Report: Celtics & Lakers talked Rondo trade last week

Chuck - Red's Army March 12, 2012 Uncategorized 24 Comments

Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times has the story:

The teams talked last week about a trade for Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, though nothing was close to accomplished and discussions dried up.

The Lakers are unwilling to trade Pau Gasol for Rondo, making a deal with Boston unlikely before the trade deadline Thursday.

“Unless they give up Gasol, they’re not going to get a top-level point guard,” said a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to discuss it publicly.

How the hell can the Lakers even broach Rajon Rondo trade talks with the Celtics without being prepared to offer up Gasol?

Los Angeles has two assets, Gasol and Andrew Bynum. Everyone else is filler.

    lakers should delete danny’s number as they don’t have anyone the c’s need. btw marc gasol would be the better fit.

    They’re starting low. Let’s see where they are on Thursday.

    Can’t hurt to at least talk. I don’t think the Laker’s front office thinks they can offer up Troy Murphy for Rondo. A casual scouting of the possibilities seems all it was.

    Celtics & Lakers will NEVER trade with one another.
    Neither can risk getting the short end of the deal…and launching the other`s “next dynasty”.

    Celticslife is way better than this gay ass blog.

    Of course they can, and eventually will someday.

  • trytryagain

    Woah. Celtic on Celtic trolling????!?!

  • Danno

    Celticslife’s comment sections are full of incoherent dopes who write like 3rd grad dropouts.

  • Danno

    Funny, considering all the vehement denials about Rondo trade talks last week.
    Ooops. maybe they are still trying to trade him. LOL.

  • wootay

    Is reds army gonna have that trade day chat up like last year???

  • DD

    They already have in 2004. Banks, Mihm, and Atkins for Payton and Fox.

  • paul

    Danny should stop ‘listening to offers’…

  • paul

    Yeah, RONDO SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!

  • paul

    Yes, it DOES hurt to make your best players feel like they’d be fools to commit themselves to a team that is disloyal to them.

  • paul

    homophobia is great

  • paul

    We must always believe every word Danny and Doc say, because it’s good to be a mindslave.

  • paul

    As I recall, Danny was telling us right up to the trade deadline that nothing was in the works. In fact, he’d been madly working to trade Perkins. He is a liar.

    Let’s trade Rondo for Nash, G. Hill and Lopez……it won me a championship on Xbox NBA 2K12…so it’s already proven to have worked.

    Nothing better than seeing our readers defend the blog.

    Weak, you said the same thing a few days ago and no one gave a shit then either.

  • Celticslife

    That was a “Garbage-For-Garbage” trade….between two teams going nowhere {LA had just lost Shaq} anytime soon.

    No ones really telling the truth. I trust rumors more than interviews from GMs and Coaches. They’re just keeping the cards close to the chest. You know that.
