Default What can the Celtics get for Rondo?

What are your opinions on what Rondo's value is? If the right deal was in play then i think its time that the Celtics part with him to be honest.

Ideas?

Rondo has been a top 3 playoff performer for 3 postseasons in a row.

No thanks. You can't tell Rondo doesn't give a shit in the regular season by now?

smh

Rondo is never going to lead the Celtics to a championship as the number one guy

But lets be realistic, you cant get a better player than Rondo if Celtics were to trade him.

The Jazz will probably give you Jefferson and Mo.

I agree with this, mostly the offense becomes like Rondo dribbling for like 10 seconds and the C's only start their offense with like 10 in the shotclock.

But tbh he's got some intangibles that's really important like his dribbling skills (watching courtney lee as PG is just ), rebounding and time-to-time finding the open man but in terms of the long-term you need a PG who can score when needed.

Thing is there's not much PGs out there that's able to replace Rondo, probably Irving? or they could hope that Bradley turns out to be a floor general for the future..

They're on a 5 game winning streak and you wanna trade Rondo? He's not your problem. It's your rebounding and lack of size. Make a move for a legit 5 man.

OP is just trying to rub it in on "Rondo haters" such as myself.

Oh you mean like how he came within 1 quarter of doing it in 2010 and 1 quarter away from getting into the NBA Finals against the eventual champions?

Even though he is starting to piss me off with his lazy attitude, I still believe we need him for playoffs and against Heat in particular.

If Danny can get a good starting Center for Bass and draft picks, Celtics are SET!

In 2010 PP, KG & RA were all in much better condition than they are now and Ray is gone. As they age it becomes more and more dependent and Rondo and yes last year we came close but people dont remember how close people were to championships they remember who wins them. I didnt say that we absolutely have to trade Rondo but i said if the right deal was on the table, hence why i was asking for opinions on what people thought his value was. I like Rondo and hes one of the premier playoff performers. But i also think that the skills that he has are not ones that lead to championships. Being great at getting assists is great but we need reliable scoring and rebounding and hes just not consistent enough with scoring, exploding for one game is great but its not enough. In saying that though theres unlikely to be deals that will be beneficial from the Celtics pov

I would prefer to keep Rondo and trade Bass or somebody else aswell but i just dont know how much value the other players hold and whether or not they will be able to attract a player that will really make a difference. I would rather keep Bradley and Sullinger as well they both have potential.

Rondo was crazy last years playoffs, Its because of him and KG, the Celtics were so close to getting back to the finals.
17.3 PPG (46 FG%)
11.9 APG
2.4 SPG
6.7 RPG

I would'nt try and get rid of Rondo, i would just pair him with a younger wing scorer (If only Paul Pierce was younger ) and a big man who can run the fast break. Even Ian mahinimi would be able to thrive under a pass first PG like Rondo, not only that but he is an excellent PnR defender and can man the paint. (Mahinimi that is)

Right now, im hoping the Celtics get rid off bass(Sully can start) and bring in a guy like Koufos or Hickson who can start at PF?

recently another poster on ISH involved the Celtics in a 3 team(Forgot the third team) trade where the C's trade Jason Terry and Fab Melo for Marcin Gortat, I hope Ainge considers all options before puuling the trigger on any trades, especially with all these recent rumours on Paul Pierce. I regret that the C's did'nt get Landry during the offseason and rather spent alot of money on Bass and creating a logjam at the SG position.
