In response to Eldunker's comment:
I had Rondo as 10th best PG in the NBA last year. Michael Carter-Williams of the 76ers is the real deal and an early candidate of rookie OTY. IMO, He knocks Rondo to 11th place among PGs behind:
CP3, Parker, Rose, Westbrook, Curry, Irving, Lillard, Wall, Holiday, MC Williams... then Rondo (the WORST 3 point AND free throw shooter amongst all guards in the NBA)
Rondo is tied with Deron Williams and Lawson for 11th. Dragic and Vasquez could knock him to 15th is he doesn't come back at least as good as before the injury.
Trade Rondo!! and get another 2014 lottery pick!!! Smart or Exum replaces the over-rated-one for our rebuild and a run at another Championship
Not a fan of Exum, and Smart is more of a scorer then passer, I think. Out of the 2, I like Smart, but not as a point guard. If you don't like the fact that Rondo struggles with the 3pt shot, then I don't understand why you would want these guys. They both struggle with perimeter shooting, jump shots, and a questionable shot selection too. Exums' ball handling isn't the greatest, but he supposedly has a high BB IQ for his age, and he's 6'6. With that in mind, I still wouldn't take that with a top 9 pick in this 2014 draft. Too, what kind of talent is he playing against downunder? Talent pool can't be very good down there. Luc Longley and Bogut are the only pro players from Australia that I can think of. And Smart averages 3.4 TO's per game himself (yuck). Someone had made the mention of using Smart at the SG position. I like that idea (though he's not known for being athletic). Also giving him time at the point. But not as our starting PG.
I'ld look to fill other positions with our 2014 draft pick. Or just take the best player available. Like I said, I like Smart, but he's not going to give this team the jump we need. I'ld much rather take Embiid, Randle, Cauley-Stein, Wiggins, or Parker (just to name some). I think those guys have more potential to impact a team then Smart or Exum. With a whole college season to go, any of those guys stock could rise or fall.
I may be wrong, but hey, that's just my opinion, to date.
Well said. I agree. I think if are going into this draft to fit around our current players, I think Jabari Parker is most fitting. We need that versatile offense threat. He's been compared to Paul Pierce and Kobe Byrant. He could fit in well with Rondo and Avery, and Jeff could be pushed to the four, come off the bench or most likely traded.
