    Default Rajon Rondo deal in the works?

    I'm seeing random stuff pop up twitter about Rondo to the Raptors for Fields, Ross, Lowry and picks. Which would actually make sense for both sides if its true. I haven't seen anything from one of the usual suspects but I will keep people posted.

    File this one hard under "take with a grain of salt"

    It'd be real hard to trade for a guy with his injury.

    Actually @mynbatalk caused that rumour. It's not first time this account reports shit. Not first time.

    EDIT: Maybe BR articles are his "source"?

    Seems like a lot for a guy that's been devastated by injuries the past 3 seasons.

    Just for fun lets look at the proposed deal. Would you do it? I think most of us would depending on the picks going out. Here's what would work for me.

    To Raptors:
    Rajon Rondo

    To Celtics:
    Lowry
    Ross
    Fields
    Knicks 2016 1st rounder
    Future 2nd round pick

    This would be an amazing way to turn the haul we got for Bargs into Rondo. I'd imagine Boston would want us to add another 1st round pick to this deal, but with Rondo being hurt it's the perfect time to offer a slight low-ball like this. Being able to shed Fields deal is just icing on the cake. Being realistic I feel like Boston would rather just keep Rondo than accept a deal like this.

    For Rondo they would want the 2014 pick involved I would think.

    For sure. It can be expensive.

    Step 1: I read the thread title and think "oh my god, Raps must be giving up a lot..." I feel anxious, but excited...

    Step 2: I click on the thread link and I read... Ross, Fields, Lowry for Rondo. I'm like really excited, but REALLY suspicious at the same time as my realist part of the brain says "no way! can't be that easy" and my ever hopeful part of the brain tries to convince me that miracles do happen... sometimes... "you know, Rondo is hurt... bla, bla..."

    Step 3: after 2 seconds my eyes catch a line with the word "bleacherreport".... I'm devasted!

    Step 4: I laugh at myself for obvious reasons... yet I wonder how could I have let myself be tricked that easily in the first place. The whole super emotional experience lasted for less that 20 seconds. Being a fan is totally ridiculous, just like this very post of mine

    Are we even allowed to trade out 2014 1st? Since we traded our 2013 we shouldn't be allowed to correct?

    Too risky. If rondo plays like ass then we just gave up a ton of good pieces for an injury prone pg in his prime
