Rondo trade talk, is it really true?

The source is a has been. He was a major NBA guy in the 90's on NBC, but who is this guy now? This rumor is about a month old. This is one of those deals that you, can't take serious. Gasol for Rondo? The only one that makes sense would be Williams, for Rondo. When I say that makes sense, I don't want a trade by any means, and I'm sure you all know that by now, but trading the future for a player in his 30's? With a horrible contract? If Danny deals Rondo for Gasol. I would want Danny to get his head check. I know Danny isn't shy about trading Rondo, so any rumor may have some truth to it.

If the Lakers indeed are interested in signing Rasheed Wallace — a logical step-down from flirting with Gilbert Arenas—it lends credence to the Rajon Rondo/Jermaine O’Neal-Pau Gasol swap I keep hearing. Lord knows they’re desperate for a point guard and Rondo is exceedingly obtainable and Kobe Bryant loves his "any means possible" style.

I still think Rondo will go to the Pacers, but admittedly, LAL seems more and more likely. I grant that this trade doesn't make sense, but this situation as a whole makes no sense. As far as I can see, few folks in basketball are thinking reasonably, apart from perhaps Presti.
