I don't understand why people are arguing about who is better, PP or Green. The argument is basically irrelevant. IMO, whether PP and/or KG are traded has much less to do with player evals and everything to do with Rondo's ACL and the new CBA.
This time it's different.
The 2007-2013 run is over. There's no getting around it. As currently constituted, there is no title shot this season nor next. Yes, Rondo will play next season, but at diminished capacity. PP, KG, and Terry will all be a year older. The Cs will be worse, not better.
Rondo's ACL tear couldn't come at a worse time. Next season, PP will be in his contract year and Rondo is missing some of his prime years. This season is lost for Rondo and next season he will still be recovering. By the time Rondo is back at 100% for the 14/15 season, he will be 28/29 and in the last year of his contract. KG;s contract year to.
If Rondo recovers to the expected 100% then he will rightly demand/deserve a max deal, 16-20 million a year for 5 years. Do Danny and Wyc want to pony up $110 million to Rondo? Does Danny believe that Rondo will be a max-deserving playing at 32, 33, or 34 y/o? These are the issue that the Cs front office are dealing with. What happens to PP & KG will be a result of their decision on how to deal with Rondo.
Add to the this that the new CBA is very restrictive to over-the-cap teams and VERY harshly penalizing to over the tax teams. The Cs have to be very careful on who they spend their $$$ on. For Example, the Cs somehow do a s&t for Josh Smith and extend Rondo at the max, roughly 50% of the tax threshold. The Cs will have little latitude to do anything if either of those player fail to play to their expected levels.
For these reasons, I believe everyone on the Cs roster is fair game to be traded and probably will be traded.
If Danny & Wyc don't believe Rondo is a max player, he may be moved this summer or by next. Keeping PP & KG around for that doesn't make much sense... except to sell tickets to a 35-40 win team.
Perhaps, without PP & KG, Danny will tell Rondo to not rush back, tanking the season in an effort to land Wiggins or Parker.
The only ways that I can see both PP & KG sticking around is if one of these 3 happen:
1 - There are no legit deals for either of them. Even in this case, KG may retire or PP is bought out of his contract for whatever reason.
2 - Danny trades Rondo for some immediate help, e.g. Rondo for Cousins and Thomas. Danny wants to keep PP & KG around to keep Cousins in-line and show him what it takes to win.
3 - Danny fleas another GM out of a prime asset for very little, e.g. Kahn trading Big Al to Utah for next to nothing or Morey netting TRob for spare parts and $$$. This is of course the dream. Rondo, PP, KG, and a shiny new player. This is however, the least likely of the three.
