Looks like Rondo talk is heating up again

I hadn't heard of the site before, but it cites Adrian Wojaroqkezi (spelling probably a little off) the Yahoo! NBA writer who always seems to be pretty plugged in to goings-on around the league. If you don't want to bother clicking the link, it looks like our end has us giving up Collison, Hansbrough, Rush and a pick for Rondo.

On the Hornets end, it looks like that may be the best offer forthcoming (no one else wants to send them a legit player) and landing Collison, Hansbrough, Jeff Green, Rush and a pick or 2 might be their best chance to get value for Paul.


At first blush, that appears a little drastic on our end. but that may be Pacer fans' irrational attachment to Psycho T. It also makes Larry's pursuit of Nene and even Carl Landry make a little more sense (if they're really shopping Tyler, it puts the frontcourt behind the 8 ball).

Pulling off this deal and landing Nene though could really set this team up well.

Starters: Rondo, George, Granger, Nene, Hibbert

Bench: Hill, Jones, Lance, FA signings

Obviously, this is a roster in flux and we don't know what it's going to look like come Opening Day, but that group of starters would get me excited and that would also be a team with youth, talent and -- most importantly -- flexibility going forward.

What does everyone think?
