    I'm not a capologist, but I'd like to ask those in the know out there to weigh in on how our trade exceptions, picks and young talent + assets could make a trade work for Rajon.

    No. Celtics wouldn't trade him to use for any less than Chandler Parsons at the deadline. The only hope would be free agency, but Beverley will be the guy we lose because we won't overpay him to back up Rondo.

    No. TJ/Dmo aren't headline prospects in a deal. Maybe we can showcase Nick J and Capela? We really don't have much unless ya like European players and draft picks in the mid 20s.

    Seriously I can see this free agency repeating in 2015.

    Beverley's a restricted FA
    Everybody except Howard, Harden and Ariza are traded for cap space
    Beverley's offered ridiculous contract
    No star free agents sign with us.
    We sign a older PG who's not as good as Beverley for the half price
    Morey and Les let it be known they will wait til 2016 free agency to chase Durant
    And repeat.

    Y'all don't think Bev, Tjones, Pels pick, and Capela could land us rondo?

    That's similar to what we traded for Harden.

    OKC GM ****ed up, you can't rely on other GM's being that stupid.

    We had a trade for Rondo at the deadline, the Celtics wouldn't take less than parsons.

    So NO! We don't have the assets to trade for a player who is better than Parsons.

    Yes, we trade Nick Johnson, Isiah Canaan, and our second round draft pick for Rajon Rondo.

    Idk, things are always subject to change. That Pels pick is very valuable! Besides, of the teams that need a PG, who can top our offer? I'm not saying they would take this for sure, but I think it's possible!
