ESPN’s Chris Broussard is reporting via their True Hoop blog that the Boston Celtics if offered would be open to trading point guard Rajon Rondo to bring in another scorer alongside Paul Pierce. While scoring is an important factor, cornerstone point guards are hard to find. If you place to the right pieces around him, Rondo can create scoring opportunities for players.
Look at Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, they’ve both had the highest field goal percentage of their career last season both shot 49%. During the last three seasons Pierce’s per game average has increased and some of that has to be accredited to Rondo.
If I was Danny Ainge I would hope and pray Jeff Green can emerge as the 6th man and be the one who can provide some scoring, as I would say scorers are easier to find than franchise point guards.
