Hoopsworld has this absolutely stunning trade rumor:
Additionally, sources have told HOOSPWORLD that the Boston Celtics do have interest in (Pau) Gasol for their All-Star point guard.
The Celtics have the potential for sizable cap room this summer but there is no true sense that Dwight Howard or Deron Williams would be within their reach.
Gasol has two years on his deal after this season which happens to line up when Paul Pierce’s is set to expire.
The Celtics have shopped Rondo on a number of occasions. For a number of reasons, sources say Boston does not intend to rebuild their roster around Rondo.
The drop off from Rajon to second-year player Avery Bradley (a capable defender but not as experienced as a playmaker) may not be as significant to the Celtics as the void in the middle that Gasol would fill.
Boston could consider bringing back veterans Ray Allen and Garnett, while using their remaining spending power to improve at the point. Alternatively, they could renounce the rights to their free agents and come up with at least $11 million in cap space.
I'm not buying this. No way. No how.
