Kings Kings want Rondo?

Don't shoot the messenger here.... it's just a rumour without concrete sources, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway since it's an interesting proposition....

Quote:
According to NBA Buzz, the Kings are ready to send third-year point guard Isiah Thomas, rookie shooting guard Ben McLemore, shooting guard Marcos Thornton, power forward Jason Thompson, and two future first-round picks to the Celtics for Rondo.
IF that were to happen that would be the fastest rebuild that I've seen from a team outside of BOS and MIA's big deals. As much as I love Rondo it would be hard to say no to that if I were Ainge.

If Rondo comes back fully healthy, with his leadership that team could be something. That being said, that seems like a lot for a guy coming back from major surgery. I don't see the Kings including McLemore either tbh. Thornton is super underrated too, instant offense given the playing time. Was hoping he was included in the Raps deal, moving DD to SF.

Maybe they ask for Crawford or Lee with Rondo if they give up Mclemore

Makes me hopeful for a Lowry trade bonanza.

That should push Sacramento behind us in the tank race

Would be an interesting team tho:

Rondo
Jimmer?
Rudy
Williams
Cousins

i'd definitely be interested to see that tram play together. i think rondo could lead gay and cousins...putting them in their place. instead of being heroes all the time.

IT2, Landry, 2014 1st unprotected and 2017 first for Amir and Lowry. would ya? Lowry can play with his buddy again.

Gotta think Kings Raps discussed Lowry as part of the Gay trade but couldn't make it work.

That. ^^^

Masai would instantly become the best GM we've ever had BY FAR and Thriller would go to his house every day to shine his shoes for the next 5 years.

Wouldn't mind if we got in on this deal, maybe Houston gets rondo, we send Lowry to Boston and we get Crawford/Beverly? Obviously other pieces would be involved but that kind of deal might be possible.
