Since joining this blog, I have made many hypothetical trades. Some od these trades are for bringing in Vets, orhers for trading Rondo. After watching this team colapse through the season and almost every game, I am starting to wonder, What is the goal here. Rondo is not going to stay with the Celts come 2015 unless there is a major overhaul in talent, sorry but non of these guys are on par with Rondo's game(Sully is the closest). To keep Rondo happy and to have him excel at his best, he needs to be around very talented players. So with that in mind, I ask the big question, if we are to stay the course of being a young team to grow with our young coach, Should we trade Rondo?
Scenario 1. Celts win the lottery. If Embiid's back is healthy and there are no red flags, he is my choice. We are in desperate need of a Center. The Lakers get the 2-4 pick, would you trade Rondo for the 2-4 pick and Draft either Wiggins, Parker or Exum? My trade with the Lakers would be Rondo & Wallace for the Lakers Pick & Nash. We get rid of Wallace's contract for Nash's expiring one. I would then trade Bass & Green for 50 cents on the dollar to shed these contracts.
Scenario 2. Keep Rondo. The only way I see this working is the Celts trade for some big name Players, ie.. Love, Anthony, J. Smith, Noah, Asik or any other proven player(s). This means trading guys like Sully, Olynyk, Green, Bradley and our high draft picks.
What is your opinion, do we go younger and devlop our talent or do we get better quicker and give up our younger players and high draft picks?
