing with people you want to play with. As Durant has proven, being in a major market isn't everything. Ditto Lebron.



    I wanted Rondo to be a Celtics legend and I thought he could be one of the greatest. I think the shabby treatment of Rondo, as I see it, by Ainge has been a big mistake by Ainge. But now it really is time for both sides to move on. Hopefully Rondo can begin to build a new legend in Sacramento. Hopefully Smart can do the same in Boston.


    ------------------------


    Apparently the Detroit Free Press (via Pro Basketball Talk) says there is no there there...


    Sacramento was looking to send nothing of value in return for Smith, which almost seems fair when considering he’s guaranteed $40.5 million over the next three seasons.


    But there’s a new regime in Detroit with Stan Van Gundy acting as head coach and president of basketball operations, and he obviously wants to see if he can properly utilize Smith’s talents before shipping him out in exchange for nothing more than financial flexibility.


    My guess is that there are legs to the story, but that the Kings will have to sweeten both offers.


    -----------------------------


    The latest from KHTK is that Detroit has agreed to a deal and that everything hinges on Ainge now. I don't know how valid the report is, but if it is on the money, I hope Danny stops dithering and gets down to making a deal. It's time for everyone to have a chance to move on.

    Either Detroit or the Kings need to pony up with another 1st round pick for Boston!

    McLemore and two 1st round picks might get it done - JT just a throw in!

    That deal with SAC is one of the worst I have heard. Rondo for that package is embarrassing and I pray I will never happen. It gives us nothing we need nothing.

    Re: Rondo to Sacramento is Real?

    First let me say , I don't want to trade Rondo. If we are going to be involved in a trade that brings Sac Rondo and J Smith I would suggest this;

    Sac gets: RR and Smith

    Det gets: Gay

    Den gets: G Wallace and Joel Anthony and the lower of Det and Sac picks 15 and 17

    We get: J McGee , Maclemore or Stauskas and W Bynum and the better of Det and Sacs picks 15 and 17.

    Again, I'm a Rondo fan but if we are going to send him to Sac I think this is a trade that everybody gets value. 

    We save $ this year and have a an 11 mil and 2 mil expiring , get a vet PG that can help his 1 year and get a promising young shooting 2, we get a legit shot blocker(overpaid) and 2 picks.

    Den saves money this year and gets rid of McGee., and gets picks.

    Det gets an "elite" scorer and dumps Smith and gets more time for CKP and gives Munroe and Drummond a guy that can spread the floor.

    Sac gets RR and JS for Cousins and gets to keep Maclemore or Stuaskas.

    Again I don't want to trade Rondo but , if we were going to....

    Rajon-Hondo

    Do the Nuggets really want to get rid of McGee?

    Also, both G.Wallace and McGee have contracts that will expire in 2016.

    So I don't think the Nuggets actually save money by swapping McGee for Wallace and Joel Anthony.

    Re: Rondo to Sacramento is Real?

    If I'm Danny Ainge I'm not trading RR for all the junk Sacramento wants to send this way. Rondo is a star. McClemore is a back up SG. Celtics don't need another SG! Stauskas is the better option, if there is a deal to be made. I liked Jason Terry when he was here but again redundancy doesn't help the Celtics. Maybe they make the trade if Detroit is willing to part with Monroe and Sac departs with Stauskas and their first round pick this year, and Detroit send us their 2nd round pick in 2016.

    Re: Rondo to Sacramento is Real?

    I said it last week, but I don't think The Kings are an option anymore for a multitude of reasons. 

    1. We just signed Bradley to a four year contract. The only reason to acquire another SG is if they are a CLEAR upgrade and can convert Bradley into a super sub. Maclemore isn't that guy. Stauskas could turn into that guy but...

    2. The Kings are pretty set on keeping Stauskas. This is probably a big sticking point. This is also a big reason they are hot-to-trot to give up Maclemore, because everyone can see Stauskas has more promise.

    3. They just picked up Collison. This takes some of the desperation out of the negotiations. The Kings can be more patient and stingy with their offer because Collison is a decent starting PG, and they could just be like "Well we already have our guy..."

    4. They have to give up other assets to get Smith leaving them even less sweeteners to offer the Celtics. And Detriot doesn't really have anything we need either so a 3 team trade doesn't make it any more attractive to us.

    5. The Celtics would be the patsy team in this trade.  This trade helps The Kings get their big 3.5, Detroit fixes its logjam and saves itself some cash, and the Celtics are basically just doing the deal to jettison Rondo but it doesn't really help the Celtics to get better now, or later.

    Face facts... Sac is offering us junk cause that's all Rondo can merit. That's been the story for several years now, remember Brandon Knight?

    Teams dont value Rondo the way some Celtic fans do. It's why no superstars are tripping all over themselves to come to Boston to play with Rondo. No deals for big names have floated around involving Rondo. Danny missed pulling the trigger years ago and is now stuck with him.

    I dont know what the C's can do with Rondo at this point. Hope he returns healthy, hope he's put the effort into his shooting, esp FT's and busts his ^*$ all season playing team ball at both ends of the court. Maybe Danny can make a deal for him midseason for value with some playoff team

    I agree that Rondo's value isn't what we all wished it would be. But he should at least be able to return 1 good young prospect that plays a position of need. That is all Im looking for and expecting. A Center or small forward prospect under 23 that has shown some promise. Some guys that spring to mind are Tim Hardaway JR, Mason Plumlee, TJ Warren, Dieng in Minny, Nurkic maybe.  I mean I don't think holding out for at least one guy of this caliber is asking too much.

    The other school of thought is waiting until the trade deadline approaches when opposing GM's are under pressure to make a big splash as a final push.  I think this is the mostly likely scenario, some team loses its pg to injury that has a shot to go deep, or some team has an pg that is not performing. they feel pressure and overpay for Rondo.

    Face facts as you say this trade won't ever happen. Silly discussion.  We have a better chance of getting Love than the Kings do with this package.
