Re: Trade Rondo for Cousins and pick #5?????

well......it would certainly NOT be a "crummy Trade" for the Celtics.
that said, I see no reason why Sac/Sea woul dmake that deal.
Rondo is coming off major knee injury which makes him less valuable.
Cousin's may be a "problem child" that the New owners would prefer to dump.
so MAYBE a Cousins for Rondo deal could make sense for them, but I don't believe the contracts work alone.
I would prefer a Rondo for Horford deal in the off-season with Altanta.
The contracts are fairly close and if Atalanta re-signs Smith, adding his buddy Rondo makes could make sense to Ferry.
He might still be able to make a bid for Howard after re-signing Smith, depending on the deal.
Howard, Smith and Rondo would be a good start on paper at least.
The Celtics would be in great shape for a final run with Pierce and KG next year.
and still ahve a sold base on 2015 when our Hall of famers retire together:
McAdoo (next years #1 pick)
a first round pick for 2015
at least $10 Million in cap space to use on Free agent(s).
