View Full Version : Rumor: Rockets after Rondo

Parsons may be in the trade, but he has the same agent as Dwight so I doubt that.


Morey is trying to make this happen. Has his connections in Bos with Ainge as everyone knows.

Don't be surprised if it happens as deadline approaches.

Lakers are looking to possibly get Rondo as well. Seeing if they can get that 2nd pick from a Pau trade to throw in for Rondo.

I really dont see how Rondo puts them over the top, without Parsons. At least Harden wont be able to chuck as much

The best defensive PG in the league? Who's also the best playmaker? Would be a match made in heaven for Harden and D12.

As much as I would hate to see Rondo go to the Lakers I'd be curious to see what he'd do under D'Antoni. With the way that Pringles works with PGs Rondo could be MVP the rest of the way.... or blow out his knee again. lulz.

Not going to happen. Rondo isn't signing anywhere that will give them high picks.

Sacramento offered Isaiah, Mclemore, and 2 picks, and it failed because Rondo wouldn't sign an extension.

Rondo will only stay somewhere that is a contender, contenders will need to give up huge amounts of later 1st round picks which are obviously worth less.

A 3rd team will probably get involved.

I don't want to lose Rondo, but right now how does he fit in the Celtics rebuild?

Dont think it would matter, in 2015 you can go for a max player type plus legit players, on top of all the draft picks to build around that guy.

Take their picks and then offer Rondo more money than the Rockets and hope they dont up his offer. Draft Jabari this year. Sign love and Deandre Jordan in 2015.

i don't think this rebuilding process is as long as others do. i dont see why we can't contend in 3 years if things go right. rondo, avery, green, sully, and we need to acquire a really good center and another scorer on the wing. rondo could still be prime

Rondo is nothing more than an average PG.

If HOU wants an upgrade at the point, then go after someone like Lowry and give up less. There's a reason why every team isn't trying to put together a package for him. I wonder why.

Can you imagine Paul, Westbrook, or a Rose on the block? Teams would lining up left and right and offering the house.. Hell, even a Wall.

Rondo would be ideal for the Rockets. But, I think losing Parsons hurts pretty substantially. I'd like to see them get Rondo without giving him up.

But, he helps in so many ways that aren't scoring. And he's gotten better at scoring when he needs to. Should be 3's and dunks for days.

I see how rondo can be valuable as a pure PG, but i personally don't buy into that pure PG concept. If his teammates aren't hitting shots, Rondo may as well be useless(assuming he doesn't catch fire, like he does once in a while) where as a PG like cp360 can pass and shoot. Almost all historically great PGs have been multitalented in the sense that they can score/pass/defend. Rondo's inability to score consistently makes him lose value in my eyes. Harden is a good passer too, he just needs to learn to buy into a team concept, versus him being so egoistic and self concerned.

Rondo avgd 17 pts/gm on 47% shooting over 19 games in the 11/12 playoffs. Oh yeah... and he also avgd 7 rebs, 12 assists and over 2 stls.

id love to see Rondo in a rockets jersey but not at the cost of Chandler "GOAT" Parsons... Parsons is undervalued by other teams, but overrated by Rockets fans -- Rockets gonna have to pay him ~9MM after this season to keep him so that's one reason to possibly trade him but the Rockets DESPARATELY need shooters and he is really the only reliable one we have

Obviously Rondo is more valuable/better than Parsons but I don't see how the Rockets can replace everything Chandler Parsons does for the team (most importantly his shooting).

Would like to have Rondo if it didn't cost Parsons.
Parsons is too valuable to this team to give up for a gamble and not a sure thing.

However a healthy Rondo.
Defense.
The ability to throw consistent lob passes to Dwight and ALWAYS having the thought of lobbing to Dwight over his own scoring play.. Damn..
And forcing (I don't say allowing - because he would have to actually force) Harden to play more off the ball. Harden operating in the post is absurdly productive. Would like to see more of this.
Wouldn't be all smiles and happy go lucky after a blown 20 point lead - he'd be snarling at players expecting better.
Lots of pros.

