Who (on the Celts) need Rondo most?

Over the past few years something I have come to notice is how some players really need Rondo to succeed and others don't. The most glaring example of someone who needs Rondo is Brandon Bass. He simply does not have a knack for creating his own shot away from the basket. Down low he can in a good matchup but being undersized at the position doesn't help.

The most glaring example of someone who does not need Rondo is Paul Pierce. Rondo is great at "random" offense which helps create open shots for PP and others, but Pierce it one of the best when it comes to creating his own shot. When Rondo was injured last year, Paul put up some of his best numbers all season.

So I wanted to get everyone's thoughts on who needs Rondo the most, who does not, and how it is going to effect the rotations.

Here is how I see it but would be very interested in hearing from everyone...

Rondo makes a huge difference: Brandon Bass, Avery Bradley, Courtney Lee, Chris Wilcox (& would have included Ray Allen)

Do not need Rondo as much: Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, Jared Sullinger, KG (because he is KG, not because of style of play. He can play well with anyone)

Not sure where to put Jeff Green, Fab Melo, Kris yet.

With all that said, I am curious to see who is on the court when Rondo is on the bench. My preference would be that both PP and Terry are on the court to prevent major scoring droughts that our bench has been known for over the past few years. Although PP (& Terry) might not be "bench players", I'd like to see them on the court when Rondo is out to keep the pressure on when we are winning, and keep on in the game when we are losing.

Thoughts?
