what would be do with Bledsoe anyway? He's a FA this summer. We would have to either pay up to re-sign him knowing Rondo comes back in October, or let him go and basically trade Pierce for a half season rental of Bledsoe, which is useless because if we trade Pierce now, the rest of this season is over.

The idea, I'm sure, would be to re-sign him.  I don't think he's established his value enough that we could expect him to demand a ton of money.  Maybe give him a big one year deal to prove his value, considering he'd probably play a large role with Rondo working his way back most of next season.

He won't re-sign to back up Rondo. Regardless of the amount of money, he will take a starting job somewhere next year, he's ready for it. So we either sign him and trade Rondo or we let him walk if we trade Pierce for him.

Presumably the trade would be Odom, Butler, and Bledsoe, which isn't a bad trade for Boston.  Butler is a respectable starting SF, Odom provides much needed size (and is expiring), and Bledsoe could step in immediately as the starting PG.  If Bledsoe lights it up, then you can lock him up long term and move Rondo, who you could get a lot for.
