Do you see the Celtics making any trades as the deadline nears?
Chad Ford  (1:23 PM)

Yes. I would put them up there with the Rockets, Grizzlies and Lakers as the most active teams right now. I'd be shocked if they didn't get something done. May or may not include Rondo, but the Celtics are looking for a youngish player to fill out their front line.

This chat was from yesterday (1/9). Do you really think Danny would make a move as major as trading Rondo if this team continues to win and play well?

If Kings are really being sold, don't expect them to make any moves before the deadline.  The new ownership group is likely going to want to evaluate their roster and design their own strategy.

I'd hope not.

Anything where Rondo leaves town, we might as well rebuild, IMO.

I would be shocked if Rondo was traded. He's been hurt a lot this year, leads the league in assists and is on a reasonable contract.

kings would rather take Bradley and Sully vs Rondo alone for cousins

But i will tell you one thing, Sac is going to make a huge change to their lineup by the trade deadline. They have to win right now, or else keep losing like they always do, have empty seats and get ready to move to seattle.

They have a dysfunctional team imo ,need new players and a decent pg.

Gone by trade deadline if possible - Evans, Salmons, Fredette, Marcus Thornton, thomas,chuck hayes, outlaw, garcia

gone only if its a deal they can't refuse: Cousins

Keepers: Thomas Robinson and Jason Thompson

These three guys, are the main guys they can build around. But man all of those players that need to be gone by trade deadline either are mediocre players or have some salary baggage tied to them. You almost have to deal cousins so, that you can have somebody take these guys too.

If we kept losing or playing 500 even with bradley , but bradley and sully (trade pieces) did quite well, i think we would be one of the teams definitely in line to get Cousins/Evans. But then we would also have to take on a Salmons, Hayes, Garcia, who knows.

But right now, i would be shocked danny would even trade bradley and sully for cousins.

A few teams i see having some nice pieces and making a run at cousins/evans

1. Denver : Cousins , Evans + pieces above
to Sac: Mcgee, Lawson , Chandler, Fournier + 1st round pick

2. Houston: Cousins , Evans + pieces above
to sac: Donatas Motiejunas, Toney Douglas, Royce White , Parsons , Patterson

Sac needs a decent pg as one of the key piece back.

Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.

Agreed. I don't think Pierce and especially Garnett would take a Rondo-trade too well. Rondo may possibly get dealt when Pierce and Garnett retire. Rondo thrives in the postseason and makes Celtics playoff games fun as heck to watch.

I'd prefer to send Bass and Green, along with a pick or two, out at this point.

This. When healthy, Rondo has been a top 3 postseason performer over the last 5 years. That's not something to ignore.
