Welcome to rumor season. The Morning Dump set the stage by letting everyone know Danny Ainge was open to trading Rajon Rondo. Now, people have jumped on that to ask about a Rondo for Chris Paul swap. And some writers are taking the bait.
This is how it's going to be, folks. Get ready for rumors galore. I'm not sure how the trade would go down, exactly. Every trade rumor right now would have to include a Glen Davis sign-and-trade… and the Hornets WOULD be looking for a replacement for David West. Would Baby and Rondo be enough for New Orleans?
I'll tell you one thing, if that trade went down, people would be screaming about big market vs. small market like you wouldn't believe. This is one of those scenarios that got us to the lockout in the first place. If the C's somehow managed to send Rondo and one other non-Big-3 player to New Orleans for Paul, small market owners my just implode.
