    Philly should trade for Rondo.

    Monopolize the "PGs who can't shoot but can do everything else well" market.

    No.

    Chad Ford reported they would; they didn't. Still available.

    I'll be honest. Don't know much about UL ball or quality so reserve my judgement on Payton

    These comparisons are ridiculous. The first 10 comparisons were All-stars and HOFers, but McDermott is compared to Morrison/Wally.
