We should keep Rondo and I want no parts of Jameer Nelson

Exactly! I don't want Nelson on the Celtics.

At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Once RR proves he is healthy, would the Magic consider this trade?  They need a marquee draw in Orlando and Rajon could be that draw:-))

This works on realgm:

Thoughts?

I like it but I am not sure Orlando does it as Vucevic could end up becoming a very, very good center.

A question to others - What do you realistically think other teams would be willing to deal for Rondo, especially after coming back from an ACL tear?

If you're holding out for a Kevin Durant or Lebron James, it ain't happening.

If we aren't getting better packages back than this, then he shouldn't be traded. 

Why would we want to sell low?

If we're trading with Orlando, we should try to get Andrew Nicholson.  Dude's a stud.

Can we also get a bag of peanuts in this trade?

Wow. Threads line this are like spitting on Rondo. A decent big man and a washed up,  aging point guard for rondo. No thanks

Read that last line again. One more time.

Can we turn it into a three-way deal so we can get Kevin Durant too?

I like Vucevic (good young big) but he's not enough to take on Nelson. Vucevic, Affalo and a first would be better.

One interesting hypothetical to me is, if the 76ers didn't have PG locked down by Jrue Holiday (or if you could work out a three-way with a team that needs a PG), who would be willing to deal Rondo in a sign-and-trade for Andrew Bynum?  Or, if you have an negative emotional reaction to Bynum, what about the hypothetical of Rondo for a big with All-Star potential if healthy but with health that is as questionable as someone like Bynum or maybe Andrew Bogut?

If I was to trade rondo, I'd want some players back that can actually make it onto the court to play.

Interesting hypothetical. Don't be surprised if this summer we hear more rumors of Rondo being dealt to the Lakers for Pau Gasol. Sounds like Kobe is high on Rondo, and LA usually trades for or signs whatever player Kobe wants.

Assumingly, Nash would move to back up at 40 years old.

If the Celts get Gasol, don't be surprised to see KG and Paul come back next year. I like a KG, Paul and Gasol trio alot more than KG, Pierce and Rondo.

In theory Rondo for a big, yes depending on the big.

As overrated as Rondo is... you really can't get any more "overrated" than Jameer Nelson.  I have him as possibly the worst all-star selection of all time.

Agreed.

I am all for moving the vastly overrated Rondo - but this deal isn't enough in return.
