BOS gets the dynamic scorer that they're apparently looking for to take some pressure of Pierce and gets back Perkins... who they sorely missed.

Not a crazy deal by any means IMO.
Chemistry wise I don't think it's a great deal. All outward signs point to rondo being a problem in the locker rooqm, imo. you never hear much about it, but they've been way too eager to part with a productive young player. that should be a red flag to potential landing spots for him.
