Jeff Goodman suggests drafting Smart to aid trading Rajon Rondo

Goodman doesn't seem to be a Rondo fan.

Doug Pensinger

Jeff Goodman is a respected talent evaluator for ESPN - especially at the college level.  He is also apparently not a Rajon Rondo fan.  This has been documented.  So it shouldn't come as a surprise that he suggested that the Celtics trade Rondo.

Goodman Mock 3.0: Smart, Warren for C's - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

"General manager Danny Ainge likes [Julius] Randle, [Noah] Vonleh and Smart -- but taking a point guard at this spot also would allow him to dangle Rajon Rondo and have a backup plan

I asked him on twitter what he thought the Celtics could get for Rondo.

So, would you rather have Rajon Rondo and someone like Aaron Gordon or Ty Lawson, Marcus Smart, and the 11 pick (where you might still be able to get Gordon)?  Personally I'd like to keep Rondo and take my chances.  But that's just me.
