Regarding Sergio Rodriguez, my opinion is that his trade value is almost next to nil. Whether that's fair or not isn't the question, though—no matter if you're pro-Sergio, anti-Sergio, or apathetic toward Sergio like myself.

What I do wonder, however, is how y'all would react to Rodriguez being dealt elsewhere for such an underwhelming, yet realistic package like the one presented up above here

Although I'd personally like to see Kevin Pritchard hold onto Rodriguez until at least after the July moratorium -- since "Spanish Chocolate" could hypothetically be a throw-in to complete a summer blockbuster -- my gut feeling is that he may be traded on or before 6/30/2009 for financial reasons heading into the NBA's next fiscal year.
