Rondo’s absence has left a big hole in the Celtics’ roster and the question on everyone’s mind is: What do they do now?
ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan brought up Keyon Dooling's name as a possible replacement in the short term, but said Danny Ainge has already nixed that idea. She also suggested bringing Delonte West back into the fold, as he is currently a free agent, but shot that idea down citing his past issues with Doc Rivers and why he wasn't already a Celtic.
Other notable free agents who could be serviceable are Mike Bibby, Ben Uzoh, Jonny Flynn and Gilbert Arenas, but again, these guys aren't on teams for a reason.

Boston has always had a history of having at least one future hall-of-fame player on their roster. Now that Pierce and Garnett are at the end of their NBA career, the Celtics as a franchise are looking to remain relevant. The loss of Rajon Rondo makes it that much more difficult to see who on the roster will stand-up and say "I am a Celtic."

There are a couple of points I would like to hit on before I dive into this glorious trade you see above.

That it would allow Green to run with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley while allowing Pierce to a primary scorer...
