Celtics Offering Rondo For Paul
Nov 29, 2011 8:02 PM EST

The Celtics have been discussing trading Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul, according to sources. But the Hornets don't appear interested in a two-team deal.

Danny Ainge has been searching for a third team that would give the Hornets young pieces that would help Dell Demps in his rebuilding plan.

It is also unclear whether Paul would agree to an extension, something Ainge would need to execute a trade.

Not a bad deal for either side, especially if New Orleans is getting some extra pieces with a third team involved. It's no secret that Paul is on his way out of Louisiana, so getting Rondo isn't a bad consolation prize.

And for Boston, they need a change. And Paul is only a year older than Rondo, so it's not like they're giving away their blue-chipper for some over-the-hill veteran.

dumb, I think Rondo is a better fit for BeanTown. They only score 80ppg anyway. By removing probably the best defending point guard, and replacing him with a whiney nut puncher with a bad knee, we'd see Doc Rivers looking for a new gig within 2 years.

Honestly speaking I'm not that goo goo gaga over Chris Paul. Maybe it's because of witnessing his team getting mauled by a not so great Nuggets team in the playoffs. That and seeing Jose light him up the last time they played left a sour taste in my mouth.

Man.... Paul is obviously great but Rondo has done some AMAZING things for BOS... particularly in the playoffs. Dude played with 1 freaking arm!

I dunno... if you can't find enough offense with KG, Allen AND Pierce on the floor then there's something wrong IMO.

agreed. I love rondo. I think he's the perfect PG to be honest. Amazing facilitator and defender. He gets slayed for his shooting and i think it's a tad unfair. He's gotta try and improve that from last year but all round he's a fantastic PG.

Why would they want two PF's and jose? It's a bad offer for both teams.
