Trading Rondo will rate as one of the biggest mistakess this organization ever made.  We are done if we trade him.  We might as well start rebuilding if we decide to trade him
LOL

I agree. If I only read the quote, without knowing the name, I would immediately think it's referring to Durant or James. Rondo is an excellent player, but he is nowhere as untouchable as some on the blog like to think.

I doubt Rondo's going anywhere.

I'd hope not.

Anything where Rondo leaves town, we might as well rebuild, IMO.
There is no way KG or Paul would be ok with a trade for Rondo even for Cousns they'd probably laugh and retire next year

Brandon Bass is a goner, that's all I know. With the emergance of Sullinger Bass is the odd man out seemingly.

I know everyone hates on Bass now but he is a decent offensive rebounder, his d is better now that Avery is there to stop penetration, and he has an awesome mid range jumper.
Youngish and a great guy too. If we trade him we sure as heck better get a better player back

Can't we just buy Krstic back from the Euro team he's on now?

Unless we're getting back Lebron, Durant or CP3, Rondo is not being moved.  If you want to move Rondo for anything resembling Cousins + Evans/Jimmer/Thomas etc.  you are not very good at running an NBA franchise.

I guess you can also add Westbrook and Curry to your short list

The Celtics find Rondo's personality to be too high-maintenance and his clashes with coach Doc Rivers remain an off-court distraction, sources told Broussard, and the front office is now actively pitching him to other teams. With the Celtics realizing they are no longer title contenders, they don't believe his point guard prowess is worth the headaches Rondo brings, sources say. And they do not want to build around him.

In December, the Celtics had discussions with Golden State about a Stephen Curry-for-Rondo deal, and one source says it was Golden State that decided against pulling the trigger. But Curry's recent ankle injuries, which have caused him several problems in his short career, have given the Celtics pause.

The potential trade is still being discussed by Boston's braintrust, but they aren't sure they want to go forward with it. It also isn't clear whether the Warriors would be willing to do it. Other players would have to be thrown in to make it work financially.


Also Broussard in Nov/11:

If Russel Westbrook is ever wearing a Celtics uniform I will be a sad man.

Plays the exact opposite of how I want my PG to play.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't a small deal this year.  However, with the 2 roster spots open now, I have a feeling Danny is leaning towards keeping this roster intact and filling with waived players (like every other year) or picking up someone who's not signed yet once he sees how the full team is playing.

C's definitely need another center that can play serviceable defense and rebound.  It'll be interesting to see how Danny fills that need.

The only thing I could see us doing is trading Bass to try and get an equal talent center that can either start and play 20 minutes a game or back up KG. Not sure how many players like that are out there.

But what big man could Bass and a first round pick get us?

Supposedly, we were gonna flip Curry to NO for Chris Paul.

And I never believed that OKC rumor, we had just completed the Perk/Jeff trade a couple of months earlier - there's CBA rules against reacquiring players that soon.

Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

TP for this man. Westbrook still makes such terrible decisions with the ball its wild.

There was one game I watched where Durant has a mis match in the post but instead Westbrook jacked up a three, got his own rebound off a clank, Durant still had the mismatch but Westbrook jacked up a shot as soon as he got the long rebound, clanked again, OKC got a second rebound, reset the offense to Westbrook, who looked to Durant with an ok i guess you can have your turn look, he still had his mismatch. Westbrook finally gave him the ball and Durant scored in less than 3 seconds.

Yeah Im with you on this.

Chris Broussard is an idiot. Believe nothing he says or "reports".

Woj from yahoo is the only one of these guys that has reported anything with any accuracy recently.

Don't get me started on "insider" sherrod blakely. Apparently kris joseph getting waived was to make room for a Demarcus cousins trade.

November 29th, 2011.

The CBA rules are against re-aquiring players if they are waived after they're traded. I don't believe there is anything against them being traded back.
