Paul and Howard control where they ultimately end up. Boston is not trading Rondo for a 1 year rental, and the same goes for whoever the Clippers offer.
Why won't Paul or Howard sign a long-term contract with Boston or Clippers?
that's what i want to know
You'd have to ask them. But Paul's already shot down the idea. If I had to speculate, Boston doesn't have the greatest reputation amongst black players, and that's been true for years and years. Plus, it's freezing cold for a good part of the year, and isn't the "big time" the way that New York is. (which is also freezing)
I don't think either has explicitly shot down the idea of the Clippers, but they both come from organizations that badly mismanaged teams that had the potential to be pretty darn good for a while. Can they trust that Donald Sterling won't do the same?
