View Full Version : Does a Rondo trade make sense for anyone?

Rumors has it that Rondo is one of the most available players right now. He's obviously unfit until next season. But does it makes sense for any team to trade and wait for him to return next season.

According to me there are a few suitors:

Phoenix - The team is not going anywhere. Trade Dragic + filler for Rondo. Also Gortat to OKC and just all out tank this season. Get a high pick. And return next season with Rondo and a draft star like Shabazz or Benett or McLemore.

Something like this

Rondo
Lamb
Shabazz/Bennett
Scola
Perkins

Sacramento:
The team is going nowhere but Seattle. Trade Tyreke + Jimmer for Rondo.
You get to Seattle with a bonafide star in Rondo + Boogie + eventual top 5 draft pick. That's a good core.

BOS isn't moving Rondo for Dragic and fillers. It would either be for pieces that make us a legit contender this year or for young players/picks that help in rebuilding. Moving him for Dragic doesn't make us significantly better this year and it takes away the best asset we have moving forward.

I don't see a scenario where a Rondo trade makes sense for both teams.

When you're trying to move a player with an ACL injury you are not negotiating from a place where you have leverage.

Boston tried to deal PP and KG and was unsuccessful. Now only option is to deal a crocked Rondo to challenge one last year.

We'd have to get Dragic, Gortat, and maybe something else for it to be a fair trade.

But trading Rondo for the package you listed doesn't make us a contender this year. So we can keep our valuable future asset and not compete this year or give him away for pennies on the dollar and still not compete this year. Seems like an easy choice to me...

Yeah no, I don't see any of these things going down. People were low-balling the celtics when rondo was healthy. Don't think those deals are getting any better. Don't see the suns getting rondo for dragic and a bag o Doritos. Or the kings getting him for tyreke and some rainbow Jimmy's.

Here is one deal that makes great sense (idk if the money matchs up) Rondo for Russell Westbrook. Rondo would upgrade the OKC offense because KD is the #1 option without a doubt and no PG wants to be the #1 guy like Westbrook does in OKC. Rondo can make players around him better with his elite passing skills. In return, the Celtics get a building block in Westbrook who can score and pass decently. Westbrook is young and he could mature well if KG and Paul Pierce stay as Celtics next year. The Celtics still have an elite PG/SG tweener without having to sacrafice much in Rondo. Good move for both sides for rebuilding and building a championship contender.

Rondo and KD wouldn't work.

How about John Wall- Crawford and Ariza-Okefor for Rondo.

why would Washington trade a better playmaking PG?

Are you serious?.

EDIT: Ok you are. Wall IQ for Asst is not good he turns the ball over alot and jump shot skills are not good. And no Rondo a better play maker .........Period. Not to sound rude or nothing i hate typing but Wall is an up and down for WSh and rondo is a much bigger improvement in my eyes IDK about other wiz fans but time for a change.

I hope Rondo gets dealt. I really do.

Give me a center and a point guard for him and a pick.

Last year I said Rondo for Westbrook would make sense for both teams. This year I think Rondo for Howard would.

Jefferson, Tinsley/Watson, and a 1st for Rondo. He's hurt, not sure you can ask for much more at this point.

If Utah was willing to give up Al Jeff for Rondo, I think they'd have him by now.

First off, the Kings aren't going anywhere, and 2nd, I think Boston and NOLA should make a trade

Gordon 4 Rondo, and here's why it makes sense.

Boston receives a guard who has star potential and plays at a high level, when he plays of course, and it keeps them in contention now, while making a big step towards the future.

NOLA receives a stud for a PG and who better to throw ally oops to their cornerstone in Anthony Davis? NOLA also gets to tank this season season, collect a high draft pick and start on a high note next season with

Top 5 pick+ AD+ Rondo, and good surrounding piece in Ryan Anderson, plus it allows them to flip Vasquez for some pieces, or a draft pick why his value is high.

yeah there arent a whole lot of trades that make sense right now since rondo is hurt, maybe a team that is completely out of contention, and that has a couple high potential players to get rid of, NOLA kind of makes sense, maybe gordon vazquez for rondo? or gordon aminu for rondo?

Rondo is so overrated it's ridiculous. And it sucks because Ainge can't sell a good deal to the fan base for him because so many Celtics fans and even other fans think he's worth so much more than he is. So when you try to talk about trades based on his skills as a player, the unsupported reputation as a player he's managed to garner sends people into a tirade.

Rondo is a good player, a very good player. But he isn't THAT GOOD!!!

^^ i see that your a PATS fan, so you must also watch a lot of celtic games as well; the dude is a walking triple double, if he gets his jumper down, hed be very very dangerous, albeit, what would your utah-bos trade consist of ? not jefferson for rondo straight up, no way in hell boston does that

Rondo couldn't shoot in college. He's 6 years into his NBA career and he still can't shoot. Why do people still say "if he can get his jumper down"... it's not happening. He is what he is. He's not efficient enough a scorer to ever be as ball dominant a player as he is on a championship team. Rondo in theory creates easy shots for others, but few NBA players today move well enough without the ball where you could even build a contending offense around someone whose scoring ability teams don't respect creating shots for others.

Yes, just because LeBron James - the best player in the NBA for about a half-decade now - developed a shot later in his career, means that anyone can!

Have you see Rondo shoot? It's UGLY. LeBron has ALWAYS been better from mid-range and three than Rondo. There is literally no reason to think that he will magically get better, and saying "LeBron did it, so can he!" is not an argument.



A Rondo trade makes sense for the Celtics. Whether it makes sense for another team, it depends. But Boston should move on from him.
