Doesn't make much sense for BOS since they'll be betting the farm on the next 2 seasons or so and relying HEAVILY on Pau and Pierce to carry them offensively. If they're determined to deal Rondo they should do it for a high draft pick.
Pau has a lot more game left in him. He's not really one to rely on his athleticism, and is a lot more fundamentals like Duncan. You can't really write him off yet, and maybe Boston would prefer a PG that could shoot the 3. I don't know if Bradley's been under some secret training or something but getting rid of your star PG who is a cog and not rebuilding is kind of weird.

maybe this could expand with Houston, who wanted Gasol in the first place.
