Did you guys see Rubio's assist to Steamer the other night?


He's a one-of-a-kind passer with great court vision who doesn't shoot very well. He's also very young, with plenty of time to improve.


Gee, that sounds like something I've heard a lot the last few years... ;)
Rubio is pistol pete without the shooting.  I do not however view him as I first did Rondo ie a huge ceiling.  Rondo is still improving in big strides and looking like a guy that could AVERAGE close to a triple double and be a very good defender.  Ricky has the offensive game and amazing court vision but he doesn't have all the tools to be great, especially in this point guard dominated league.  Hopefully he can fully recover from his knee injury as his passing is good for basketball in general.

Try this

Rondo and Bass to Cleveland for
Irving and Varaejo

not bad sadly varejaos injuries worries me toooooo much

lol this is a joke right?

If we were giving a value worth:

Rondo 9
Bass 3

Irving 8
Varagina 9

on top of that, good defensive bigs who can rebound and score are at a premium in the NBA.  point guards are a dime a dozen.  now rondo is a very special pg, but the drop off of getting a vet PG (Barbosa) is not nearly as big as a vet min big (Darko/Collins).  on top of that, the premium bigs get paid a heck of a lot more and Varagina is on a dirt cheap contract. he's barely getting paid anymore than Asik is right now and Varagina is twice the player that Asik is in every aspect of the game.

even if they didn't have Lillard, i doubt POR would trade Aldridge for Rondo. NOH would clearly not trade Davis for Rondo.

How about one of these deals with Milwaukee:

Rondo for Jennings, Larry Sanders and Mbah a Moute....or..

Rondo and Lee for Ellis, Sanders and Mbah a Moute ...or...

Rondo and Bass for Ellis, Sanders and Mbah a Moute?

Rondo doesn't net you Jennings plus two players, especially one being Sanders.

For the rest, Bucks would not be willing to make a 1-2 out of Rondo and Jennings, so, they'd say no.

Dead wrong. Milwaukee would take deal one, then when the papers came through, the whole front office would record their own remake of the "Super Bowl Shuffle" at the Karaoke Bar while doing copious Jagerbombs toasting Danny Ainge, then post it to YouTube.

One problem for them: the Cs would never consider it.

Interesting that two posters view Rondo for Jennings, Sanders and Mbah a Moute as so one-sided....but one poster thinks that it's one-sided favoring the  Bucks and the other the Cs.

Maybe that means it's a balanced trade.

Bucks may lose Jennings for nothing at season's end. To get Rondo would obviously be huge....BUT....they need to give to get, so Sanders/Mbah a Moute is the price. Throw in a 1st, either way to make it work.

We get a legit, talented scoring point guard in Jennings who is a decent defender and whose assists will go up with this team. We get a young athletic rebounder  and rim protector in Sanders who could be with us for years and an athletic 3 in Mbah a Moute who is an excellent defender and is coming around offensively.

It would take a lot for me. There are less than 10 guys in the NBA that I'd consider trading Rondo straight up for. Think KD/LBJ/CP3/Kyrie/Rose. I fundamentally believe Rondo is on their level skill-wise. Now remember that no GM in their right might would make that swap.

There are, however, combinations that intrigue me:

Evans/Cousins
Drummond/Monroe
Curry/Barnes (or Thompson if you're worried about Curry's ankles)
Conley/Gay
Jennings/LRMM/Sanders
Rubio/Love
Wall/Beal

I guess my point is that if we can move a superstar in Rondo for two (likely) all-stars then I'm listening. Again most GMs wouldn't do something like this but stranger things have happened for sure.

Now go ahead and say I have homer-love for Rondo and way over-value him :) I do-do-do-do-do!

Trade Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green

Receive Eric Gordon, Robin Lopez and Austin Rivers


Doc gets to coach his son, although he would never play him because he is a rookie.

Big Trade

Boston Out - Rondo, Melo, Collins, Sullinger and Bradley
Boston IN- Cousins, Evans, Dragic

Phoenix Out- Gortat and Dragic
Phoenix IN- Rondo, Melo, Collins

Sacramento Out- Cousins, Evans
Sacramento In- Gortat, Sullinger, Bradley

I like it, alsoas a side trade we send Courtney Lee to Minnesota for Derrick Williams.  They need a SG that can play defense and we take a flyer on Willams.
