Rondo deadline extended to Monday

ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting [1] that the NBA has extended the deadline to sign players from the 2006 draft class to a contract extension to Monday, meaning the Celtics [2] have until then to re-sign Rajon Rondo [3]. Per Stein, the NBA moved the deadline to be in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement.

Thebo Sefolosaha was the fourth player from the class to sign an extension, joining Brandon Roy [4], LaMarcus Aldridge and Andrea Bargnani. Rondo is by far the best player from that class who hasn’t worked out an extension.
