it makes sense to move all. Gordon has been unhappy in NO, Evans might have his stock at it's highest right now, Rondo it depends what HOU or whoever else offers Ainge.

Keeps him calm. I also believe Rondo is gone. B/c I don't see the Celtics rebuilding w/ him. I see them trying to get more picks or younger players. There's a reason Ainge is getting all these 1st rd. picks and is looking to clean cap.

Gordon is a bit easier since I don't think NO is going to demand much for him.

I don't think so. Pistons need defense and floor spacing. With KCP already playing defense so well a Rondo/KCP backcourt with a Smith/Drummond Frontcourt should make for a good defensive team. Also it gets Singler in the starting lineup who is playing really good this year.

Rondo
KCP
Singler
Smith
Drummond

And you'd probably need a 3 team deal with Lin involved and I don't think you can get a good deal involving Lin.

I also think its a bit late for the Celtics to get proper value for Rondo, they needed to trade him after the Nets trade to get proper value.

Based on what I've heard from what Boston is wanting, they'd probably ask for Lin, Asik and at least 1-2 future first rounders. I don't think Rondo is worth that, and I don't think he's a good fit in a backcourt with Harden at all.

Eww... No. The Rockets are not going to pay $30 million over the next two years for Gordon to sit on their bench and kill their cap. From a talent perspective, that deal makes sense, but why in the hell do you make that deal if you're Houston? Completely nonsensical.

Im not fan of this. I think that we should keep Monroe + Drummond together and built on this duo. Keep Jennings and try to deal Smith (or Stuckey, Bynum etc.) for true SF with defense and add some 3point specialist. But with our FO i doubt it

The Hornets want Terrence Jones? It's quite possible. I'm sure a lot of teams want Terrence Jones, but my point is that the Rockets don't want or need Eric Gordon. The guy is undoubtedly a talented player when healthy, but he's signed to a horrible contract, he can't play point guard and it makes zero sense for the Rockets to pay $15 million a year to a guy who plays the same position as their best player.

Jones is a good energy player, but he too will have growing pains. Talented but in McHale's system which is high pick n' roll and crashing the key, he looks better than he really is. He is talented tho.

I just don't see why the Celtics would even want Lin....seems like a terrible move on there part and what they want today is not what they will accept and the deadline. People know Boston needs to trade him now so they won't get as much as they could have when its not a desperate rebuild/tank move.

People assume Lin is garbage but don't notice his shooting is better, he's one of the league leaders in pts. in the paint and he's 25. When the 15M dollar is gone after next season, they can always sign him to a MLE or cheaper contract b/c no team is doing the poison pill thing w/ him again.

If the Celtics are rebuilding Lin = draw and young player w/ talent in their starting line up. He can easily be Boston's version of A.I., quick first step, good footwork in the paint and the knack for big time performances.

If this is just meant to be an indicator that their teams would be willing to move these guys, I don't think this is breaking news. The two pelicans have unfavorable contracts, and Rondo is just now returning from his injury.

I don't think NO is going to find any team this winter to take those two contracts off their books.

Well, he's 25, he's become an extremely efficient offensive player (59.1 TS%) and he provides a TON of marketing opportunities for a young Celtics team that's years away from competing for anything. Also, you don't think the Celtics would love to rub Lin in the face of the Knicks four times a year? And just because he costs $15 million in reality, the $8.3 million against the cap is a pretty good deal for a 6th man type who can get you 15 efficient points per game.


Yeah, because (Sarcasm) Lin has the PG spot on lockdown
So, is that what it's come to as a Jazz fan? Your franchise is so irrrelevant that you come to the NBA forum and take a few sarcastic jabs at other teams' players? That's okay. You always have those Stockton/Malone championships to fall back to. ..........Oh wait.

Lol yeah , from a Houston Radio most likely....Houston just needs to pucker up and shell out those 30 mil to Asik and Lin ---with those genius contracts, Ha ha ha!
And yet people totally forget the fact that the Rockets were playing both guys a combined $10 million the last two seasons. That's a steal for a top 10 defensive/rebounding center and a solid offensive sixth man. But yeah. Go ahead and focus on a single year of the contract. Because, you know, a single year of a contract is the only deal that matters, right?

The thing you're forgetting is that the $15 million is what the owner pays, but it only counts as $8.3 million against the cap. And you don't think Lin would easily make back that $15 million in terms of the marketing dollars he brings in from Asian markets? I would wholeheartedly disagree.

What are your thoughts on the Asik situation?

I'd like them to keep him, because they're clearly a better basketball team when they have him there to anchor the second unit's defense. Is it worth it to spend $15 million for a guy who only plays 15-20 minutes a game? If it means they've always got an elite defensive 7-footer in the paint, and it's only for one more season, I'm all for it.

Unfortunately, I think he wants to start, which means he'll either be gone by the trade deadline or gone in the offseason. If he absolutely wants out and is becoming a distraction, I think Morey needs to lower the asking price a bit. I just hope they can get some guys who can help out the rotation, which has been dangerously thin lately. I'm not expecting an All-Star caliber player in return, and I really don't care that much about first round picks.
