08:01 AM ET 02.08 | Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak may want to play his cards even closer to the vest. To the question, what would he like to address before the trade deadline (March 15th), Kupchak answered: "Well, if there were a way for us to get a 25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard we'd love to do it." ... [There] is exactly one 25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard in the league. Rajon Rondo. Note: "ball-handling guard" is triangle-speak for a point guard. Additionally, sources have told HOOSPWORLD that the Boston Celtics do have interest in Gasol for their All-Star point guard. The Celtics have the potential for sizable cap room this summer but there is no true sense that Dwight Howard or Deron Williams would be within their reach.

That's right Mitch--and if there was a way to acquire a 25 yr-old Micheal Jordan, he'd probably do that, too...

Weren't they supposed to use rondo and perkins as the building blocks for the future after the big three retire? How is it the celtics would get rid of both of them before the big three's contracts play out? Either way, I dont see this happening for a multitude of reasons.

It's more rumor than substance.
