Report: Rajon Rondo says possibility of free agency intriguing

Celtics [1] point guard Rajon Rondo [2] told ESPN.com that the idea of free agency carries some intrigue for him, though he stopped short of saying that he had decided with any certainty to pursue that avenue at the end of his current five-year, $55 million deal that runs through the 2014-15 season.

“It’s kind of like, I would say, maybe college recruiting,” Rondo told the website [3]. “I’m pretty sure a lot more goes into it in the NBA. A lot more money is spent.

“I’ve heard stories, guys getting called right at midnight. It’s something that I haven’t experienced. I may want to go through it. I haven’t thought about it at all.”

Another report on ESPN.com [4] suggested that Rondo “was quick to kill talk of an extension” when approached recently by the Celtics [1].

Rondo, 27, is averaging 6.7 points, 5.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 24 minutes a night in the six games since he returned from his torn ACL. The Celtics [5] are 0-6 in games where he’s played.
