In response to BCSP's comment:
So you would pay Rondo max $ after next season?
Yes, if the other pieces fall into place. Here are a few scenarios that I see:
1) Address the need at 5. If the answer is Asik then we are not getting a top quality player. Also, this will be a trade.
2) Draft a 3 with great instincts (high IQ). Jabari Parker is the answer here. That will need some prayers as well (Get cracking Pud).
3) Sign AB in the $8M range. Draft a 2 and hope that he is a quality player.
With the new salary cap and luxury tax rules, the Celts will have to combine rolling max/large contracts with quality rookies. They are in a good position to do so.
Prakash - as always good points - BUT - is Rondo worth max $? I say no, Rondo is good - but - not max money good!
If DA's plan is to keep Rondo, then why does DA trade the Cs best 3-point shooter (Lee)? Without an outside scoring threat opposing teams will simply pack the paint!
In addition, I think DA is on a mission to get K. Love! K. Love is definately a franchise player!
