The latest is Boston pushing hard for Paul and offering Rondo and Jeff Green (via S&T.... not sure how that works with an RFA as mentioned elsewhere on this blog), but NO is balking, wanting more young talent/picks and not keen on Rondo. Can't find a trade machine to see if this works (particularly cuz Green's salary is a ??), but the idea is this:
Clips in: Rajon Rondo, Trevor Ariza
Celtics in: Chris Paul, AFA
Hornets in: Chris Kaman, Jeff Green, Mo Williams, 2012 Minny, Boston sweetener
Not sure what I think about Rondo on the Clips (never really thought about it before), but I think Ariza would be a good add.
