Like Danny Ainge in real life I'm acquiring as many first round picks as I can, but unlike Ainge I'm trading Rondo instead of making him my captain and giving him an extension.
Rondo is pretty much my favourite player in real life so this hurts. A lot. But this pretty much completes the quick rebuild that started last off season when KG and PP were sent to Cleveland for draft picks. Dallas also gets Allen and Bass and their lineup could contend this season.
The scariest part of this trade is the length of George Hill's contract, but he's a solid point guard for a contending team, in real life, and I like to see him as my new Dennis Johnson in what I hope will be a rebuild that eventually allows me to contend (obviously).

Mavericks accept. Fully aware of Rondo's current struggles but I could not pass up the chance to go for one of the league's best court generals(when healthy) without having to give up Dirk or ET. Bass is still solid, and though Allen is fading - I still think his skill set will be a good addition to this Mavs team.
