Brad Stevens says Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger are progressing well


According to Ben Rohrbach on Twitter, Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens says that Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger are progressing well.

Both Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger have publicly stated that they’re doing well in their recovers. Sullinger figures to be ready quicker than Rondo, who the Boston Celtics are hoping to have back in time for the regular season.

Stevens said he’s spoken to his point guard on the phone and exchanged a number of texts since their only face-to-face meeting after Stevens was hired on as head coach of the tema. At least to start, the Stevens-Rondo relationship seems to be going pretty well, so far.

Brad Stevens also said the word “Tanking” is not in the Boston Celtics vocabulary. The team is looking to rebuild after the departure of the “Big 3″. While Stevens may not want to use the word tanking, it will be pretty hard for the Boston Celtics to compete for a playoff spot given their current roster.

Rajon Rondo is the only All-Star caliber player left on this roster and he is currently recovering from a torn ACL. But you can never tell when it comes to sports, having a group of unproven youngsters could surprise you.

We’ll just have to wait and see how things go in Boston during the regular season.
