Broussard’s Sources Say Rajon Rondo Will Test Free Agency
Rajon Rondo is a free agent after the 2014-2015 season. There has been a lot of speculation about the Celtics trading him while they are in rebuilding mode that the team denies. Now Chris Broussard’s sources say that he will test free agency:
“Though he is not looking to get out of Boston, Rondo was quick to kill talk of an extension when recently approached by Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge,” Broussard wrote. “It didn’t even get to the numbers stage. Rondo is looking forward to becoming an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career in the summer of 2015. It’s not that he’s dead set on leaving Boston, but he wants to keep his options open in terms of both winning and money. Ainge has to decide whether he wants to gamble on the possibility of re-signing Rondo or trade him around the 2014 draft or before next season’s trade deadline.”
Rondo did just say that he wouldn’t mind finishing his career in Boston so take this with a grain of salt. My money is still on him being traded.
