1. What the is that source? Just a twitter account?

2. "Unnamed players" better be some pretty damn amazing ones. Can't imagine what players the C's and Kings have collectively that could net the 1st overall pick. In fact, I'd say flat out that they don't have them. I'd imagine both Sacto and Boston's picks are going to Cleveland...

3. Can't wait til the draft is over. I'm all rumor'd out!

Unnamed players? What players are worth the #1 pick? I assume Cousins isn't involved as the vision would be to pair Rondo with Cousins.

The Kings want Rondo. And If im the Celtics, I'm taking Isiah Thomas and 2 1st rounds

This might be the biggest BS rumor yet. So Sacramento gets Rondo, whose adamantly said he doesn't want to go there and then Cleveland gets what for the no. 1 pick? Nothing? The no. 8 pick and crap?

That unnamed player better be demarcus cousins or Isaiah Thomas otherwise what kind of deal is this, isn't Thomas a restricted free agent so it better demarcus cousins or it's a dumb trade. I doubt this is true king would never trade cousins

Zeke is a FA tho, that's the problem. Can't trade him now. Assuming Boogie's off the table...there's just no combination of players that is even worth Cleveland's time. So, yeah...IF this is a legit rumor (meh) Boston and Sacto's picks moving to Cleveland makes the most sence.

Yeah... I gotta assume it's the kings first and Boston's first to Cleveland for the first pick. Kings get rondo. The unnamed players are probably just details to make the trade fair and work salary wise- as the trade is probably in initial stages only.

As a kings fan- I'm torn on this trade. Not a big rondo fan. We are also rumored to be trying to move up in the draft for Embid- just don't see us having enough to trade.

Sounds like something cleveland would do honestly

BOS gets: #1 pick, Ben McLemore, Jarret Jack, Travis Outlaw, Reggie Evans
CLE gets: #6 pick, #8 pick, Jeff Green, 2015 LAC 1st round pick
SAC gets: G Rajon Rondo, #17 pick

SAC offered more than that for just Rondo w/out another pick coming back last year according to reports. I think this is a bad deal for them but their FO seems willing to make it. I know Rondo said he wouldn't re-sign there, but trading for his close HS friend Josh Smith might help (they still have all the pieces involved in that rumored trade). There are some SGs they could take at #17 to round out their starting 5 with Rondo/Gay/Smith/Cousins.

CLE had some rumored interest in Jeff Green before the Deng trade last year and he fills a need at SF for them. #6 and #8 give them 2 high picks. Maybe they could work out a separate trade with ORL…

CLD gets: #4, Aaron Afflalo
ORL gets: #6, #8, Anthony Bennet

The Cavs come away from all this with a lineup of…

Irving
Afflalo/Waiters
Green
Thompson
Zeller/Embiid

… and enough cap to offer Lebron a max deal. If he doesn't sign they have cap space to sign other pieces. They want to compete immediately and this helps them do that IMO.

From BOS's perspective, we get a franchise player in Parker that we can build around moving forward. The team would still be rebuilding for another couple of seasons but we'd, at least on paper, have that 1 guy you need to build around. Bradley/McLemore would be a nice SG tandem as would Olynyk/Sullinger at PF so there would be a nice start going forward. They still would have a ton of picks over the next few seasons to hopefully address C and PG, not to mention god cap space in the next few seasons after this.

Cleveland would have to get 6, 8, and more. Maybe 17 from Boston too?

Rondo has been linked to Sacramento since the beginning of time.

If Rondo goes to Sac, almost have to believe they pursue Smith from the Pistons

I think they will pursue Smith either way.

We (Kings) are linked to everyone in the league including moving up down or out of the draft...

Is mulatto Spanish for "quite possibly the least attractive woman to ever live?"
