Talk in BOS was always that Rondo was friends with Rudy Gay and wanted to play with him. Him and Josh Smith are old high school friends too and SAC just talked to him. Rondo/Gay/Smith/Cousins could be interesting but if they all get along that could be in a good way IMO.

Cousins needs a pg like rondo... this could work!!!

Pass first pg, strong defender which equates to requiring less help D from Cuz... its kind of exactly what Cousins needs .... the only thing is, will the personalities mesh ?

right, thanks for the reminder. Rondo is still a good defender at the pg spot. He just needs to stay healthy and find the right team. I didn't say he was an all star caliber player still. I said he is a good defender and pass first which compliments Cousins. I think that's a fair statement to make.

sorry im not bashing the kings like every one else. I know that's the trend right now.

Honestly couldn't be any more wrong. Cousins needs a pg who has the ability to spot up and shoot at a high percentage. Now on all of DMCs postups he will have Rondos man double him.

People said pairing up Gay and Cousins wouldn't work... but they have complimented each other pretty well. So we'll see what happens. Its a 1 year deal, so I'm fine with it. The risk is minimal.

Great fit for Rondo.

It didn't work out for him in Dallas because Carlisle used to call every play for the PGs to run. thats why they clashed. With George Karl, he allows his PG to hold the ball and create plays.

low risk signing, its only for one year at 9.5 mil.

Rondo is a cancer. Selfish, and acts like a spoiled child if he isn't getting his way.

And he has never been a good defender. Easy to look good gambling left and right when you have a wall behind you to clean up your mistakes.

I thought he was the most overrated player in the game back in the Boston success years. At this point, I wouldn't pay him 500k to play for my team.

Didn't Rondo have a lot to prove entering a contract year, when he pissed off every single person in the Mavs organization in a matter of months?

Dude doesn't care about anyone but himself. I wouldn't sign him for any amount, no matter how little.

I think it has a much greater chance of blowing up. I mean he just got done pissing on a playoff team, and still was rewarded with a 9.5 million dollar contract. You think he is going to take that contract as an insult? What is he going to do when he's on a losing team?

Also, Karl isn't any more of a players coach than Carlisle is.

Oh, I agree that it's more likely to blow up. I wasn't a fan of going after him, but if Karl and Rondo (and Cousins) can make it work, the team is talented enough to push for a playoff spot. It's just a whole lot of ifs.

Should certainly be entertaining though...

It definitely isn't an ideal situation to have Rondo on a team where there isn't a KG type guy to keep him in check, but what else were the Kings going to do? They threw an extra 8 figures at multiple free agents who turned them down. Again, at least he's only on a 1 year deal and at least makes them an interesting team to watch.

I agree 100%

Rondo is a perfect example of what happens when you draft an athletic point guard who can't shoot. By the time they hit 30 and their athleticism decreases and they become useless.

Some of these types of point guards have developed a jumper, but Rondo spent his whole career without developing one and now that he's lost his quick first step, and also can't defend, he's as close to useless as it gets. I'd take pretty much every single starting point guard over Rondo right now.

DeadWrestler
07-04-2015, 04:10 PM
I'm not a fan of Rondo's game. He's the worst free throw shooting PG I can remember off the top of my head.

1 year 9.5 million is relatively cheap though, and pretty low risk. If it works out the Kings will have plenty of money to sign him to a big extension next year.

I really don't see how George Karl, and Rajon Rondo have any possible way of getting a long though. This just seems like a relationship that will be blowing up real soon.

But no, then you got other cars(free agents) running you over like they don't even see you there and not offer you any help whatsoever

so now you got run over by the first car, the other cars run you over and now your probably feeling pretty ******.

but its okay a doctor(rondo) comes by to help you get better, only for you to realize he hasn't been practicing for over 4 years and was just recently fired from his most recent office.

You're talking about the Kings?

The FO doesn't want a rebuild, so I don't know where you're getting that from. The Cousins trade rumors were all the work of Cousins' agent. Vlade made it clear he had zero intention of trading away the team's star player.

The team, on all fronts, is focused on putting together a winning team for when the new arena opens in 2016. As a Kings fan, I've heard nothing to suggest otherwise and have been hearing this since the arena deal was finalized.

Vlade Divac I think has done an excellent job bridging the tension between Karl and Cousins at least for the time being by placating both of them and adding talent to round out the team. The Rondo addition is obviously risky, but he's close to Rudy Gay, and he and Cousins have both expressed a lot of respect for one another, so it could be worse at this point. Karl will have his work cut out for him, but he's got a lot of talent to work with. He's going to be a Hall of Fame coach, so it's not unreasonable to trust him to handle it.

It's easy to hate on what the Kings do and make assumptions about them given the lack of coverage they typically get and the mess that was the lead up to the draft, but this is a team that would have done a lot better last year had the coach not been fired while Cousins was out with meningitis for weeks after a hot start. Then we were left with Corbin as the coach for a few months before he got fired, too. Thankfully, the GM behind all of that is gone. The key parts to the team that had that hot first month of the season are still in Sacramento, but some of the fat has been cut and replaced with players that look like they'll bring something to the team. There is a legitimate chance that these moves work out well.

The NBA is still in Moratorium. All the deals aren't binding yet because it was just agreed upon, no contract was signed yet. The Kings can still rescind that trade if they want.

no they cant

Sixers are a joke. Sam Hinkie is annoying and he seriously over values his players. I hope he fails.

lol who exactly has Hinkie overvalued? other teams value our massive cap space and our forced to pay a premium for it, its is really a beautiful thing.

also FYI: Knicks won LESS games than the Sixers last year

Yes they can ... they will have to come up with a "reason" but the deals are not DONE until they are actually done.

It's a bad idea for a franchise, an owner, and a GM ... but it has happened in the past.

God I hope that team implodes by then and trades off a bunch of guys and fires the coach.

Only gives us more chances for another high pick :)

Enjoy watching Nik brick wide open threes

The pick swap is irrelevant because you guys are gonna be garbage, even if we do suck our pick is protected.

I would say 3 seasons ago. His last 2 years have been pretty bad, but he is still only 29 years old and they only signed him to a 1 year deal. I still say it was worth a flyer for this team. He just needs to do his job and he'll be fine. For Rondo its all about fit and health. Is this team the right fit for him and is he healthy? If yes then he'll help make this team better.

Dallas clearly wasn't the right fit for him.

It's obviously not going to be rescinded as the Kings have agreed to a bunch of free agent contracts. However anything agreed to between July 1st and July 8th are verbal agreements. None of them are binding. Until the paperwork by both teams are submitted to the front office nothing is official and nothing can be submitted between July 1st and July 8th.

People in this thread act like we signed Rondo to a 4 year 55 Mil deal..

The way I see it is if Rondo wants a chance at continuing a career he better play well , and if he doesn't and causes problems? We cut him and move on...

Collison /Rondo
Ben /Rondo
Gay/Marco
Trill/Gay
DMC/Kosta

Can make some noise, so let's see how this pans out before we laugh about it

sure if u wanna get technical. its not like the Kings would go back on the trade then go back on their agreements with all these FA's they would be become an even bigger laughing stock (no offense).
