We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

Very well-reasoned analysis from a Celts fan right there.
    Thanks - on the Celtic board I'm branded a Rondo hater.

    Unless the player is in the last year of his deal and the teams knows it can't resign him (or doesn't want to).

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    Minny needs a 2 guard.
    Thats a sensible trade for sure.

    Prolly the best bet for actually happening.

    True, those extra years are hard to swallow. Tried to find one involving Bargs and any other albatross contract they have but Celtics dont have any expirings. They are in a tough position. Cant rebuild with so many bad contracts and they cant compete either. They have to go all in or unload some stars so that they can get rid of bad contracts.

    "It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)

    Why do the Celts want old retread point guards?

    Much more interested in dealing Pierce, Terry, and Bass in 3 ways, and getting back a Bledsoe (so Rondo can be dealt next year), and a big looking for a max extension such as Jefferson.

    Getting into the 8th, 7th, or 6th seed this year is a ticket for a one and done. My idea puts them in the lottery - although no very high up this year.

    The PP/KG team is done, and it's been done since they lost the Finals to the Lakers. Please don't bring up last year with Rose and Bosh being the primary reason they got to game 7 of the ECF last year. A very meh Philly team took them to 7 for goodness sakes.
    You wouldn't push the trigger on this would you?

    Boston has nothing to offer. I wouldn't want Green, Sullinger or Bradley. These are all just role players and not very versatile ones either. The only way any trade for Lowry would make sense is if they offered Rondo lol

    I don't think TOR can get anymore than a role player for Lowry.

    But Green & Bradley not versatile? How so? Green can play the 3 or 4, Bradley can play the 1 or 2.

    The only player the Raps may be interested in is Jeff Green - but then again, the terms of his contract will be an issue.

    You're right with Green versatile was not the right word to use. I guess I would say he is kind of pointless for the Raptors. We allready have too many PF's so his ability to play the 4 is kind of wasted. He's also not a great pure shooter, more like a better Landry Fields type player. We allready have at least one guy like that. Plus, he is making 10 million a year and has heart issues. I see no real positives here.

    Sullinger can play the 4. I guess he has potential but i'm just not particularly that high on him.

    Also, it really depends on the team in question. I do believe that they could potentially get a high draft pick for Lowry. Who knows, they haven't really explored the trade market yet.

    Boston would eat Calderon alive within a month if he gets traded there, he plays 0 defense and dribbles the air out of the ball holding it way way way to long looking for an open man where Boston is all about ball movement, only reason Calderon is doing ok right now is because he has the green light from BC and cant do no wrong they treat him like a superstar.

    Good point, and not only that, I think people forget just how much of Calderons assists come from fast breaks and quick transition baskets. In Boston this wouldn't be happening too much, considering their main players are 50 years old. I think his true weaknesses would show much more in a very slow system like Bostons.
