    Default Rajan Rondo

    @WolstatSun: Sun sources: Raptors kicking the tires on Celtics star Rajon Rondo. Nothing close, but team high on him: http://t.co/tnDcVMhAEy

    I'm all for it if Casey gets an extension. Both him and Rondo are defensive minded. Both are from Kentucky as well.

    I don't actually think Rondo is that much better than Lowry... but..

    He's a legit star (name/brand-wise). Bringing him in could be a stepping stone to adding another all-star down the line.

    I wonder what a deal would look like though? Maybe Lowry and picks going back the other way?

    2 unprotected first round picks or a lottery pick + a talented young player?? no thanks.

    We don't even know if this guy is the same player. He suffered a pretty serious injury last year. Tore his ACL and he hasn't played much at all this season.

    What we saw from him up to date this season proves that he's still the same... if there's something he's better, having added some 3 point shooting to his game.

    If we are going to use draft pics, I'd rather keep Lowry and get a good young PF (Derrick Favors?) to grow with this team. Rondo has injury concerns plus attitude issues. I don't see it being a good fit.

    The injury has made me so conflicted. Love the guy and what he has brought to the table in the past, but I still don't really know how I feel about this.

    um hes only played like 10 games this season. that hardly proves anything. nor does a 10 game run prove anything about his 3 point shooting. the guy hasn't EVER played a full season in his entire career and the closest he ever has was back in 2009.

    Lowry this season has been better than Rondo has ever played, maybe other than the playoffs when The Celtics won. But Lowry has been so good this year, giving him plus a first doesn't intrigue me.

    The benefit of trading for Rondo is he is signed for one more year after this one, we could lose Lowry for nothing.

    Rondo also seems to have a decent reputation around the league with players, he has won a championship and gets teammates involved, he may attract a good free agent this summer to put the team up another level.

    There are various good reasons why to keep Lowry, and there are various good reasons why to have Rondo. I'm fine with both options.

    rondo has been 1st team nba defensive twice and 2nd team nba defensive three times. let the league in assists twice and steals once. lowry has never touched those numbers. better scorer? yes. better all round player? not so sure

    @BrettNBA: To be clear on the Raptors-Rondo rumor going around. Toronto doesn't intend to move Lowry right now.

    Realgm (via Spears/Yahoo) had this to say:
    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba-pow...medium=twitter

    Source said Kings and C's discussed a deal involving Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore and a pick for Rajon Rondo, but Rondo wasn't interested in re-signing with Sacramento and the Kings strongly value McLemore.
    So if this was true, the Kings basically offered two prospects and a pick. That would be like Toronto offering Ross, JV and a pick for Rondo. Even if Rondo indicates that he would be interested in re-signing with Toronto.. that's an expensive offer.

    I like Rondo.. but he's not a very good offensive threat, and that could create a lot of problems considering they don't really have many offensive threats to begin with.

    But Rondo is totally a guy that I could see TL wanting. He's a star player in the league. Some of it might be hype, but hype also helps lure other talent. Very intriguing.

    According the RealGM, Kings wanted to get Rondo for Isaiah Thomas, McLemore and draft picks, but trade didn't happen because of Rondo's lack of interest to sign long term with Kings. Would he want to sign extension with the Raptors? I'm not sure...

    EDIT: Didn't see it was mentioned before

    I think Lowry fits better alongside DeRozan with his three point shooting. Rondo was once an elite defensive player, but I've heard mentioned numerous times that his interest on that side of the court isn't close to what it was earlier in his career. Add that to coming off a serious injury...oh and ya I'd be pissed if they gave up Ross or JV to get him!!

    Rondo seem more like a Casey guy. Casey is probably pushing this hard. I think it would be a three team trade NYK, TOR and BOS. Toronto gets Rondo, New York get Kyle Lowry and Boston gets that rookie from Knicks, raptor 2014 pick and Knicks 2016
