I would take him right now. If we could do something like Bradley/Bass/Melo and our pick for him. I would do it. Would be a pretty sweet team. Would need to sign some vets though. But Gordon would be a great part of the future. Pure scorer. Injuries are kinda scary though.

Thoughts re silly since they matched Phoenix's offer to keep him long term. Why trade him? Poor management here...

If they didn't match Phoenix's offer he would have walked for nothing. Now they can trade him to the highest bidder and get a good return for him.

Too injury prone to consider giving up some real assets for him, even if the potential is there for him to be great for us.

Yeah no. Pass big time. Too injury prone. Hasnt proved anything in this league to be worthy of a max contract. And trade Rondo for him? Ha.

I don''t understand all these "damaged goods" posts. He's young and he recovered from his injuries.

Are Rondo and Sullinger damaged goods?  Rose? Kevin Love? Rubio?  Heck, Rudy Gay missed a year with knee surgery too, he looks great.


You have to buy low on star players. If he's available for a discount we should do it.

Would the Celtics be a title contender this year with Eric Gordon here instead of Rondo?

Straight swap.

We're better without Rondo than with Eric Gordon.

I think people are calling him damaged goods due to him always getting injured, not just because of the last injury he got. With that said I pass.
