    I doubt Rondo will be traded.

    He is good and cheap, and he plays well in the playoffs.

    There isn't any reason not to trade him.

    Those that think he is good should want him traded because he could get some draft picks in a trade and if he is good enough the Celtics would not tank sufficiently.

    Those that think he is bad should want him traded because...they think he is bad.

    The problem with that statement is that his contract will be up at years-end and he will be not be cheap to resign, and we're not gonna make the playoffs so that part is irelevent, and finally, whether he is good or not is debateable and relative to whom compared with...other than that you're right on!!! except the doubting that he will be traded part too.  I'm counting on trading Rondo to get our quality big man.

    bill was speculating about rondo getting a max contract in exchange for his willingness to not play for a year and a half. how feasible a notion is that?

    Feasible is not the right word.  Ridiculous is more appropriate.  I have no respect for Bill.  Minimal  BBall knowledge and no credibility whatsoever.   He is worse than some of the trolls around here.

    If a team offers a pick in the top 5 of the 2014 Draft, Ainge will pull the trigger.

    That's the only way Rondo gets traded.

    Forget it , we have tried before , no one will give even close value for him.  We need a point at this time and I think he can fit with this team if he wants.   A motivated Rondo with this team and we are on our way.  With him we are just a player or two away from having a good team.

    Can we make a deal with Rondo to trade him for a top5 pick in 2014, then have him come back instead of resigning with the team he's traded to?

    YES

    Check my post again.

     

    I said "IF", right?

    Did I say Rondo is worth a top 5 pick?

     

    Of course IF a team offers a top 5 pick it's a no-brainer.

     

    One thing's for sure, with or without Rondo, the Celtics have a brighter future than the Lakers.

    Thanks, Jimmy!

    To win in the NBA you need a good PG and a good Center. We have 1/2 of that. Why would we opt to have zero? They will keep Rondo and look for a Center or at least a PF that can play center effectively.

    Thanks for making the point D-Fury.  When Rondo comes back we will see if the C's running and ball-movement style offense, with Sullinger/KO as fine frontcourt passers, can mesh with Rondo pushing the pace.   If the combination works, Brad will not want to trade Rondo.  Bill Simmons has never predicted Jack that I can remember.  Great to see him finally come out on the ledge.  He even has missed on what a great passer and team player KO is at 7 feet after it was clear to see at summer league.

    Hi,

    Bill Simmons decided to sacrificed common sense for popularity. He knows that RR is a very volatile subject. So, if says something about him it'll bring quite a few viewers/readers; if he says something outrageous it'll bring huge crowd of viewers/reader.

    The common sense, expanding on dfury's comment, is this. Danny's goal is to create a title contending team once again in as little time as possible. The best way to do it is to create a core of 3-4 star level players and add several role players around it. Now, what's easier: to add 3 players or to add 2 players? BTW, BS' analogy about building a house is very lame - we're talking about building a NBA team of highest level.

    Of course, this argument goes down the drain if DA's goal is to create a mediocre team or, create a contending team in 15-20 years.

    So true Sinus.  You normally need to get 3 complementary stars. Back in "the dark days", the C's just had Pierce, and every year we would hope Ron Mercer, Chauncey, Kenny Anderson, or Employee #8 would join him to get the C's to 2 stars.  Finally, Danny gave up and traded for Ray so he had the 2 stars needed to woo a guy like KG.  Danny has got to hope Rondo can be joined by a Sully/KO or 2014 lottery pick to get the C's back in competition.
