According to the Trade Machine this would lose us 4 wins a year, I think that is total crap. If you look at our losses, so often it is due to betting absolutely murdered by opposing PGs. Rondo is probably the best defensive PG in the league. He is also one of the most prolific assist machines in the league, while being a good efficient scorer. If we had Harris as our backup PG and Rondo as the starter, we would dominate the PG spot. With Millsap out of the way Favors and Kanter will get enough minutes to truly develop without costing us much of a dropoff. (I personally think Millsap is a better offensive player, while Favors and Kanter are both superior defenders). Finally, dealing Miles will free up our rotation at the wings to 4 players and allowing us to get Hayward and Burks more minutes. From the Jazz standpoint this move would make us a contender. Personally, if it was me I would throw in one of our two picks this year to sweeten the deal.
From the Celtics standpoint it gives them a SOLID scoring PF to go with Garnet down low. Millsap is young and was in the top 10 talk of MVP prior to the All-Star break. Also, Boston gets Miles which gives them an expiring contract SF who is a decent young slasher (something they don’t have) who can back up Paul Pierce. I don’t know why Boston would trade away Rondo, who has been their best player for a few years now, but if we can get him, I would love it.
