OKAY. HEAR ME OUT.
As a Celtics fan, I've come up with a couple of great Rondo deals!
Boston gets: Michael Carter-Williams, Joel Embiid
Philadelphia gets: Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Tyler Zeller
Why Boston does it: Cause Embiid the rim protector we need!
Why Philly does it: NO CLUE, but that's what makes it fun! But with Embiid set to miss some time, why not? Technically, Philly's coming out ahead since they get a player they can use right now!
Also, if that doesn't work, how about...
Boston gets: Paul George, George Hill, Chris Copeland
Indiana gets: Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green
Why Boston does it: They get one of the best two way players in the NBA!!!
Why Indiana does it: Like the Philly deal, technically Indiana comes out ahead because Rondo will actually play this year! They're built to win now and with Paul George getting up there in age, they would gladly mortgage their entire franchise's future for a year of Rondo!
Okay, okay...let's try this...
Boston gets: Roy Hibbert and David West
Indiana gets: Jared Sullinger, Tyler Zeller, James Young
Why Boston does it: PLAYOFFS BABY!!! They're automatically our two best players!
Why Indiana does it: They want to look towards the future? I guess? So...that seems like a fair deal for two All-Stars. Right?
