Re: Rondo needs to jump ship.. where can he go?
I'm not sure if Rondo is the missing piece for the Pacers. He is a very good player but can't shoot and is very ball dominant. George is not a spot-up shooter or someone who needs a good pg to get him buckets.
Assuming they'd lose Granger and Hill to get Rondo, don't see who would be the shooters around him. George and West? Lance can't shoot. They'd be scary in the open court, but that's not playoff basketball.
Hill is a good PG for them. He just needs to get better at running the team and find consistency. And of course, they need much better bench players. Hopefully Granger will come back strong and be willing to come off the bench.
