Rajon Rondo says he's open to signing contract extension with Boston Celtics


The Boston Celtics are usually talked about at the NBA trade deadline and the player that is almost always talked about is point guard Rajon Rondo. It doesn’t even have to be the trade deadline and he’s talked about in rumors, but the team is starting to take steps that will end the trade rumors for a long time.

General manager Danny Ainge talked to the Boston Globe about not having any interest in trading Rondo and the Celtics star has spoke out about his desire to stay with the team through this season and even the rest of his career.

Per Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston.com:

“I don’t like change much. I wouldn’t mind staying here the rest of my career. Things don’t always seem to go that way, but like I said before, it’s just a business. I wouldn’t mind extending another 10 years in Boston.”

It seems that the Celtics and Rondo are in sync with one another and an extension could be coming soon. Ainge mentioned a few days ago though that he doesn’t think that it’s the right time financially for Rondo to make a deal, which not only shows the Celtics truly do have Rondo’s best interest in mind, but that it also might take some time to work out an extension.
