I don't think this rumor is legit, but I think this trade—if it happened—combined with the Pierce-Gasol-Gay trade in another thread, would give us an intriguing lineup:
Youth and speed in the backcourt, good length, defense, and rebounding up front, just have to find a backup 3.
I know we're all just here discussing and exchanging ideas, but, I just don't understand why people do this?
By "this", I mean, concocting trades that involve Pierce and Rondo, yet still have KG included in our roster. Do people really think KG would accept playing with a roster like the one you propose?
I don't mean to be condescending, it's just this train of thought really boggles my mind.
I'd have to believe any trade that sends out Pierce, and likely Rondo as well, would seriously make KG angry and cause him to say "no thanks, I'm done".
KG isn't just loyal to the team, the jersey, he's loyal to the teammates he's been to battle with. Pierce and Rondo are his "soldiers".
