Is it possible with rsync to not create directories on destination?

MY SOURCE:

a/
a/x.txt
b/
b/y.txt
b/c/g.txt

MY WANTED DESTINATION:

d/x.txt
d/y.txt
d/g.txt

Is there any way to do this with RSYNC?

Yes, iff file names are all unique, and you know the list of directories in advance:

rsync -v -dm -lptgo a/ b/ b/c/ d

(Slashes after directory names are important.)
