Fafnir,You are just incorrect. In 2010/2011 he shot 44.6%FG/ 40.1% from long range, and 80.2% at the line. In 2011/2012 he shot 42.7/37.7/ and 80.7. In 2012/2013 he is shooting 39.3/34.3/ and 90.4. Yes he is down this year, but he is averaging the MOST assists by FAR in his career and is shooting over 90% at the line. Yes, 39.3% is not good, but how many open looks is he getting on this Magic team.
Flip Nelson's contract to a third team.
So you state I'm incorrect and then you quote his shooting percentages that are declining like I said over the past three years?
There will definitely be better deals to be made this summer for Rondo than this one.
So, Fafnir, averaging 37% from three over the last three years is horrible and declining? Shooting 90+% at the line THIS year is declining? Averaging by far his most assists EVER is declining?Paying a +16 PG (while on a terrible team) $8 million for ONE stinking year is NOT that bad, especially if it means we get Big V.What exactly does everyone think we can get for Rondo coming off a partial ACL tear? Please post some plausible trade ideas, because I will be surprised if RR is in green after next year's trade deadline.Smitty
Everyone on here knows I am not opposed to trading Rondo and I do like Vucevic, but Vucevic alone is not enough for Rondo (I know Nelson is in the trade, but I just consider him a throw in). If it was something like Vucevic and Afflalo, I'd think pretty hard about it (I'd still want more of course, but I'd certainly think long and hard about it). Say it is just Vucevic and Afflalo, I think that gives Boston a better shot at winning next year and adds a potential great young center for the future (as well as a solid guard in the same general age range as Rondo)Guards - Bradley, Afflalo, Lee, TerryWings - Pierce, GreenBigs - Garnett, Vucevic, Sullinger, BassPretty solid team for the next couple of years and when PP, KG, JT, and BB all come off the books, there is still a nice youngish core in Bradley, Afflalo, Lee, Green, Vucevic, and Sullinger.
