No way. Terrible idea for me. Big Al don't play no d.
Rondo doesn't either unless he's guarding Lebron or Carmelo & his Napolean complex comes out!

He guards the lanes, bro

No he looks for steals & poke outs from behind, thats not exactly good defense! Any PG gets right around him on the regular which is concerning for a player with Rondo's quickness,speed,arm-length.

Build around Bradley and Sullinger is a great plan if you want us to get the number one pick and being in the lottery.

Pretty sure I'd be tempted by a trade like this:
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine/?tradeId=at4k9qp

Rondo, Barbosa, Collins, Bass, Fab Melo

for

Jefferson, Kanter, Hayward


You improve your chances greatly to win this year, while acquiring young assets at the same time that should help build your future one way or another.

I see it as the best of both worlds.

You fill wasted roster spaces of injured players with actual healthy players, and still have a lot of room on your roster to sign other players.

We couldn't get both bigs & Hayward for that assortment of trash! Wish we could but Utah would tell us never ever ring their lines again.

LOL, I agree. But by the same token, it depends on what kind of offers they're getting for Jefferson, someone they seem reluctant to go forward with. And through it all you're getting a premiere PG of the league, despite his partial tear in the ACL, at a discount price which will help keep your salaries low.

Personally, I don't think they're too enamored at paying 4 million+ a year for someone like Kanter, Hayward is good talent for the money, but that's the price one pays to try and acquire players who may change the face of your franchise. Melo sucks, but still a worthwhile project at a low cost to replace Kanter for them.

And there are always picks involved in these sorts of things, and it depends on how teams value them.

we couldn't get Perk for Lee! They have Martin & Lamb as backups & they wouldnt need another SG.

This is just sad. Some people on here didn't want to move him for cp3, and now people are happy to move him for an above average big. Just plain pathetic.

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.

  No he doesn't, just some good players.

Let Bradley do that. Rondos arms and hands were made for the lanes... Lee and Bradley can be on-ball defenders

  That probably explains his being on the all-defense team 4 years in a row. The coaches vote on those teams, don't they?

Not worried about Jefferson's defense, he'll be more than fine next to KG, and he'll be awesome on offense for us.

Since Al Jefferson left Boston, Rajon Rondo has won 53 playoff games as a member of the Celtics.  Al Jefferson has won zero playoff games in that time as a Timberwolf and a Jazz.

I understand that this is a bit of a cheeky stat to throw out when comparing individual players, but still . . . wow!!
