Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics point guard, said that he did not give much thought to whether he will look at unrestricted free agency when his contract comes to an end after the 2014-15 season, but price per head sportsbooks found out that on Friday he acknowledged that he is intrigued by some aspects.
“It’s kind of like, I would say, maybe college recruiting,” Rondo said. “I’m pretty sure a lot more goes into it in the NBA. A lot more money is spent.
“I’ve heard stories, guys getting called right at midnight. It’s something that I haven’t experienced. I may want to go through it. I haven’t thought about it at all.”
On Thursday, it was reported that Rondo is keeping his options open when it comes to both money and winning, and looks forward to becoming an unrestricted free agent. Pay per head services then found out that on Friday, the player said that he didn’t have a response.
Recently, the Celtics and Rondo discussed a potential contract extension, but those talks were for the most part automatic. Price per head sportsbooks believe that this summer, negotiations will heat up, when Boston will look to tack three years onto the last year of Rondo’s contract, offering him a good raise and locking him in with a moderate salary that would let the Celtics add high quality pieces around the player.
And pay per head services are pretty sure that if he reaches free agency after the 2014-15 season, Rondo will be able to drive up his price tag on the open market and command a much higher salary.
“I haven’t thought about it,” Rondo said. “I’ve just thought about getting my leg as strong as possible, continue to shake off the rust this year and come back even better next.”
While the Celtics were resolute that they don’t plan to trade Rondo, they might have to think some more about that scenario if they can’t work out an extension during the summer – or risk being exposed if he reaches free agency, and price per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see what will happen.
