Default Pacers want Rajon Rondo from Celtics

And the two teams have reportedly discussed it to see if something can be worked out.

Skim-read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=8642

What do you think of Rondo? How would he do on an empty, rebuilding team that needed him to take control?

He'd be an afterthought, but while he is quite overrated, Pacers would have to give us Paul George and George hill for him

Ainge is eager to have some trade and some kind of sparks in his team. But clearly, he does not want to move KG, PP and Ray Allen.

Rite now, the button is on and looks like Rondo is going to be placed somewhere else.

I hate to see Rondo go (truly), but if it means landing CP3 and, in turn, Dwight Howard next summer... I'm all for it. Resign Garnett and Allen next summer to one year contracts...

KG and Ray are coming off the books after this season and thats over $30m worth of contracts. Hopefully if a move for CP3 materialises, it can attract Howard over.

Wow....i can't stand Dwight "Cry Baby" Howard and Chris "Flopperella" Paul, but i would not be opposed to us attaining those players.

Getting Rondo w/o giving up Paul George then being able to sign Nene or Marc Gasol'd be pretty awesome. I'm assuming Hibbert'd be part of the deal.

You'll likely get David West.

They're not signing David West with absolutely no C and guys like Nene and Gasol out there. With the roster as is West makes some sense, w/ no Hibbert it doesn't.

and you're okay with that?? Rondo's weaknesses will be magnified greatly in any other situation.

Are you joking? You realistically think Boston has a shot at grabbing D12 and CP3?

I honestly don't know if I'm OK with it or not, just seems like a fairly realistic scenario. A Rondo/George/Granger/Hansbrough/Nene or Gasol lineup is pretty enticing.
