He may have thrown him under the bus a little while back, but Danny still wants Rajon on his side: “Danny Ainge confirmed today the Celtics will begin contract negotiations with Rondo, who has one year remaining on his contract and is seeking an extension, and agent Bill Duffy. ‘We’ll have an opportunity to sit down with Rajon and get something done,’ Ainge said. ‘Those conversations won’t take a long time, I don’t think. Rajon is in a situation where we certainly want him and consider him a big part of our future. This time of year, it’s one of those circumstances where we would want a deal that’s good for us and gives us security and he wants a deal that’s good for him.'”
