i don't really like anyone that much on Denver's roster.

I love the possibility of Bradley,KG, Faried on the same roster.
I'm not that high on Faried.  He's a small forward.  I don't get it.

Random and barely relevant:  I have Faried's autograph... my girlfriend got me some pack of basketball cards as a stocking stuffer and inside was his autographed card.  So at least if the Celtics traded for him, I might actually give a crap that I had his autographed card.  Lol.
He's a better rebounder than everyone on our team, and he also plays harder than 90% of our team and is a freak athlete (and we don't have many of those). I'd definitely like to see him on the Celtics but I think Denver is gonna hold onto him.

  At this point in time I don't know that he's a better rebounder than Sully.
They're very close by rebound rate.

I'm not sure which is a better team rebounder, Sullinger seems to have a better body for that defensively but I don't watch enough of Faried to know how well he does at that.
You mean Sully has better size right? Faried has better athleticism but Sully is two inches taller.

So Avery and KG can cover up for Faried's terrible defense?
Yeah. Playing a lot of minutes with KG would be very good for Faried's development certainly.

Faried is a positive impact player, but he's not the star that people seem to think just from the box scores.

I havent watch much of Faried but to my basic and novice knowledge on his game he is a glorified version of Leon Powe... Would that be a correct assumption or is that way off?

Way off, the two don't bare any resemblance in their game.

Faried is basically what Powe could have been had he never injured his knees in college, but with and addend degree or two of intensity.

Yeah better size and better body for boxing out. But I get blacked out of Nuggets league pass because the NBA is stupid so I don't get to watch Denver as often as I'd like.

Rondo/Collins for Stuckey/Monroe and their first rounder. 


Stuckey/Monroe gives Boston a much bigger team and they fit a half court style that Pierce, KG, JET, and Courtney Lee would all fit better in. 

Rondo and Knight would be a small backcourt but they would run all day.  With younger guys Drummond, Jerebko, and Singler coming up, that might not be a bad deal.

Ok thats what I thought. Plus it also seems that Faried is benefitting greatly from playing more minutes than Powe got.

Would love Monroe on our squad he is a beast. However, I am not trading Rondo under any circumstance.

Also I dont see why the Pistons would even think about trading Monore. He's their future. Monroe and Drummond are going to be a crazy good duo for them, and I read somewhere recently that the Pistons basically said Monroe and Drummond were both untouchable.

Agreed, that's as far as I'd go, don't agree with the previous comparisons. Faried is a player that relies a lot on energy, athleticism, and excessive motor that runs the floor very well.

Powe was a slow footed banger for the most part.

rumor: Rondo to Denver

http://www.examiner.com/article/boston-celtics-trade-rumors-rajon-rondo-trade-to-denver-nuggets-possible

Again its just a rumor and nothing to worry about yet, for you rondo fanatics

But i can see a trade like this possble. As the article mentions, Denver wants to win now. Their team is all about high octane offense vs strapping down and playing bradley like defense. Rondo would probably like this kind of system better

So the article doesn't mention who are the guys possible coming over here. My idea would be

To Denver: Rondo
To Bos: Lawson, Mozgov, 1st round pick

Lawson is considered a top 7 pg in the league. Unlike Rondo he can really shoot plus doing other pg duties really well.  He can't rebound like rondo but also won't let his man drive by as easy.

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

This is not a trade rumor. The Examiner is a Search Engine Optimization BS rag that re-purposes information and / or makes things up to sell ads.

There's nothing here.

First, I think that's a bad trade for us.

Second, the Denver stuff isn't a "rumor".  Rather, Chris Ford was asked what teams might be a good fit for a Rondo trade, and Ford speculated that Denver might fit.  However, there are no reports of trade negotiations actually taking place.

We had a thread on this a few days back.

This is not a rumor, it's a column based on a chat by Ford where he's simply speculating about courses of action that would make sense to him.

Nothing new or of import here.
