    1. Soooo..they are now saying Boston would be willin to take STAT in a trade for Rondo, IF we would be willing to take Gerald Wallace or Courtney Lee. Listen, I know we’re all tired of adding on extra salary in order to bring in one piece we think would work, but I absolutely would take back Wallace in that proposed deal. Absolutely. Bring Rondo aboard and you have a young, champion all star PG. Bring in Wallace and u now have 2 SF’s that can guard the 2-3-4 in him an MWP. That also allows you to move to a starting 5 (if Rondo gets back before Tyson) of Bargnani-Melo-MWP-JR-Rondo and lose very little with a 2nd 5 of Aldrich-Kmart-Wallace-TH2/Udrih-Prigioni. That’s a NICE rotation. Then when Tyson gets back it’s Tyson-Melo-MWP-JR-Rondo with a 2nd 5 of Bargnani-Kmart-Wallace-TH2/Udrih-Prigioni. Again, a very nice rotation. I say go for it. If it doesn’t work and Melo leaves, we still have Rondo to build around.