Cons is 3 point shooting. But the Rockets haven't been as good at the 3 this season as last so it's not too drastic a fall off. Although it will still hurt.
And he can be a nutter. And the potential to cause disharmony is there.

this is so overblown it's crazy

He was "padding" when he was averaging 16 a game for those first 3 weeks, everyone is literally talking about ONE ASSIST that he made vs the MAgic. I still remember the EXACT ASSIST, because I'm sure every Celtic fan was just like "wow cmon rondo wtf"

Somehow everyone who does not watch them on a nightly basis came to the conclusion that he was doing that on 100% of plays in 100% of games.

Rondo is the best/2nd best playoff pg, and he is the last true PG in the league. I think even Chris Paul is straight up not the passer/creator/defender that Rondo is, but CP3 is a much more proven scorer.

I would somewhat agree with this.

However, the whole Boston scorekeeper thing is garbage. The one assist you're talking about? Look at what team it was against. The EXACT FKN THING I WAS TALKING ABOUT. His "stat padded assist" was removed. That was also in the fkn 2010 - 2011 season.

You're legit just making sht up now. Rondo has ONE assist rescinded. It was a simple scorekeeping error, the assist belonged to Ray Allen.

Based on your post history you have a history of having no idea what you're talking about and then posting it as fact.
The only time I said he had an assist rescinded, is the only time it happened. I'm specifically talking about the scorekeeper being generous with his assists. I'm not the only one who has noticed this.

this is so overblown it's crazy

He was "padding" when he was averaging 16 a game for those first 3 weeks, everyone is literally talking about ONE ASSIST that he made vs the MAgic. I still remember the EXACT ASSIST, because I'm sure every Celtic fan was just like "wow cmon rondo wtf"

Somehow everyone who does not watch them on a nightly basis came to the conclusion that he was doing that on 100% of plays in 100% of games.

Rondo is the best/2nd best playoff pg, and he is the last true PG in the league. I think even Chris Paul is straight up not the passer/creator/defender that Rondo is, but CP3 is a much more proven scorer.

Id take a healthy Westbrook and Rose over Rondo. But have Rondo 3 behind those 2

Westbrook is not the same imo. Westbrook takes a pretty singificant amount OFF the table. Rondo only lacks a 3 point shot in the playoffs.

When Rondo plays aggressive, he is imo the best PG in the league. The real problem is getting him to do that on a regular basis, outside of the playoffs.

As much as I would hate to see Rondo go to the Lakers I'd be curious to see what he'd do under D'Antoni. With the way that Pringles works with PGs Rondo could be MVP the rest of the way.... or blow out his knee again. lulz.

Because Harden is far better in catch and shoot/drive mode which Rondo would set him up for.
It would keep harden from doing fail isos unless hes on fire, which is good for him.




As for Parsons, as loved as he is in Houston, hes young and already has bad back problems. Guys like that dont have long careers.

Rondo can't even carry a team to the playoffs.


lol now i know youre trolling

when the hell did rondo ever carry a team to the playoffs? he was playing with KG, ray allen and paul pierce.

do you actually think rondo would carry a team to the playoffs as the best player and #1 option on the team? MAYBE in the east, but that's only because in the east a team below .500 is still almost a lock for the playoffs. no way is a rondo led team getting even the 8th seed in the west. a rondo led team wouldn't even be better than golden state (GS would probably stomp them out).

rondo is a very decent player, but you guys who think he's a legit first option are so cute i want to pinch your cheeks.

as for peak jameer nelson being better than rondo? he was. jameer nelson on the 2009 magic was just as good or better than rondo ever was, and he was actually scoring not passing from an open lane because he's too scared to make a layup.

Lol? How was Rondo NOT the best player on the 2011-2012 team?

