In response to R9R's comment:
Haha OK Rame ... some good points. You know who WOULD BE ripped sh!t ... RONDO being shipped out to utah.
Its hard to tell, but it seemed like Utah was more interested in keeping Big Al over Milsap. But both would be a good piece next to Garnett. I just think that Millsap may be a better fit in a 7 game series fight against Miami, where essentially everyone on the floor in the final minutes can handle (to varying degrees) LBJ.
If Miami goes small with Chalmers, Wade, Allen, Lebron & Bosh ... I don't see Big Al matching up well in a Celtics final line-up especially if KG is still involved. Am I wrong?
Rondo would be upset with going to Utah, haha, but they'd own him thru 2015 with the chance to pay him more than anyone else.
I agree that they now seem to be much more intent on moving Millsap, Bledsoe surfaced today in rumors for him. It makes sense b/c Al is the better player and can play C.
If the C's moved Rondo for Millsap and Bell then we have to keep Bass b/c the salaries don't work if we added Bass in. Besides thats way too much value for Millsap, but it could be more fair if we got Al and Hayward (yes Concord I think that is fair value for Rondo now that he is injured).
Any deal for Millsap that removes Rondo and is centered around Bass and a pick, or Melo, or throwing in Barbosa's exp deal... is a joke for Utah and isn't going to happen.
"Value for Rondo"? How does a PG who relies on his freakish speed, quickness, hops, and agility who just recently blew out his ACL, AND has been proven to be a less than perfect compliment to his present TEAM's winning culture have any real value at the moment? Nobody knows if he will ever be the same athlete again. Rame is right.....Trade him now, if you can! Otherwise you are rolling the dice on him coming back as the superior athlete that he was, AND that he will change his selfish style that lead to a floundering team under his leadership....
