Rondo's Agent: No Talks Yet

Via the BostonHerald

With 10 days to go before the deadline, Rondo’s agent said he is not in discussions with the C’s. Perhaps they will reconnect and work out a contract extension before Oct. 31; maybe they will not, and Rondo will become a restricted free agent next summer.

"I don't care about that," the coach said. "I really don't. That'll be something that'll be handled. I'm not concerned about it. I've talked very little to him about it. We've discussed it a little, but you can tell in his play that he's fine. . . . It'd be better for all of us to get a new 10-year deal, but, having said that, I don't think it'll affect his play. I thought last year that may have been more of an issue. I think this year we're good."

It is not known how much Rondo is asking for, but a source said it's not the maximum.

“My agent’s got a certain number in mind and if they don’t reach that, we’ll just wait,’’ he said. “I feel like if we win another title, obviously that helps my chances [of getting more money].’’

Rondo said Tuesday that he never confronted the Celtics on the trade talk and added that his relationship with Rivers is fine.

“If you ask Doc, I don’t think he had a problem with me,’’ Rondo said. “With him being a former point guard and me being a point guard, of course, we’re not going to see eye to eye all the time. But I think people blew that situation up. It’s just like at [the University of ] Kentucky, when people said I had a problem with [coach] Tubby Smith -- but I never did.’’
