Why do you think Ainge would have traded Rondo for another draft pick? I don't see what any of the other teams in the top 10 would have traded for Rondo necessarily.
Kobe blowing by Gerald Wallace with ease. Lousy defense.That Wallace contract looks like the worst of the off-season right now.
Man to think that supposedly they potentially could have had Pierce instead on his current contract...
No kidding. Nets would be a legit contender in the East, Celtics would have Drummond, Barnes, or whatever Ainge got for trading Rondo after drafting Lillard.
At least Jeff Green is clearly not the worst contract of the off-season anymore, though!
I think he'd have taken either Drummond or Barnes instead.
Sorry, I guess I constructed my sentence badly.
What I meant is that we'd have had the #6 pick, with which I assume Ainge would have selected Barnes, Drummond, or perhaps Lillard.
If he had selected Lillard, I'm hypothesizing that perhaps he would have traded Rondo for some other piece. I don't know what that could have been. Obviously not worthwhile spending too much time thinking about it in any case.
Based on what we heard around the draft last summer, though, I'm pretty sure Ainge would have taken Barnes.
