Rajon Rondo Opts for Free Agency

by October 27, 2009

Boston and its point guard could not agree on an extension, and according to his rep, Rajon is going to be a restricted free agent next summer: “We’re not going to do an extension right now,’ Bill Duffy said. ‘The conversation has been cordial. We’ve been talking the last couple of weeks. There is a difference between the perception of him in their eyes and our eyes. With that being said, the focus is on Rajon to have a fantastic season and concentrate on winning a championship.’ Duffy, who also counts Steve Nash(notes) among his clients, said he is seeking a contract that would pay Rondo like one of the NBA’s top five point guards. The Celtics, Duffy said, ‘feel differently.”’
