Last couple years it was CP3 and Dwight.

There are rumblings of Kevin Love. We see Rondo is in a bad position. Also Lamarcus Aldridge is unhappy.

Do you see any of those guys available soon? Someone else?

Also Lamarcus Aldridge is unhappy.

He shouldn't be as much with some of the recent transactions his team has made this offseason. It's been a solid one for them thus far drawing praise from many. Certainly still probably not quite championship caliber good, but they are improving and as a franchise player you can't be too mad when management's clearly showing you that with their actions.

Hopefully Rondo and hopefully we get him. I've felt pretty good about our chances of getting him eventually since we learned of Dwight's fate last night.

Kevin Love is going nowhere.

 

He's gotta be happy with Minnesota finally being aggressive with acquiring players.  Minnesota is 2 years away from being a serious threat.  just need some experience at the playoff level and they'll be good to go.

 

Rondo will be ecstatic.  he has  coach he can push around, no veterans to call him out on anything and nobody to answer to for his attitude.  He's gonna be a pig in slop next year.

 

LaMarcus will be moved by the deadline.  By the way, LaMarcus is not a superstar.  A superstar is a transcendent franchise changing player.  There's very few of those in the league right now Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul.

Dont think wade belongs up there anymore.

You really think KD is gonna ask to be traded soon? I see that a few years down the road if anything. If OKC keeps stinking it up in the off season in getting players he will leave, but right now and everyone knowing how down to earth and humble the kid is I doubt any time soon he brings up getting moved.

I would say Westbrook before Durant. Russell might want his own team and be the man by himself.

Russell Westbrook seems to be a Dwight 2.0

 

Tremendous athlete and physical talent but just doesn't have the right mind frame.  Despite always having tremendous desire to win probably up there with Kobe when it comes to competitiveness the guy just only cares for himself rather then his teammates.

 

Lamarcus is quite but he'll probably be moved if Portland doesn't make changes.

Rondo is tough to call really, he can be an anchor and key piece to any Championship team.

Actually they have been previous to this offseason. Problem was they could never have everyone healthy at once. They were decimated by injuries as a whole last season. Never really got a fair chance to evaluate & see their full team.

Especially their main pillars in Love himself and Rubio. But if they can be healthy together which is a big if then they have a legitimate chance for a 7/8 seed. Their cast of Pekovic, Williams and Barea are pretty solid, once you throw in Martin then even better.

 

Actually at some point they had one of the better records in the West, probably through the first 20 games or so before Love or Rubio went down.

Agreed, but how could you forget KD?

So what is the concensus as to who is moved first, Westbrook or Rondo?

You are right Philly, you can take Wade out for sure.

Rondo (assuming he's extremely passionate about winning) cause he's got a worse situation around him and a new completely inexperienced at the NBA level college coach who he can probably easily walk all over.

I don't think Love is traded, but I'd bet money that he walks when his contract is up.
