Straight up, does a Rondo for Al Jefferson trade make us better long term?

I personally would love a starting lineup of Bradley, Lee, Green, Sullinger, and Jefferson.  The next step in my rebuilding would be to land a better starting shooting guard than Lee in a trade or signing in the offseason.  Sullinger can hit the outside shot and having a good scoring center alongside him will help him with match ups.  Since Avery can play point or shooting guard you have some flexibility in your signings.

A few free agents they could land might be:

JJ Redick (Very doable and I think a good fit)
Josh Smith (could Happen)
Chris Paul (not happening)
Jrue Holiday

So, do you you trade Rondo for Jefferson and sign or trade for a new guard?

Something about Rondo for Big Al just screams bad trade to me...

Minor tweaks of draft picks, or getting back something for Bass might be in the deal, but just that being the focus of the trade I would like the direction.

I would do Rondo for AL but I don't think it works financially.

Works on the trade checker.  You mean long term planning?

I think the main thing after doing something like this would be trading Bass because we'd have NO use for him next year, and very minimal beyond that.

mediocre team for years. jrue holiday is not a free agent. do you mean jennings? and only reason josh smith would sign as a free agent would be if rondo was here. not to pay high taxes and play with such team you mentioned.

  That team's got all the upside of the Bucks or possibly the Pacers if you took George off the team.

Rondo's future was brighter than big Al's back in the summer  of '07.  It still is.

Rondo has a bright future but he needs great shooters around him.  He has had arguably the best 3-point shooter ever in Ray Allen, and the best shooting center ever in KG.  Jeff Green isn't a great shooter (although good) but he is a great player in open space and can guard 3 positions.  Bradley is not a great shooter either. 

I think it is a lot easier to get a very good center and another good guard than it is to rebuild around Rondo.

If Utah would do it its a no brainer to me. 20pts 10rebs while sharing minutes can only increase with BIG minutes here. On top of that its exactly what we need is an inside offensive threat in a very weak East with a lack of BIGS. Bye Rondo would be my reply!

Just had to read the thread to see who proposed this ridiculous trade. Unbeleivable.

And this thing is crazy, Rondo is worth WAY more than Mr. J
Jeff Green - Top 5 SF

Rondo doesn't either unless he's guarding Lebron or Carmelo & his Napolean complex comes out!
