The NBA lockout still has basketball fans waiting for games, but fans and social media are still speculating on moves teams will make before the start of the next season.
The latest from Bleacher Report has the Boston Celtics making a move for Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets. The deal would include Boston point guard Rajon Rondo and would give the Celtics and their aging trio of stars a last chance at winning another NBA title.
While the Hornets will likely move Paul as he is in the last year of his contract and has no plans to return to the team after this season, Boston would need to add a lot more than just Rondo for the Hornets to even consider a deal.
Rondo is one of the best young point guards in the league and his toughness can't be questioned, but his limited outside shooting skills would hurt any deal the team would want to make, and the team's salary cap issues would also be a problem in acquiring a player like Paul, but the team will need to make some changes to their roster or suffer the same consequences as the team had after losing Larry Bird and company in the early 90s.
Look for the front office of both teams to at least take a look at their options for the upcoming season, but it would be highly unlikely a deal between the two teams comes to fruition.
