OK, awful idea I guess. My point is that in the next few weeks we will see if the Celtics are better, worse, or the same without Rondo as they are with him. If we are better, or even the same, there is no reason to keep him.
So if the Celtics continue to play well without him I wouldn't be surprised if is is traded despite his injury. Maybe work out a trade for Demarcus Cousins instead. His name has been thrown around in trade talks but I haven;t seen Rondo's name in it. If we throw Rondo in the equation, maybe that will get us closer to a deal.
