Rajon Rondo Reportedly Open-Minded to Brad Stevens Hire

by July 05, 2013

After the Boston Celtics shocked the hoops world by hiring and making a commitment to Brad Stevens, everyone wondered how temperamental star point guard Rajon Rondo would react to the news during such a tumultuous offseason for the C’s. According to the Boston Globe, Rondo is cool with the move. For now, anyhow: “Well a source close to Rondo who has talked with the guard since the Stevens hiring said Rondo is looking at the move with a ‘completely open mind.’ Rondo makes his offseason home in Louisville, Ky., and it’s uncertain when or if Stevens will meet or speak with Rondo before training camp. Stevens is scheduled to be introduced Friday morning at a press conference in Waltham and most certainly will field his share of Rondo questions. ‘They both have a lot to prove,’ the source said of Stevens and Rondo. ‘Might as well do it together.’ Rondo, who has two more years left on his contract, is coming off a torn right anterior cruciate ligament and is expected to be ready for training camp. Stevens signed a six-year, $22 million deal as coach.”
