This is obviously out there, but I really like it. The Pacers get an All-Star point guard who can create and play defense, have the ability to move Paul George to small forward, and acquire a pure shooter.
The Celtics make the huge acquisition of a player who can be built around. It hurts having to give up Paul Pierce, but he is approaching the end of his career.
Orlando gets rid of a player who doesn't want to be there, and they get a legit starting small forward and a top big man.
Los Angeles gets another great scorer who already has experience with playing in a trio and will get rid of a player who is a bad fit for Mike Brown.
The Lakers should agree. Boston would consider it. Orlando might do it, depends on how that whole Dwight situation goes. I think it would make more sense for them to dump Hedo in this trade though, that's better value for them. Send him to Indiana. we obviously agree.
The question mark is what the Magic say, because they can't really contend with Granger and Gasol and can't really build a core around them.
I'm sure draft picks would have to go to Orlando to make them agree.
Add a draft pick from IND to ORL and they might agree. Good value IMO.
I'm a week late on this thread but I love the trade. Honestly, I'm not sure that Orlando is any worse off than they are right now, considering how much more advanced Gasol is as a scorer and passer than Dwight currently is.
Plus, I'd be willing to trade any player on our roster for Rondo.
Boston might be willing to take the entire starting five for Rondo..... or maybe not......:cool:
