Maybe you're right about moving him asap. Who knows though? All I know is that if they move him for someone short term like a Kyle Lowry or something I'd be pretty upset. If they settle for a young PG and they don't get a pick or something in return, they need to just sit on him and let him expire.
Those 2 will be Lakers IMO. If Melo comes too, even better. That said, I don't see a trade out there that is worth it for the other party. Boston is not trading Rondo until he gives up on playing with below average role players. It's not like they are signing any superstar this summer so they might as well wait until Rondo expires. Minny, stupidly, thinks Love wants to be there if they start winning. Bad logic. Both want to be on a contender and both would relish playing in LA.
I just don't see a Pau trade out there unless it's for 2-3 good parts but nothing great.
Our best move is to get a high pick this year and then build through free agency.
