Baby Suspended, Rondo Still Talking

Rondo and Davis are the center of attention for a lot of Celtics fans right now...

ESPN.com reports that BBD has been suspended a minimum of two games:

Davis is expected to miss at least six weeks, and the Celtics said he will be suspended for his behavior.

"We'll suspend Glen for the game [Tuesday] and [Wednesday] night, and we'll have further discussions on how long that suspension [will last]," Celtics director of basketball operations Danny Ainge said. "We'll probably keep it more internal, but we will suspend him.

"It's very disappointing and very unfortunate. He's a big part of our plans right now and, in a game like tonight, we'd love to have him. I think he let his team down by making a bad decision."

Meanwhile, for those hoping that Rondo signs an extension, don't lose hope yet:

It appears Rajon Rondo and the Celtics could still get a contract extension hammered out this week, after all.

Rondo’s agent, Bill Duffy, flew to Cleveland for the Celtics’ season opener against the Cavaliers tonight and was expected to meet with C’s general manager Danny Ainge.

Duffy declined comment, but team and league sources disputed a Yahoo! Sports report that had Duffy saying negotiations on Rondo’s extension are done and that the point guard would become a restricted free agent next summer.

"We still have until Halloween," said a Celtics source.

Rondo, who appeared to be surprised by Duffy’s comments in the report, said "I don’t know what he’s saying. Right now I’m just focused on Cleveland.

"I would like to get (an extension) done. It is what it is, but it’s not like I’m worried about it. ... The contract will take care of itself.

"It’s interesting," Rondo added. "Guys warned me what it was going to be like, but everyone has to go through it for themselves."
