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?
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.
