    How about something like this:

    With a sprinkling of picks/cash from both Toronto and Indiana to Boston. I don't think it is enough, but it may be close...

    As an aside, the mention of players such as Bayless as a "young player" in trade proposals really irks me. If a "young player" is considered not good enough to receive a qualifying offer, then I think he should be referred to as a "trade filler" or "marginal player". To me, "young player" suggests intriguing potential, something I simply don't see in Bayless.
    Generally I include him as a "young player", because I do see potential in him . I have seen everyone else's opinion, and I have my own.
    Seeing as he is only 23 he is still young compared to a lot of players in the league.
    None of us really know how GM's view him, so he might be considered filler for them, but some may see him as a young player who has potential as a scoring pg, or a combo guard off the bench.
    I am an optimist so my trade ideas generally reflect this.

    Bayless and Gray are end of rotation players or worse; their inclusion or exclusion has no impact on the trade in my opinion.

    So it's basically Ed Davis, DeMar DeRozan, and Jose Calderon for Raja Rondo and Ray Allen. If I was the Boston GM, there is no way I would even consider this trade.

    I'm finding it difficult to see how Boston benefits from this deal.
    They get four young players, and a PG with great court vision and passing skills?
    I know its not a good deal, but I thought it was when i posted it

    We get Allen and Rondo.
    I know allen is getting old, but i still see him starting for another year or two, and can be a great off the bench sniper for another year or two after that.

    Boston gets a whole bunch of young players they can build around.

    Our line-up:
    Rondo
    Allen/Barbosa
    MKG/JJ
    Bargs/Amir
    Val

    Boston:
    Calderon/Bradley
    DD/Bayless
    Pierce/Green
    KG/ED/Bass
    O'neal/Gray
    +their draft picks

    With Atlanta's pick going to Boston

    Do you think this would be enough?
    They get DD, Ed, Calderon and a first round draft pick for Rondo?

    Then our line up looks like:
    Rondo
    Lamb/Beal
    JJ
    Bargs
    Val

    With Amir coming off the bench

    Edit: Possibly throw in 2014 first rounder as well?

    I was thinking about something George Karl said, and I am paraphrasing, but it basically was that if you don't have superstars you should try to have a top ten player at each position.

    I know that it appears Rondo is not actually on the block, but I hope BCo is doing his due diligence because if (big IFS) Bargs 13 games weren't an aberration, Jonas pans out and we could get Rondo without giving up either Bargs or Big Val we would arguably have a top 10 pg, pf and center going forward...and all on pretty reasonable contracts.

    If it didn't completely destroy our cap space I hope BCo would therefore consider trading any combination of players, other than Bargs and Jonas, to get Rondo...

    Rondo said in the post-game interview the rumors have been blown off......

    Rondo going off against NY for 18 points, 20 assists and 17 rebounds. I just can't believe they want to trade him and not use him as their cornerstone. I don't believe the rumours about him.

    Boston wants a PG in return for Rondo
    Boston wants Barbosa

    So...

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=7vulmyz

    Calderon and Barbosa for Rondo and O'Neal

    Buy out O'Neal if he can still play and Boston still wants him. Otherwise just let him expire. Basically Calderon and Barbosa for Rondo.

    OR

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=7ulpbkg

    Same trade as above, but:

    Davis and next year's pick also go to Boston. This year's Boston pick comes to TO.

    Val and Robinson in the starting line up would be a great combination and our D would be solid once they've had some time to get some experience.
    the match up nightmare that bargs is, if he could keep the defensive intensity up its too valuable. if he were to falter and regress back to old bargs moving him later would still be extremely easy.
