    Rondo in L.A.?

    What do you think about the C's trading Rondo to the Lakers for their 1st rnd pick (top 5 probably). And starting over with Dante Exum or Marcus Smart?

    Don't want Smart, and Exum has said that he only wants to play for the Lakers.

    What team would be stupid enough to trade a ~#6 pick for Rondo with all his problems, and the fact Rondo won't sign until he's a FA so he can max out the years and the money?


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. 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.”

    Kobe is ball dominant.

    Kobe loves Rondo. I think the Lakers would entertain a Rondo for draft pick, although I would not do it unless we got a top 3 pick. We'd probably have to take back Steve Nash's contract though...but for 1 year I could live with it.

    Rondo for Top 3 pick and nash? YES

    Lakers want to turn it around next year so I could see them trading the pick, absolutely.

    In no world real or imagined would the Lakers deal a top 3 pick for Rondo even if getting rid of Nash for a year. Utterly ridiculous.

    OTOH, if the Lakers had say #3 and #11, they would deal #11 (if they wanted Rondo) if Rondo signed an extension (which he won't), and the Celts would have to be morons to turn it down. Plus we'd have 3 years before that pick gets expensive to use that slot that Nash occupied for 1 year.

    As so often is the case otherwise reasonable basketball minds lose all sense of objectivity when valuing Celtic players.

    Isn't there talk of D'Antoni staying in LA...??? If so, Rondo wouldn't fit in his type of uptempo offense...

    His prima donna attitude that he is showing to essentially force his way to the Lakers is enough for me to pass. Even if he did suck it up for his rookie contract, how could the team rest easy knowing his strong desire to play for the Lakers? If some other team wants to take that risk, good luck. I would much rather draft a kid who is ready to come in and go to work regardless of what team he is drafted to. Definitely has the skills and potential to be one of the best players in this draft, but being an 18 year old and making demands like that doesn't seem to be worth the risk in my opinion. The Timberwolves have been lucky so far with Rubio after a similar desire to play for one team, but that can't automatically translate into Exum doing the same thing.

    We may have the Lakers by the short ones now. We get #4 and Parker stays in the draft and Exum is OURS - to trade to the Lakers - and we should be able to extract a mighty price on them for it. Since the Lakers have basically zero players to trade, it'll have to be a pick(s).

    Very wishful thinking. I would have a hard time seeing anyone giving up a top 10-15 pick in this years draft for rondo never mind a potential top 5.