Nelsons best postseason was atually 2009-2010, nice try on your dates, his best postseason 19.0 4.8 3.8, BY FAR his best season btw, he never would come CLOSE to that again

Rondos 2 best postseasons were 16.9 9.8 9.7 in 14games and 17.3 11.9 6.7 with 2.4spgin 19 games

Jameer Nelson is literally not even 1/2 the player Rondo is, and you clearly edited it out because you must have actually googled the stats for more than a second and realized how bad Jameer ACTUALLY was.

Rondo was also on pace for another historic postseason in 2011 when he tragically destroyed his elbow in game 3 Agfter averaging 20 and 12 vs NY and totally 20 and 12 in game 2 vs the Heat.

they're over the hill obviously, don't blame KG's decline on a lack of rondo- you've got to be kidding me. he's 37 years old, 38 in May.

as for rondo making pierce better? the only time that celtics squad won a title was in 2008, when guess who- PAUL PIERCE was their main ball handler, not rajon rondo. so whatever rondo did when he took over, it NEVER made them better or anywhere near better than the 2008 rendition of the team (a team that rondo wasn't really essential on).

the true leader of that cletics squad always has been and always will be Paul Pierce. rondo should be elated that was able to ride the coattails of a TRUE basketball legend in Paul Pierce for as long as he did.

When was the celtics offense highly rated? In 2007-2008 they were 12th in the league. They were actually better the NEXT year with Rondo in an increased role, and that was without KG for the end of it.

After that, of course those players who are no longer themselves are going to become worse offensively, that's the nature of a team built the way it was. Rondo took an increased role out of necessity. In 2009-2010 they made the finals as the 13th best offense. Is that high powered?

Rondo hurt his foot early on in the finals iirc and played limited minutes. Pierce picked up the role as the primary handler. When Rondo did play, he couldn't shoot and we dared him the entire time. He was pretty much garbage that finals series.

Did you legitimately start watching the NBA when the Heat big three formed? Serious question. It's embarrassing you don't know chit about your own fuking team as recent as 2008.

so they're trading a top 5 PG for a bench of bench players?

If we want cap relief we'll just let him walk.





to Detroit:

Rajon Rondo

to Boston:

Greg Monroe
Charlie V (expiring cap filler)
2014 1st
2015 or 2016 1st



why Boston does it:

this trade actually gets them proper return. An improving Big for the future and a couple picks to build with.

Monroe (23) would join the rebuild with Bradley (23), Sullinger (22 in 2 weeks), Olynyk (22) and a slew of picks.


why Detroit does it:

you don't pay Josh Smith 14 million with the plan to stay mediocre. Rondo makes guys better. period. Smith would definitely improve as Rondo puts teammates in the best spot to succeed. Drummond is an animal.

Jennings has nice numbers and all but he's a chucker and always has been... He's not going to lead them anywhere.

Rondo - Stuckey - Singler - Smith - Drummond
6th - Jennings



Detroit is ready to be a playoff team again... not a borderline playoff team (in the East no less)





I really do think it's the best trade out there.

so they're trading a top 5 PG for a bench of bench players?

If we want cap relief we'll just let him walk.





to Detroit:
why Detroit does it:

you don't pay Josh Smith 14 million with the plan to stay mediocre. Rondo makes guys better. period. Smith would definitely improve as Rondo puts teammates in the best spot to succeed. Drummond is an animal.

Jennings has nice numbers and all but he's a chucker and always has been... He's not going to lead them anywhere.

I agree with this. Don't forget that Smith and Rondo were teammates at Oak Hill in High School as well. In his new article about the 40 worst contracts in the NBA, Bill Simmons talks about recently watching tape of them at Oak Hill and said he was blown away.

he maybe was, but he didn't lead them to even a conference championship. the only time the team was in the finals was when allen, KG and pierce had way bigger roles. rondo never would have emerged, he never would have even mattered, if he was not playing alongside 3 HoFers to pass the rock to. he's nothing like a tony parker or a chris paul, actual elite point guards. you have to be a pretty big rondo fan to think he's anywhere near that level.



confirmed. never watched rondo play.


Rondo is the best defending PG in the game. best rebounding PG in the game and a top 3 passer.
