Ainge: Rondo talks continue

CLEVELAND  —  Celtics [1] general manager Danny Ainge said discussions continue with the agent of point guard Rajon Rondo [2].

“I won’t talk about that other than to say we’re just having discussions with Rajon and Bill Duffy, his representative and we’ll continue to have discussions with them, probably all the way up until the 31st [of October],” said Ainge [3], who also denied reports that contract talks had broken off.

“As far as I’m concerned, I’m not aware of any discussions ending,” he added.

The Celtics have until Saturday to negotiate a new deal or Rondo becomes a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
