    It's not an unthinkable offer. The Celtics aren't going anywhere this year or next. If the deal was just Wallace/Lee for Stat, the Celtics get 9 million in relief of salary obligation the season after next. When you throw shump and rondo in the deal, they'll have around 2 million off the books next year, in addition to lee and wallace's contracts in 2015/16.

    If anything, this is a bad, BAD deal for the knicks. which makes it all the more likely.....

    This is not a deal for the Knicks...............at this point we know we are not winning a title this year or next so we need to clean house and use our freed up money in 2 years..............BUT we all know our Mr Dolan and without draft picks he will try to build something so get ready to take on salary which will carry over over 2 years plus......

    I think this trade is for Melo's sake...he wants to play with Rondo but since we gace away all our draft picks it won't happen

    It is because is not giving that offer any thought as currently constituted...yes he'd take on Amar'e possibly in a salary dump(Humphries/Wallace/Lee) but he's not entertaining Felton/Shump/Amar'e for a Rondo package you do understand this right?

    The offer is not what you feel can get done legally under the CBA, it has everything to do whether the Celtics have interest dealing Rondo and they have DONUT....we're so punch drunk over fantasy.

    This is not going to happen. Celtics actually have a management team that know know something about basketball as opposed to our management whose only knowledge of basketball is that it is a spherical object.

    The Knicks can easily obtain Rondo if we take Gerald Wallace and Courtney Lee along with him but their contracts are death sentences. Better to just ride out this awful season and clear the books.

    Do you understand Wallace and Lees contract situation or did you just read the part where we could get Rondo?

    Did you not read Danny Ainge's direct quote or are you gonna act like a blind bat on an emotional roller coaster?

    Yes I saw his quote, and the only reason is because New Yorks offer was laughable.

    We offered Iman, STAT, and Felton for Rondo alone. We never said we'd take back Lee and Wallace which is exactly what the Celtics are looking for, if we are desperate enough to need Rondo then the trade would easily happen because the Celtics would be getting rid of 2 disgustingly bad contracts. If the Knicks took Rondo, Lee and Wallace, it would be a terrible decisions and clearly we wouldnt want to win anytime soon. So that is why, Rajon Rondo is not a Knick. Not because of a fairy tale but because we're not stupid enough to cripple our financial situation............yet

    Wrong they will trade Wallace and Lee possibly Humphries for Stat as a salary dump. Not even sure they'd do that to be honest. He's not looking to trade Rondo otherwise a deal would have been completed.

    Goodness Gracious...you need help

    .......You must not of understood what I said. Someone else can try explaining to him that the Knicks wont take Lee and Wallace because of their contracts unless it includes Rondo and even then the Knicks would have a hard time agreeing.
