NBA TRADE IDEA
NBA Offseason Trade
Celtics Recieve: Nikola Pekovic (C)
Ricky Rubio (PG)
Future 1st Round Pick
Wolves Receive: Vitor Faverani (C)
Rajon Rondo (PG)
* Celtics get a replacement for Rondo, and a very good starting center, as well as a pick *
* Wolves get a superstar in Rondo to keep KLove in town, as well as a backup bigman *
-- Celtics Core: Rubio, Pekovic, 2014 Draft Pick --> (Wiggins, Jabari, Randle, Exum)
-- Wolves Core: Love, Rondo + K.Martin, Dieng
I think that the future first makes it clearly lopsided in the Celtics favor. I get it that Rondo is probably the best player in the trade, but he's not a Pekovic and a future first better.
yeah, i don't think it's totally balanced, but thumbs up for creativity. the problem is that love isn't guaranteed to stay, and Rondo has only 1 year left after this one, so could follow him out the door.
If i'm the wolves, i don't want to give up that pick, or i might give up a heavily protected 1st (lottery protected) and ask for green.
I think a trade would be so good for Rubio right now- preferably to a team with a decent shooting coach!
Rondo is enough for Love to want to stay. Its too cold for him there anyways thats why they have soo many international players from cold climates.
