Re: Teams with Scorers, Excess Big Men, but a Substandard PG

In response to Eldunker's comment:
Teams with scorers but lack a good PG include may be trade territory for Rondo:
Chicago, Utah, Detroit, Sacto, Indiana, Houston Toronto, Phoenix
Miami (no way Danny lets Rondo go the the Heat) NO (Rivers has been a bust and needs much more development than originally thought). NYK or LAL (long shots but we are looking to add youth for the future). I'm convinced that Sacto will not trade Cousins.
Teams with excess C or F/C Big men or soon to become FA are teams that Danny must be looking at:
Toronto, Phoenix, Lakers, Atl, Grizz, Warriors, NYK, Utah (more?)
By process of elimination, Utah (Williams PG - Big Al) and Phoenix (Dragic PG - Gortat) arei most likely candidates for trade talks, but we could get Big Al or Gortat without trading Rondo.
My conclusion is that a Rondo trade would likely involve a PG/C, not a true center, and would involve three teams.
CHI has Rose when he returns
UTAH - yes, and I proposed a trade to Utah weeks ago, which you all shot down.
DET - Brandon Knight is locked up at less money than Rondo
SAC - Yes, but they have a lot of players not making a lot of money. Rondo for Cousins and Evans works.
IND - just committed to George Hill long term
HOU - Ah, Jeremy Lin????
TOR - Lowry and no one to match salaries with other than Bargnani
PHO - Dragic
so, Utah and Sacramento, as I have been saying for weeks:
Green to Utah for Millsap
Rondo to SAC for Evans and Cousins
OR - Rondo to Utah, Millsap to Sac (salary dump at the end of the year), Evans and Cousins to BOS!
